I’m not exactly a huge follower of them-there new-fangled ‘social’ websites (ha! I’m so old) but I have had a profile at MySpace for a while, just to keep in touch with some friends from high school and college. Earlier this week, a college friend emailed me a request to sign up for Facebook (which I’d never even visited before) so I clicked the link and signed up.
I just have to ask: WHY is MySpace so much more popular?!? Facebook is so much… less ugly. Ninety-five percent of the profiles I view at MySpace give me a headache with all the blinking and weird fonts and horrible colors (here comes the Design Snob in me!) Facebook isn’t as customizable.. but really, does it matter?
Either way, I prefer my own space here, but I like the two sites for being able to find old friends and classmates. When I find someone I haven’t thought about in years, it’s like finding a little prize! But really… I think MySpace needs to work to de-uglify their whole site. heh.
