What Happened To Tom From MySpace? Hint: It Might Be Your New Computer Background


myspace tom

Remember MySpace Tom? That first friend you had when you made your MySpace profile? You probably haven’t thought about him in a while. That’s because he’s been off the radar since selling his company for $580 million back in 2005. Tom Anderson (bet you didn’t know that was his full name) has been traveling the world, like anyone with that much money and a sense of wanderlust should do. It just so happens that the 44-year-old social media maven is an amazing photographer. Just check his Instagram – appropriately with the username “MySpaceTom” – and you’ll be ready to pack your bags as well.

According to ABC News, Tom first focused on photography when he captured the sights and sounds of Burning Man in 2011. Since then, he’s been taking National Geographic-worthy photos from his world travels, including Norway, Moracco, and China. Over 120,000 followers have caught on to Tom’s talent and once you see this treat for the eyes, you’ll be hearting his pics too. And to answer your question, yes, his profile picture is still the same white shirt guy looking over his left shoulder.

Probably busy watching puppy videos on Instagram.
