Okay please bear with me here, and please don’t try to find me to slap me either. I have really good reasons for having a Myspace! 1) It’s close to my only communication with my teenage nieces. 2) I have gotten in touch with several old friends. 3) that’s it…can’t think of any others. I’m somewhat new to this game, the whole Internet thing was non existent in my life until June of 08. So when I got one, all my sisters and nieces were telling me that I just have to have a Myspace. So I made one.
It was fun in the beginning. I got in touch with a lot of old friends and it has been instrumental in having a close relationship with my nieces.The more I’m on there, the more I see that all it really is, is a popularity contest. How many friends can I get? Or for their “status” they make back handed remarks that are just childish.
If you have no idea what I’m talking about consider yourself lucky! It’s almost like high school all over again. It’s ridicules! I really don’t want a Myspace anymore. I have to tell my nieces that we need to find another way to remain close. I do have a Facebook, which I really enjoy for several reasons. Of course my nieces are like, “OMG no way!” or “Facebook sucks,” you know typical teenage talk! My oldest niece, 19, is on Facebook but she’s the only one. It’s much different than Myspace. You can’t decorate it with fun stuff or anything, well actually I think you can but you have to pay for it. It’s all about staying in contact with GOOD friends, chatting back and forth, sharing pictures of family, play games together. I haven’t came across any “drama” or negativity yet! Myspace is full of it! The entire cyber~atmosphere over at Facebook is so different. Most of the friends I talk to the most, have Facebook as well as Myspace and most don’t have Myspace at all. So keeping Myspace is kinda pointless and I may even feel a little liberated after deleting it!!
How many of you have either or Facebook or Myspace? I’m betting most either have Facebook or nothing. I won’t stop the Facebook, it really is a great way to stay in touch with old friends and family. I get to see pictures of them that I otherwise wouldn’t be able to see. So *ding ding* Facebook wins!! What’s your take on all this?
