MySpace: Social networking site, dating site, or another place to upload your photos?

August 11, 2008

Assuming people actually still be on MySpace, what is the main function for your usage? I can say I have 2 pages. One for me and one for my photos only. I only use the photos one since I take photos. I did meet one person off the site but… It just didn’t work out.

Now, as a social networking site, I’d assume it’s ok. It’s no Facebook but, Facebook is sucking wintergreen minty balls. If you overlook all the spam, and douchebags wanting to add you just to add someone, it’s ok. Hmm, spam and douchebags adding you? Sounds like Twitter.

As a dating site, I guess there’s some potential. I mean, if your goal is a hot chick you know you’ll never diddle then Godspeed. I must say, I’d rather use MySpace to date rather than meeting people face-to-face. At least I’ll know what I’m in for via MySpace unless they lied. But, who would lie on the internet?

MySpace also helps you meet Chris Hansen. Well, MySpace and AIM.
“Why don’t you have a seat right there…”

For photo storage, it works out for you if anything. No need to tag them and all the other taxing shit you’d do like on Flickr and Zooomr.

I know I overlooked their video feature but I don’t use it. It’s stupid.


Dear Google,

I will keep this letter short.
I learned from a FriendFeed post by Chris Pirillo about something you made called “Lively” in your Labs. I have not yet try it but here’s a helpful review: “I didn’t realize it was possible, but Google Lively is WORSE than Second Life. Like, astoundingly bad. Don’t try.“.
I ask you: why did you even bother? From your YouTube video, you seemed to figure out how to clone Yahoo’s Avatartown and IMVU, mix them together, and produce the digital liquid shit you made.
Please scrap that little project and PLEASE scrap Orkut. Don’t besmirch the Google name with that trash.
