i'm just curious. it seems like each and everyday i see more people not logged in theres and it's slowly dying and getting ghetto-er.
I still log in from time to time but it seems everyone but me has gone to Facebook. I opened a Facebook account a while back and closed it that same week.
I don't want to die without any scars.
lol Okay I'll ask, what do you mean by ghetto-er? :)
Myspace just isn't for me. I stopped logging in and then just stopped all together. Facebook? Opened an account and realized I wasn't logging in there either. So, now they are both gone. Sailing together in deleted webiverse bliss. Those were personal accounts.
Now I have a few test ones, just because I like to help if I can. Who knows, I may open an account again.
I still use myspace. I tried facebook but wasn't impressed.
I haven't had any problems with Myspace. I never get spam. The people I want to talk to are all frequent users. I had a facebook for about a week last year, and just like you I wasn't impressed enough to make the change.

Me neither. I don't get any spam. Of course, I have all my privacy settings as strict as they can get. I love the CAPTCHA features, which I wish facebook had. (or do they? I can't remember now.) I have a facebook too, which I like just as much. Well, the one thing I don't like about myspace is the "drama" from tweens. You can see it in their updates. Ex: "I hate you, you f&*king cheater!" Two weeks later: "I love him so much!" That kinda stuff... ugh.
Tweens??! I see that kind of drama from grown women! LOL.

I've never received spam. No problems, rare glitches now and then. I really liked making my page all pretty and adding music. But that was about it.
Now this I didn't get either :)
If you use Facebook, at least your "friends" are real..
*Edit/Update - when I say "spammer", i mean fake accounts trying to add you to their friends-list in hopes you'll come to their website.
I have one myspace and one facebook... all me. I had a myspace test page but forgot the login and also realized that I barely have the time for my real myspace page let alone any test page.
myspace is cool for people i would otherwise never know...but i log on maybe once a week, and that's it. there was a time i was on several times a day, so yes, i would be among that group that is quietly abandoning myspace.
I prefer facebook because it is more transparent and allows me to stay in touch with friends and family and school and work mates. I probably wont delete my myspace because there are a few people i really do like and only know online. And the music on facebook sucks. Myspace's real value is the access to the cool music, in my opinion which is the one area in which facebook lags waaaay behind.
I dont mind myspace. I have a personal, private one. It only has like 40 friends on it- REAL friends. No fakes, no spam, and i NEVER add anyone i dont personally know.
My other is a business porn page, so the more spam the better. I guess i like that ghetto part of it ;)
Facebook gives me a headache. I hate the way its set up. Its too confusing and makes me feel stoopid.
"If lightning strikes twice, I dont want to be standing next to you! "
You have a good point. Most of the myspace people are friends -- most of them I have known for almost three yrs. I only have like 30 friends on there and the only way to get on my page is if I add you or tell you my email address.
Facebook took me almost a year to get used to... I abandoned it completely for about 5 months but realized I liked the realness and simplicity of it all. Myspace is definitely prettier. It is just too much like a being a pretty girl all dolled up for clubbing. Sometimes I like being the comfy girl in a tshirt and yoga pants. That is what facebook is for me.

...imho, that is putting it nicely ;)
myspace may have won the popularity contest once upon a time, and with that comes bad press, security vulnerabilities, and those that ruin it for the crowd that does still enjoy myspace.
facebook's intent was to cater to the well educated & professional crowd and has always voiced that fact in the media. it has had a few bad press pieces but not to the magnitude that myspace has had to endure.
lol wow...so since i like myspace im uneducated and non-professional...not to mention a bottom feeder? Yikes...
no silly! i was reading an article on the same subject and lost the tab. so that was not intended towards anyone ;)
I still like Myspace. I run a couple of professional pages on it. Not sure about your comment about FaceBook's "intent". FaceBook is a big party. I'm not sure all the poking and throwing apples and such are necessarily what I call "well educated and professional", but, hey, everyone has to have a release. LOL!
'intent' maybe should have been 'originally intended for.' when zukerberg created facebook in '04 while attending harvard, it was intended as a means for college kids to keep in touch with each another. so what started out as a program exclusively for the ivy league eventually opened to campuses nationwide. then facebook became available to high school students. in 2006 facebook opened itself to the general public/anyone with a valid email address - - but for nearly half of facebook's existence, you had to be part of a school to sign up for an account. as it relates to the 'poking' and other app things they've gotten into lately, i think that was facebook's way of competing with myspace.

yes and it sucks..the upside to facebook is the fact that it is harder for you to be stalked and harassed.
