Re: Does anyone still use myspace?

I ma on facebook more and more. I've found old friends and a lot of my relatives are on there also.  I still use my myspace. I log on at least once a day. My stalker is on myspace though, so, I don't add new content or really change much.  I'd say with the amount of ads and clutter that myspace is become over run with "stuff". I'm still getting used to facebook though.

Re: Does anyone still use myspace?

 

 i used to love myspace because of all the things you cold decorate your profile with. It does seem like it's on it's way out. I have recently joined Facebook and I love it. I've found many old collegues as well as friends and relatives that i never would have found on MySpace. I'm still getting used to it and finding my way around, but it's so much better.

Re: Does anyone still use myspace?
I haven't given up on myspace yet, but honestly most of my *real* friends are on facebook. So I'm there more often than on MS.
 
FB has a lot of advantages over MS, including its privacy settings, protection from spammers and some nerdy and useful apps that people like me like. Smile If MS is to remain competitive, it might want to study FaceBook's setup, marketing, etc., and base further improvements on it. I think the whole 2.0 thing is one step in the right direction, as the different parts of the profile have customizable privacy settings.

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

...imho, that is putting it nicely Wink

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.

Re: Does anyone still use myspace?

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!

Re: Does anyone still use myspace?

'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.

Re: Does anyone still use myspace?

 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 Wink

Facebook gives me a headache. I hate the way its set up. Its too confusing and makes me feel stoopid.

Re: Does anyone still use myspace?

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.

Re: Does anyone still use myspace?

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.

Myspace seems to be overridden with spammers and people who's only goal is get get as many 'friends' as possible..

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.

Re: Does anyone still use myspace?

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.

Re: Does anyone still use myspace?

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.

Re: Does anyone still use myspace?

lol Okay I'll ask, what do you mean by ghetto-er? Smile

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.

Re: Does anyone still use myspace?

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.
