    With other social networking sites taking over (i.e. Facebook, Twitter) Myspace seems to becoming more of a deadspace. I swear I get on my Myspace every now and then and I see old friend's who havent updated their profile for over 2-3 years. It kinda makes me sad because I used to love Myspace soo much. Now, everyone seems to be on the generic site Facebook. I never understood why it became so popular since everything on their is generic and boring looking.

    facebook had a better strategy to attract users than my space ever did. Initially you needed an .edu account in order to have facebook, that kinda made it a bit exotic and "what the hell is this about" to other users when they hear about facebook. This and other restrictions made facebook look by far more professional than other networking sites out there. Its interface was also more intuitive and clean compared for instance to myspace that allowed users to alter the HTML /CSS code of their pages making it in most cases a ridiculous rainbow pretty hard to follow through.

    Facebook's success is due to its usability and friendly yet profesisonal environment something that other networking sites like myspace could never manage to achieve.

    On the brighter side, "Deadspace" is an awesome video game!

    Myspace looks like a a garbage heap of poorly designed webpages that are hard to read. I never saw the attraction.

    As a music lover, I still like myspace over FB, too. Most artists have a page there and they are definitely better than their same FB pages. And, since it's free, I've noticed that some artists have their myspace as their main website.

    On the social aspect, I agree it's too bad that FB has taken over. Other than the sameness of everyone's pages, it seems like everything people complained about with MS is now true with FB.

    And do I really care what someone is eating for dinner all the time? Or how about when someone is on a date and then has to FB from their mobile to tell the world how romantic it is....?

    While Facebook has the most users, with Myspace not far behind and Twitter behind Myspace, of the three, I am still with Myspace, mainly because of blogging. I was with Facebook for about a month when Facebook said even if you deleted your pics, they still kept them and owned them. I deleted my account for that reason, but also not blogging space and I don't really care to know what everyone is doing every single minute of the day. Thank god Chris and the other Real Jock guru have the sense not to do that. As long as Myspace provides me a place like the blog space, I will never leave. And I will never join Twitter or Facebook. If Myspace goes away so be it. At the very least I will have Real Jock.

    I haven't logged into my myspace since October last year (and that was just to kind of delete things and take down information): http://www.myspace.com/biotechdude

    Myspace did have the music and the ability to personalize your profile, but the one thing that really turned me off was the number of fake profiles and spam profiles. It seemed it was easier to set up a fake profile on myspace than it is to set one up on FB. And that's primary reason I use FB more and stopped using Myspace. icon_sad.gif

    MySpace is so junky-looking. Most of the pages look horrible, like some really cheap website.

    I think FB has won the battle

    Although I think it is cool that u can design your own myspace profile, I just prefer the professional feel of facebook. Also, there was really no sense of community on myspace because a lot of people on there just constantly added people from all over the world they do not even know. It is as if they thought the quanity of friends they have is more imporant than the quanity of friends on their profile, I mean at least I know everybody on my facebook profile. Oh and I also thought myspace was a bit too grimey and ghetto for my liking, or at least most of the people were.

    I thought that the original draw, the lure to Facebook was that with its enhanced privacy features it was like MySpace as a gated community.

    I have haven't visited my profile on Myspace for more than 3 years. The thing that always put me off about myspace was the fact that other people's profile pages looked terrible.

    I also used to get contacted by weird women on myspace something that never happens on Facebook.

    I haven't been on myspace regularly since 2007 and prefer facebook because of it's ease of use and generic appearances. The problem with myspace was that it was too graphic-intensive and distracted away from the person on the profile way too much. I connect with people, not with graphics.

    I have an account in both Myspace and Facebook. But there are big differences between the two websites.

    With Myspace I don't reveal my name (as with Realjock) therefore I keep my profile public. The "friends" I have on this account are strangers I have never met, although I have one true friend on it as well. These "friends" are mostly bands who wish to promote their albums after failing to sign up with a record company. Remaining anonymous, I don't believe that whoever links up with me poses a threat. Another feature on Myspace is the blogging facility. Here I like to express my thoughts on certain issues, for example, how I feel about snow, my experience in hosteling, and does God know of, or even aware of, Yahoo or Hotmail. I have found it surprising how many people had read my blogs, as the number is recorded on the Manage Blog panel, as with the total number of views to both my profile and photo albums. And now Myspace has introduced a facility to download to my profile music videos from its own site, although stocks here seem to be limited, unlike Youtube.

    In Facebook, my real name is revealed, so I have set up my account on private, and only friends who I know personally has access to it. The good thing with the internet is that all friends linked to me at Facebook also has access to Myspace profile and blogs, by means of a one-way link I have provided for them.

    There is no link from Myspace to Facebook.
    I find that both websites have their own advantages.

    This is exactly WHY I adore Facebook. Some people need to be barred from posting sparkly text, videos, and high res photos.

    I only use Myspace for the band pages.

    Although I did have fun coming up with designs for the thing.

    LOL Yes I agree awesome game! Can't wait for the Sequel!icon_lol.gif

    On Topic:
    Yeah i have to say I rarely log on to myspace any more, it just feels a little outdated and facebook is more user friendly and easier to create a social network.

    Originally I joined Facebook just to view one of my friends computer animated work. After that i started getting friend request from family and friends i've been out of touch with. It's simple and straight to the point and user friendly for those who are not too computer savvy.

    I remember reading this article last summer, and chuckling at Murdoch's dilemma.
    http://www.crainsnewyork.com/article/20090614/FREE/306149981

    It couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.

    MySpace is in its death throes, much like what's left of Murdoch's soul. For that, I'm happy.

    Meh, I was never a fan of myspace, but everytime I went there it was just always really hard on my pc to load everything. Now that I'm on a netbook I'm afraid visiting there would crash it icon_confused.gif
