MySpace versus Facebook

A new study found some interesting facts about the differences between users of MySpace and Facebook.
I haven’t really considered this element when using either to profile people, but it worth taking a look at.

    I was a regular MySpace user (or as the kids say, a “MySpace whore”) before, during, and a little bit after the election.

    I turned my personal MySpace into my campaign MySpace, basically.

    I found out, though, that although MySpace is an effective tool for promoting things – and I’ll definitely get another account in 2011 if MySpace is still en vogue – it actually didn’t impress me a lot for social networking.

    Sure, there were cool people in the area and around the globe I met because they saw my profile and interests but running my own blog/website and having a MySpace was just too much. I find people are now using MySpace as an easy “out” as to not call or e-mail someone…and people say “Don’t you have a MySpace?” as an out for getting to know someone – instead of asking about them.

    I think MySpace is cool if you’re maybe 18-25..but it just ended up causing too many problems in my life (semi-jealous girlfriend + having a MySpace with 3000 people on it = not a good idea) so I got rid of it.

    It’s easier just to have my website. I don’t have to worry about who “friended” me or “defriended” me. I can track whose reading via Google Analytics. It’s all much simpler and less of a hassle.

    Plus, my website doesn’t freeze my computer constantly or have login problems 40 times a day like MySpace does.
