Don't get me wrong, I'm a member of MySpace and Facebook and really think those sites are very good in keeping contact with friends. But I mean, now I think they may have gone a little too far...user posted image
Dude, what next? MySpace credit cards?

It's a good way of marketing. That's probably why a lot of scene/emo kids have it; they read the address of those laces when they were kicking the c*nts to death.

Facebook: A Place For Office Drones.

Saying that, I have Facebook, but it's an independent one, so I'm not part of a college or school or workplace.

I remember when Facebook was strictly for the use of school students. Now, it's practically become another MySpace.

Apparently, that's only true for under 18s. When you're 18 (or say you are at least) you can get a Facebook account that isn't part of a group.

Well, I have a Myspace, but no Facebook, and its' true. I ALWAYS have some sort of Myspace tab open, whether it's listening to music, or if it's my messages, or my own profile, even.
The world's not too DEPENDANT on it, and I admit, Myspace is useful, but it's not a necessity.
Sort of like mobile phones, nowadays.

Indeed.
Most of my school goes on Myspace, and I say there's maybe five emo kids at most in my school. It's not too much of a "trend" in Michigan yet to be emo and sh*t.

lol that goes little too far... But in Finland everyone goes to "irc-gallery". It costs 1 euro to register and if you want to edit your profile it costs 1 euro for month. lol?

There's nothing wrong with Bebo, MySpace an Facebook. If you're not social enough to get any use out of them, unlucky.

Yeah, Youtube, Myspace, and such. They exist 'cuz they offer huge marketing opportunities. Companies are making a huge revenue from it by placing ads.

Some people love MySpace. Younger kids that have a lot of friends on there and don't go to message boards. MySpace, for those people, is like their GTAF. They don't go to gaming message boards so they go to profile sites with all their friends.

Exactly, especially now since Fox now owns MySpace.

I actually don't run into many emo people there anymore. It got better, but that doesn't mean that you won't have a seizure trying to read their black text on a dark animated gif flashing background image...

I have friends all over the country, and I can't always call them, because I don't have their number, or what not. So I like to keep in touch with them on Myspace. But I think it's retarded to communicate with people you see everyday using these products.

I wouldn't mind Myspace, if it wasn't for the fact that most emo's i meet worship it as some kind of god.

Not been a smart arse or anything, but it really is amazing the way attitudes have changed towards MySpace. I remember the first topic about it here on GTAF a couple of years ago, and it was a large majority of people outright caining it, with a small minority saying they used it, and then getting flamed for such admittances.

That's not to say I wasn't one of the haters, but I have a profile now, and get great use out of it.

Guess that's just how the cookie crumbles.

I've stopped using MySpace entirely and only use Facebook. Myspace is basically the same thing but people are harder to find, and the pages are f*cking hideous more often than not. At least on Facebook you don't ever have to worry that someone's profile will be so ugly it kills your browser.

It's great that they're making myspace clothing, so that I know exactly who to beat the sh*t out of in public.

Haha, I didn't think of it that way. I agree it's a poor decision to make clothing.

Ya know, I was thinking just that.

I remember when that happened, MySpace users were flamed to pieces a couple of years ago here.

Also....even though I have a MySpace account I would never be caught with a MySpace shirt, hat, and sure as hell not shoestrings.

I have a myspace. It's a great way to keep in touch with old friends as I am sure without myspace I would of never seen any of my friends from my old school again. I remember when I first got myspace one of my old friends added me and then from his profile I added all the rest and now I'm still tight with them all and see them quite regularly.

Oh and what, is there going to be a myspace clothing range? Lol, wtf.
