I originally joined mysapace to stay in touch with out of state friends...but it seems like now most of them don't post anything or even return my messages if I send them something...it's boring...I used to check the site everyday...now its maybe once every couple of weeks...i spend a lot more time on mylot because at least on here it seems people have a pulse and actually enjoy communication... what about you? do you have a myspace page?are you bored with it? or do i just need to find some new friends on there?

Hi Vera, I completely agree with you. I have been on myspace for under 2 years I think. I still like adding all the holiday stuff to my page and reading the bulletins. I have close to 200 friends on there, so there is enough to keep me busy, but lately, I pretty much just check my messages, look at my comments, and it doesn't take very long. This I've found to be fun, but then it is new also. I like that they give you money to do something you like to do! If you would like to be friends on myspace or on here, I have sent a friend request. B

You know, if you have to rely on the internet to have an intertesting, fun life than there is something wrong there. Find things in real life that will make you happy. Find a hobby, go out with your friends. This all gets old and boring after awhile and it's time consuming. What are you doing on a nice day? Sitting on the computer in a little dark room. I know some people that spend 8 hours or more on their PC's, they even eat at them. I did that when I first was introudced to the internet, in fact, it became an addiction. Now, I only come on here in the morning and the odd time at night.

Are you familiar with Facebook? it is gaining popularity as an alternative to myspace, and I like it a lot better, as far as staying in touch with friends goes! It's not as glamorous but it serves it's purpose! Of course, I like myLot, there are a lot of friends on here I communicate with, and also on Yahoo 360, I have other friends I communicate with also!

It's weird, but I don't even feel the need for a replacement for myspace...i am pretty busy online with mylot and creating my website...maybe i am becoming an online hermit, lol...

I too am bored with myspace. I used to visit it on a regular basis, almost everyday, but as I don't find the same excitement on there as I do on here, I have kind of given up on it. Though I wouldn't delete my page as I wouldn't want to lose touch with any of the friends I do have on there. Plus it's free, so I have no real reason to delete it. :P

I think this is the only reason I keep it also...I would not have any connection to these friends otherwise...most of them are high school/college buddies for me, though a few others...and like you said it is free, so no harm done :)

We on myLot are the pulse of the globe! I love it! Am I the only one in the universe who has never even been to MySpace? Because of the PTW programs partnering with them, I have finally broken down and joined FaceBook, but it is hard for me to force myself to go over there. A friend here on myLot told me about something called BluBet, though, and that place is starting to get fun. People post questions such as "Which is better, Great Wealth or High Intelligence?" and then everyone votes and the winners get points from the losers. At first we didn't know what the points were good for, but it looks like they will be exchanging them for cool prizes. So far I only have 2 "friends" there, but it is pretty new.

blubet sounds pretty neat. do you have a referral link? i will check it out - pm me with it if you have one! Otherwise I'll go check it out on my own! don't worry, you are missing nothing on myspace...i don't have a facebook account...people have told me they like myspace better, so I don't have too high of motivation to get on there, lol

I have a myspace page for the same reason. I have family and friends that live out of state. They write when they can. In the beginning is ok, pretty busy so to speak. But seems like everyone has slacked, not sure if its because they are busy or because they are bored with it too. I check it everyday but thats just about it, I check it. I agree at least here people are responding. Maybe your friends will get back on there again. Good luck with it.

It would be mildly exciting if any of them ever even posted anything...i see they update things once in awhile, but it doesn't seem like any of them do anything...i wrote a bulletin recently with 73 friends only 1 commented on it! I'm not that boring am I?? I hope not!

I feel the same way about mySpace. There isn't much going on in there. Usually if I go there, I just pull my page up to listen to music. And even when people do send me a message it's just to stop by and say Hi. What great communication skills! LOL

Yes I have a Myspace page but I don't go on there anymore. I actually do not like Myspace at all anymore. I don't know why, I just stopped liking it and now I can't figure out why I even liked it in the first place and why my friends and family are so hooked on it. I use Mylot and Yuwie now. The difference between Myspace and Yuwie is that Yuwie pays you to do what you used to do on Myspace. :)

it seems everybody is into yuwie...i signed up, and that's about it. i was too bored with it also!! I think I must like the interaction & discussions here as opposed to the stuff on myspace...

the people who call get forwarded to my phone...if i don't recognize the number, i don't answer it...usually it gets "answered" by my voice mail, and 99% of the time they don't leave messages...I just requested my payout there for $15...I am already up to $5.25 again...I had 6 calls yesterday I never even knew came...so it is pretty nice!!

I have a myspace page and I got bored with it for the same reasons I have an over seas friend but we now e-mail each other instead of using myspace to send messages through. I have an yuwie account that I love because you make money on there at the end of each month it posts to your account than when you make enough you can claim it through your paypal account. I love mylot and yuwie a whole lot more. If you would like to sign up at yuwie let me know and add me to mylot so I can send you my ref. link.

Myspace is incredibly boring to me now. I didn't think a site like that would ever play out. I think it is because there is so much competition and the moderators have really let the site go. I still go on there every day to see if my nieces and nephews have posted any new pictures and things like that. But I was never really able to develop any friendships one there. After I found Mylot, I stopped trying.

Yeah, it is out of control it seems sometimes...I still check certain things but there's not involvement like there is here! I feel like I know you better than half my friends on myspace who i've actually met in person, lol!

Hi, I don't have an account on myspace but I do own a Hyves account (sort of the dutch variant of myspace). I got bored using it too because people only use it to show of how good they are. Also they don't communicate that much. And if they want to communicate they use MSN. As for myLot I guess most people enjoy discussing subject (and some just like earning some money). With kind regards, MOnline

I just redeem $20 and it's up to $4.25. I am loving it. I add there banner to my site. I found into at a company that just started one of my friends do it. I sign up to see all the free stuff. How long have you known about brring. I wish I know long time ago. I am sharing the info with all. Some do sign up and some just act crazy. Like they could not use the extra change. I went into all my account and change my number. When people call me and its not my brring # I ask them to call back on brring before I talk to them. This help pay for company my friend a member of. I will have to look up my info to give it to you. You get a free tour. I wrote down all the free things I wanted but each day more free info was added so I said I will paid the $9.95 for a couple of months before I cancel subscription. Every time I get on I say I want to cancel they put some thing that love. I can get my credit score for free without signing up for anything or paying anything. I told my friend he will need to give me his password and let me use his if I cancel. But the good news is I have share all thefree stuff I found with all even thou I am payig cause brring helps pay for it. But will start to use it to pay for my site.
