I would also question the motives of any adult on myspace.. hopefully we don't see you in the latest police sting. Actually, hopefully we DO see you in the next police sting
Are you serious? You're suggesting that since I have myspace my intentions aren't pure?

I talk to my mom on Myspace!

I have a myspace page (since like 2005!) and I have been faaarrr to lazy to catch onto the facebook craze. I can only do one social networking site at a time.

I tried out Myspace and found it less user friendly and more annoying than Facebook, which is the only social networking sight I use (and that not often at all). Sooner or later I'll step off the lazy train and bother truly setting up LinkedIn.

Just pointing out the big giant elephant in the room.. I'm sure you'd agree there's no shortage of pervs looking for little kids on myspace, right?
If I talked to my mom, it would be on the phone or via e-mail and would you put your myspace on a business card? I'm sure that would lose you at least almost all credibility right from the git go, or at least that's what would happen where I work. I'm sure it's more acceptable in the entertainment industry and maybe a small business advertising to teens/young adults.

BTW, I do know there is no shortage of people that appreciate a lot of things people put on their myspace and FB's, though. Especially someone trying to collect personal information. It's almost scary what a lot of people (especially kids) will put on theirs. I'm glad mine are grown and I don't have to worry about that.

OK, care to post up some evidence that supports that claim? As a matter of fact, this article from two months ago states otherwise...

Quote:
The average MySpace user spends 266 minutes (4.4 hours) on the site every month—a +15% increase over last month and a +31% increase year over year. January is the highest level of minutes-per-visitor MySpace has ever seen. Page views on MySpace have reached an all time high of 44 billion—more than double that of the company’s nearest competitor.
MySpace has had its issues, but with well over 100,000,000 (the forum surpassed that number on August 6, 2006) I don't see it going away soon. It may have to "evolve" a little to survive, but I would bet on it surviving!

Cheers! M2

Actually I use Myspace as an online business card, and no I don't have is on my business cards - I have my website.

I talk to my mom on there because my email if far more cluttered with inquiries and quote requests, communications from customers, etc.

Why not tap into a 100,000,000 member community? A couple news reports of sickos is not going to dissuade me. Although Myspace was targeted by the media it is by no means the only place wierdos lurk. On my personal page I have over 300 real life friends and acquaintances I've been keeping up with over the years. Are we all (being over your age limit) sickos?

I hate to beat a dead horse, but I've got to see you admit that your generalization was way out of bounds - especially with the implication that since I am over your age limit I must have bad intentions.

My address is myspace.com/landscapesatxdotcom

Feel free to add me.

Facebook Hockey Sticks, MySpace Languishes (2009 article)

Both are great sites but it seems like you get a lot of kids on there and FB is more for adults and college students.

Was that your intention for starting this thread? To spread your online business card? I have no problems with sharing knowledge, but it seems lately that all of your posts have been to share your business. Which would normally be fine, but CD frowns upon advertising, and indirect advertising, and even if you aren't advertising and appear to.

I'm surprised that no one has compared the average myspace page of today with your average geocities or tripod page circa 1998...

Edit: myspace pages need more of the animated construction worker with the caption "This page under construction" and "Best viewed with Netscape 4.0" gifs.
