Myspace and Facbook?
26 Mar 08
I think that Facebook is more user friendly than myspace, and that they have a lot of similarities. I know that it is technically possible to set up an account on myspace and add songs to it as a musician and I think you can even sell your own songs or music on myspace. I'm not sure how this is done, but it sounds like a good concept if it is possible. A lot of people I know in the UK are addicted to Facebook, and even those who used to mainly use myspace have switched to Facebook. I havn't used myspace that much, but I like the applications on Facebook like the games and the applications that ask you questions and match you to which of your friends you have things in common with. I might have another try at myspace and try to figure out if I can set up a musician account and add songs. I would prefer myspace if I could work out how to use it, lol.

MySpace, which launched January 1 2004, is a popular social networking site that lets friends share, message and stay connected. The site lets you browse profiles, blog, email and join groups. MySpace also has videos, music and classifieds. Music artists can add friends, stream singles, and sell music, a concoction that has led to extremely viral success for artists such as Lily Allen and M.I.A. Rupert Murdoch-helmed News Corp. acquired MySpace in June 2005 under its interactive business unit Fox Interactive Media based out of Los Angeles. Fox Interactive Media’s sole purpose is to build a dynamic portfolio of digital properties for News Corp. providing them better online reach for their other divisions. FIM president Ross Levinsohn wants FIM to “become one of the most exciting and innovative destinations on the Web.” On February 4th, 2004 Mark Zuckerberg launched The Facebook, a social network that was at the time exclusively for Harvard students. It was a huge hit: in 2 weeks, half of the student body at Harvard had signed up. Other schools in the Boston area began demanding a Facebook network. Zuckerberg immediately recruited his friends Dustin Moskowitz and Chris Hughes to help build Facebook, and within four months, Facebook added 30 more college networks. The original idea for the term Facebook came from Zuckerberg’s high school (Phillips Exeter Academy). The Exeter Face Book was passed around to every student as a way for students to get to know their classmates for the following year. It was a physical paper book until Zuckerberg brought it to the internet.

They both have their ups and downs. Facebook is adding too many dumb applications. by this I mean thing you can add to your profile, like programs for your profile. For example they have applications in which you can become a vampire or a pirate and if you become one you send a request to all of your friends to become one. I don't want to be a pirate!!! Haha. Also, there are some cool applications too. With myspace, you can customize your profile more, and make it look way cool. Also with myspace you get a lot of spam, not good. so I mean each have good and bad things. I started with myspace, and now I have both, but I still think I prefer myspace.
