Myspace vs. Facebook?


I keep reading headlines that say, "facebook is taking the place of myspace" blah, blah, blah. Ok, so I realize the majority of people on the internet have a myspace or facebook page or both. Maybe some of you are wondering what the difference between the two is. I know a lot of people who prefer facebook over myspace but I don't really understand why!?

I have had a myspace page for about 4 years now. I really like myspace because you are able to customize the layout to look however you want it to look. You can pretty much do whatever you want with Myspace. You can add music or photos or graphics anywhere on your page.

You can't really do anything like that on facebook apart from uploading photos. You can't do any sort of customizing with your page. You can't change the colors or fonts or design it the way that YOU like, your page looks like everyone else's page! You can add status updates and comment on other people's status messages but you can do that on myspace, too!

The one thing I do like about facebook is all of the different apps., quizzes and games you can use. You can use an application without it slowing down your page like some myspace pages that have a lot of apps. used. I like the quizzes because I think they are fun when I'm bored, lol. Other than that though, I really don't know why everyone likes Facebook so much better? I've heard some people say that it's good to use it to find old classmates, which is true but you can do the same on myspace!

Maybe someone can explain it to me?? Which do YOU prefer, Myspace or Facebook?

Here are links to my personal pages. Feel free to add me but please leave me a note telling me that you got it from my blog. I normally look at people's pages when they request me and if I don't think we have much in common I may not add you! Sorry.

IMO, Facebook, is easier to use. Myspace pages load slower and most are so disorganized it's hard to find anything and god forbid you land on a page loaded with apps..

If you're looking for social networking Facebook offers ease of use, reliability, clean design.

I use my blog/s to have a place for pics, opinion, and personal design. Facebook is for social networking and it works fine for me.

I have to disagree with the reliability.. I have a lot of probs with facebook and have heard a lot of others complain on their page about the same thing! It always seems to have some kind of error or working very slowly. I do know what u mean though about when people have tons of apps on their myspace page. It's very annoying and slows everything down! I guess their are good and bad to both sites!

Myspace is much more fun in my opinion. I just don't click with Facebook...
