Remember Tom From Myspace? This Is What He's Doing Now


In the wake of Mark Zuckerberg's congress testimony and the recent backlash against Facebook's data sharing, we couldn't help but cast our minds back to a far simpler time in the world of social networking.

...Remember Myspace? 

In the early 2000s, Myspace was ~the~ place to be. The social networking site was all about good, clean fun - when it was cool to code your profile with glittery GIFS and Panic At The Disco songs, and your only cause of stress was who you'd include in your top eight friends.

Ahh, those were the days. 

Getting all nostalgic about Myspace also begs another very important question: what is Tom doing now!?

Tom Anderson, the co-founder of Myspace, has a place in all of our hearts as our "first" default friend, with a profile picture that goes down in history.

Sadly, Myspace couldn't keep up with Zuckerberg's fancy Facebook and Tom sold the website to News Corp in 2005 for a cheeky $580 million, before retiring in 2009.

The now 47-year-old is pretty much living out all our dreams in Hawaii, and has pursued a whole new career as a travel photographer. 

His Instagram account, @myspacetom, has racked up over 600,000 followers who live for his epic travel shots from exotic desitnations like Thailand, Butan, and the Maldives.

...And is it just us, or has he not aged in the slightest!?

Oh, and Tom bears no grudges when it comes to Facebook. He even has his own profile on the social network, with the same lo-res profile pic.

Since Mark Zuckerberg and his Facebook empire began facing public scrutiny, Myspace has started trending on Twitter, with fans demanding a comeback. 

Will Myspace be the underdog who saves the day? If Tom has anything to do with it, we've got high hopes.
