Some of you have Myspace but who got you there in the 1st place? For me, it was one of my own friends from High School who had it. I ended up talking to him on AIM and I saw his profile and it really had been a blessing because now I found not only friends from High School but also family members I haven't seen in years. I found Cousins mainly and a couple Aunts. It's been to me a good tool for that. If nothing else, that's what I think the purpose of it was for. Who referred you to Myspace and were you able to find any friends you haven't either seen in years or relatives as well? I think it does serve well. Only thing I'm trying to do next is build a strong network. Once in a while I see classified ads out there that might be interesting. Whether or not, you get the job is another story. But that's just me.

i was referred by my sister. my family is in california. i'm in ohio. i can keep in touch with my members so much easier and not have to worry about the time difference. and unlike e-mail, you choose who can send you messages.

You're from Ohio? So am I. Thanks for your response. I agree there. That's one thing I like about technology. It's made it much easier to keep contact. I got family members in other parts of the Nation and it has been a great tool to help me keep contact.

There was a girl that I saw on another website that I'm a member of that had a link to her MySpace account. I wanted to look at her pictures, but it said that I had to be a member first, I've been a member ever since then and made everyone that I know join it too.

That's interesting. It's always interesting to learn how people find it in the 1st place. How often do you check it? Me, I check whenever possible and also to see if I got any new comments on my page. That's about all I do anymore.

I know what you mean. Sometimes I'm just on for a second and that's about it. I'm usually not on it for very long. I just browse and that's about it. Just to see if I got anything new. Thanks for the response by the way. I haven't been due to other things happening like some extra work.

one of my friends i was talking to online, she had moved to south carolina a few years before, told me about it. this was back in 2003, when it was VERY new. there were only a few hundred people. now everyone seems to have a myspace. but it's great. a great way for networking and finding old friends.

Oh wow. I agree right there. It's good to help you find some new friends. Anything that can help you find some your old classmates or anything like that is a major plus in my book. Thanks for the response.

My two daughters have been on Myspace for awhile now. They got me into it. I have found people I went to school with. People who share the same interests as me. I'm able to talk to my sister who, because she lives in another state, I haven't talked to for awhile.
