A message on its website says that “any photos, videos and audio files” uploaded more than three years ago may no longer be available.

There had been complaints going back several months that links to music were no longer working.

The platform has waned in popularity since it was founded in 2003 but in its prime it attracted millions of users.
In 2006 it was the most visited site in the US – beating Google .

Despite dwindling popularity, the once popular site used to be a major platform for emerging acts to host their music, with over 50 million songs from 14 million artists being uploaded during the 12 year period.

It was a popular platform for sharing new music, and has been credited with helping to launch the careers of artists including the Arctic Monkeys and Kate Nash.

“As a result of a server migration project, any photos, videos, and audio files you uploaded more than three years ago may no longer be available on or from MySpace,” the firm said in a statement.

“We apologize for the inconvenience.”
