    My mum has just found out that my 14 year old sister has a MySpace page, and she's not impressed, to say the least.

    It seems to me that almost everyone has a myspace page, and i was interested to see if the MR community was any different.

    Oh God, no!

    I hate MySpace, ever since someone pretended to be me and put up a fake MySpace profile. It was like pulling teeth trying to get MySpace to pull the profile. Too much abuse, plus the site is ugly.

    I have a Facebook account, though.

    The number of fakers is extreme on MySpace but I understand from a Facebook user that it's looking a bit more abused lately. It's sad that people aren't satisfied with being themselves.

    As with so many other things, I can't be stuffed.

    Both of which will be deleted this week.

    Yes, and you can call me Uncle when I meet with you somewhere nice and secluded.


    Actually no. I just don't 'get' Myspace. I spew all my rubbish on forums instead.

    Heck no. I'm all elitist and ****, so I'm Facebook-only. Now that FB is open to the public, I guess it's more prone to weirdos, but because Facebook is designed around the idea of "networks" (either regions, colleges, high schools, or companies), it's much easier to control who sees what about you. It has a lot more privacy controls built-in, so I feel the underlying system is much better at preventing people from seeing stuff you don't want them to.

    For instance, I can restrict my profile to be seen only by people who go to my college (since I joined in college, I'm an Alumni in that network), or people in the Los Angeles regional network who ALSO have a college network (i.e. people who joined JUST as a LA regional person will see me if they search me, but not be able to see my profile).

    I think this is a much better system than the MySpace free-for-all. It also helps that Facebook's page designs don't make me want to stab my eyes out with a rusty spork.

    I do, because it seems to be the way that all my college friends stay in touch after we all left uni. I keep in contact using email with some really close friends, but there's a lot of stuff going on through that. However, going on there to try and reply to comments always crashes my browser, which pisses me right off, and so I don't go on there very often, no doubt pissing all my friends off by not replying to them. :p

    I've met some new design/art folk through it too, which has been nice, but if it wasn't for the college stuff I don't think I'd bother with it. I might be more inclined to if it didn't bugger up my browser all the time.

    Dunno — I thought Facebook was just for the US? Maybe not, but we've all left uni now, and they're all on Myspace, and I doubt everyone would change over now. I'm just following the crowd anyway. :p .

    You crazy people in other countries that aren't my country. What's up with that malarky? :p

    Facebook is WORLDWIDE now, or so I hear.

    I'm more elitist than some on here and I don't have a myspace or a facebook.

    They're both a complete waste of time. Why do you need to have a webpage that really is just a total waste of space on a server? There's no real reason to have one.

    Plus, they're just for skanks and white boys with their ****** Hondas. I like knowing that I don't need to deal with that.

    And if someone really wanted to tell me something, they can call or IM me.

    Never felt the need or urge, and to be honest I think I'm a bit too old (44) for all that 'young people's stuff' :eek:

    Eh, Facebook was useful in college, like if you forgot to get the homework assignment and needed to ask someone in your class or other stuff like that. Now it's just an easy way to keep up with my college friends now that we're scattered about the country.

    It's been totally killed since almost everyone can get one with an invite code. Quite lame.

    The first time I heard about MySpace was on a news broadcast about pedophiles using it tp lure 12 year old kids into their basements.

    I figured it ws just for kids.

    Then a musician buddy of mine sent me a link to 'his' MySpace page.

    Looked like something Ray Charles would have made with Frontpage version 1.

    i don't know why there are so many myspace haters. its a decent promotional tool for artists. i plan to promote my novel heavily on there once i get it done. publishing houses would appreciate the effort.

    If MySpace doesn't die soon, we're going to need a subforum for it.

    MySpace is the root of all evil.

    I am proud to say I have not once been to any single person's MySpace page, nor have I ever looked at a MySpace page intentionally. I was tricked in to looking at a co-worker's page because she had it up when she asked me a question. I felt like a part of my soul was sucked out through my mouth.

    Absolutely Awful.
