MySpace, the online social hub thatís been fighting to stay relevant in the age of Facebook and Twitter, is overhauling its image and its Web site into an entertainment destination for its mostly younger audience.

The social-networking pioneer, which was among the top Internet sites just a few years ago, now has its sights set decidedly lower. Starting Wednesday and during the next month, MySpace will relaunch its site to focus on giving users more ways to consume music, videos and celebrity gossip. Entertainment has long been central to the MySpace experience, but during the years, the site also was pulled in different directions as it dabbled in classifieds, job ads and even user reviews in a partnership with Citysearch as it pushed to become a social portal for the Web.

It didnít work out, and Facebook is now emerging as that portal.
