    Default Facebook or Myspace

    A recent conversation with a friend sparked this poll from me. Now, most of my friends (myself included) are on facebook. Mainly due to the whole college thing. I find it's a great networking tool, and keeping in touch with people among a few other things. Anywho, I was wondering if people have/prefer one or the other, or both.

    I keep a MySpace do to the large amount of people I can't keep in contact with otherwise, and because Facebook requires(or did, don't know if they changed it) you to be in school not a lot of people I know use it. I don't spend a great deal of time messing with it anymore though, just check/send messages.

    The reason I here of more people liking facebook is mainly due to the fact that it's "less creepy" than myspace.

    I have both, but I agree with your statement.

    I had MySpace for about two months, then I deleted it. As soon as I got to college, I got facebook. I'm not going to lie, I am hopelessly addicted to Facebook. I check it multiple times a day, and it is my primary means of communication with people. I find Facebook far superior to Myspace, though all those stupid applications you can add really annoy me.

    I'm homeschooled, so the school aspect of facebook is rather pointless for me.

    I have neither. What is the point to it? If it's just to keep in touch with people, wasn't that why email was invented? Couldn't you just keep in correspondence with regular email?

    That's just my two cents. *shrug*

    They're both horrible. Facebook is now overrun with stupid applications, and myspace gives me a headache because so many people out there do not know how to layout a webpage, or even pick colours that don't make me go blind.

    That said, I still have a Facebook account because once in a blue moon it lets me know about something going on. But I can guarantee you I'm getting rid of it once I'm done with uni.

    I agree with B-Man. I have neither and I'm fine with it.

    I guess it depends on what your friends/rest of your world have.

    And if it's for meeting people, well, then you're risking the "creepy factor".

    Yeah, but it's still pretty random. I see those MySpace pages artists make and they are all full of posts of thousands of people thanking for being added or something. Which sounds stupid, don't know, "ohh, this musician added ME, it must mean I'm special!". It's not like it means actual contact with the artist person.

    Also as it has been pointed out, MySpace designs tend to be jumbled and plain painful to look at.

    Yeah but they're like hand small homepages sometimes. Tour dates, info, new tracks, etc. And that's more of the larger groups, I like MySpace as a smaller group catalyst as well.

    Apparantly, from my brother, Facebook is excellent as a more impersonal version of Email. You can block someone without feeling bad, and they don't get IM privelages. Stuff like that. Nevertheless, I don't have it. maybe when I get "friends".

    I had a myspace for a while but then I got rid of it cuz everyone there was so annoying. I could tell what they were thinking as they put up every picture, bulletin, and blog. "Oooo look at me I'm so cool cuz I have a layout and a picture on myspace. I know everyone will read my blogs and care about my so called "personal issues" that are aren't really that important or interesting". I've never had a facebook but my brothers say its better cuz its not filled with annoying people like the ones mentioned above. Also they say it has the less creepy aspect of myspace. Ie friend requests from people you've never heard of.

    Meh, both Facebook and Myspace are instruments of the devil, used to try to make us communicate with other people. I'll stick with my self-imposed paranoid isolation, thank you very much.

    So do you bring a cross, holy water, or something when you come to these forums?

    I'm a facebooker, and I agree entirely with everyone in that the applications are ridiculous. Nevertheless I have a million of them, most of which I should remove. Never did the Myspace thing.

    I have both, though i greatly prefer Myspace, and am hardly on Facebook. My (kind of) band also has a Myspace page, and if we ever get music on it, and finalize the name and members, i'll probably wind up posting it here to get ppl's comments on it.

    People keep sending me invites to use those ridiculous applications on Facebook, and I keep disregarding everyone of them. That was one thing I really liked about Facebook. There was no opportunity for formatting the page to make it the way you wanted. None of the crazy pages some people have on MySpace where you have to scroll a mile to find the other end. Instead it was kept neat and organized, easily viewable. Now it's a jumbled mess, and it takes forever to find stuff on some people's pages.

    This a good point - myspace does seem to be tremendously 'emo' (whatever that really means these days), and every single person on there seems to be a photographer or, at the very least, an artiste of some description.

    Literally the only thing of any use on Facebook for me is the 'Events' feature, which lets me know what's going on around town. Literally the only thing of any use on myspace is the aforementioned peoplesl, who are hilarious.

    ...I used to have Bebo, which is what all my friends used/use.

    Deleted it though. Creepiness factor and such. Plus, I hardly ever updated it, and I never spoke to my friends over it. I much prefer to talk to them in real life or over MSN.

    Never used Myspace, never used Facebook.

    I've had both for about 3 years now and I have to say Facebook is better, although its slowly slipping. Myspace pages annoy the heck out of me because of how poorly some people do their pages (sorry if I offend anyone). I just feel lucky since I know how to program I can make a nifty page. Also the constant porn stars trying to get me to come to their sites is rather annoying. Or the fake emails saying "Hey I was looking at your page.." that you can get 3 times a day.

    Facebook has a much better fixed layout although the apps are making me hate it. Some are ok, but others make me wonder about some of my friends. The news feed was highly disturbing at first, still kind of is. Especially if your significant other is addicted to it. Then they get to know everything you do which just makes them paranoid(yes I am aware of the privacy settings, still creepy).

    So choosing the lesser of the two evils I choose Facebook. Its a good way to keep in touch with friends especially if you/they move around a lot.
