Lite View. MySpace has a new feature we call "Lite View." The purpose of the feature is to speed up page load if you visit a page that is bogged down by embeds. For example, say you hit a page filled with 5 YouTube Videos, 2 RockYou Slideshows and 3 Flash-heavy apps. A page like that is going to take a long time to download, especially if you're on a slow dial-up conncetion. Maybe you just want to see your friends activity stream, blog posts, or just want to leave them a message or comment. Well now you can click "Lite" in the nav bar to get a simplified, fast-loading version of their page. To switch it back to the full, just click Full. It toggles back and forth, and it'll stay on one setting while you browse other profiles until you switch it back.
Profile Shortcuts. We also have a profile shortcut feature that you should be aware of. Whenever viewing a profile, take a look at the nav bar--you'll see the users name at the end of the menu. There's a dropdown menu there that you can use to send a message, add a coment, or even go to other parts of a users profile (photos, videos, bulletins, or blogs for example). These shortcuts are easy because they're right at the top, but they're especially useful when a user has customized their page and made it difficult for you to find their contact links. Enjoy!
