It’s like uncovering a time capsule from 2007.

THE GOOD NEWS:
You can still go back in time and relive the glory of the mid-to-late ‘00s.
Can you remember the last time you logged out of Myspace? If you’re like most people, it was probably in the spring of ‘08, when Facebook overtook “A Place for Friends” and never looked back.
A decade later, Myspace is still around, although it’s not the same place where you first met Tom. It’s now a music-focused site that calls itself “The Best in Music & Culture. All In One Place.”
But much like a time capsule, if you dig deep enough on Myspace, you can uncover your old page from 10 years ago.
Like a land frozen in time, you’ll reveal a world where a young politician named Barack Obama was inspiring the country with a message of hope and change. A place where barely anyone had an iPhone and no one had ever heard of a selfie stick.
So, how do you go back to this magical pre-Trumpian utopia?
1. Go to Myspace and sign in.
If you don’t remember your password, click here and enter your username or email and Myspace will send you a password reset link.
2. On a desktop computer, click on the “Mixes” link. It’ll be on the left-hand side of the page. On a mobile device, click on the drop-down menu on the top left and click your profile name under “You.”
3. On the “Mixes” page, click on “Classic — My Photos” and relive all of your former glory.
