Did you get ahold of any long lost friends on myspace?

I know when you are in school, you always think you will keep in contact with 'certain' people. Well, years after you graduate, you lose contact with more and more people. And to actually get on myspace now, you can look up people you haven't talked to in years and find out where their life has led them. Have any of you found a friend you somehow lost contact with on myspace?

The only people I found were my classmates which yeah I was kinda excited to find out where the road has led them. Thats one good thing about myspace.

That's horrible. Sometimes, those friends are just better not being reconnected to! It's nice to just keep the memories you have had of them, and leave it at that. But, there are alot of people out there that things didn't go downhill so much for, and it is nice to get back in touch with them. I do overall love myspace...

True... there are still some people out there that maybe I'd like to reconnect with. I just can't think of who they are. Pretty much anyone I knew who I wanted to continue to know, I'm still in touch with. Except for a few people in middle school. That one girl I looked further into her page and saw that she's got 3 kids. The oldest looks about 6. Wow! I feel sorry for her kids, she looks like a horrible parent from the stuff she posts there. :(

That's awesome! I love myspace too. I constantly check 'my school' to keep up with the new people from my school that get on, and have found many friends like that. I also graduated in 1996. So, it has been a long time since I even spoke to alot of the people.

i love myspace too. after i stayed back in my 9th grade year, and moved away from my school district, i lost contact with a lot of my friends. because of myspace, ive found 2 of my old best friends, some other close friends from junior high, cousins i havent talked to in years, i can stay in contact with my brother and sister-in-law easier, ive found friends i lost when they moved to other school districts, plus it helps me stay in contact with everyone! myspace is a great thing, you just need to use it wisely!

I haven't found any friends from a very long time ago, but I've found some from high school on there and found out that they got married and stuff. I really didn't know all that many people throughout school that I could even remember the names of to search for them.

Well, there is a way to just search the school, and from there you can find some of them. I know, I have a hard time remembering the names of alot of people too, but, when I search the school, I can usually pick them out!

I've found that that only goes back to high school though generally. I've gone through the list of people from my high school and saw a few people. No one I cared to talk to though.

I found an old neighbor from when I was like 6 or 7 years old. They moved away after that and I often thought of them and wondered where they were in their lives. I also found other neighbors from when I was 14 that I NEVER thought I would hear from or see again. Myspace is wonderful for things like that, but kinda defeats the purpose of 10 year high school reunions and stuff. I guess its a toss up on whether thats a good thing or a bad thing. Depends on the person.

Well, I know we had our ten year reunion not so long ago, and I just had no interest in going. Yeah, I know you have the opportunity of seeing friends there that you haven't seen for awhile, but, I just didn't want to go. I met up with people over myspace that didn't go either. So, maybe it doesn't hurt the chances of people going to the reunions, but, helps friends get back in touch.

I have. Actually she found me. I've had myspace for about a year now. I got it because a friend back home had it and made me get so we could keep in contact after I moved. Then suddenly a week or so ago I get a PM from an old friend from high school. I haven't seen her since graduation and haven't talked to her in about 5 years (we used to chat in e-mails). It has been so much fun chatting with her because we were pretty good friends in high school. I met her the first day of freshman year and we had one class together every single year.

thats amazing how these social networking sites can help. If someone can really find their lost friends via these sites that would be really cool.

I have. I found my first love again. We were in grade school when we met and had lost touch over the years after high school. I am now talking to him again and you never know what might happen next.

I have reconnected with lots of people on myspace, including old coworkers and high school friends. It fun, and kinda weird, to catch up with these people since so much has changed in out respective lives. The coolest catch up was with a co-worker, who found me 10 years after I worked with him! We definitly had some catching up to do!

I lived in the same town for 26 years. I've been away from my hometown just over 12 years now. I kept in touch with a couple of friends from home this whole time. But about 5 years ago I joined Classmates.com, and was able to reconnect with a few hundred of my old classmates. And now with MySpace, I have found a few more. With my high school reunion coming up this summer, I'm very glad to have been in touch with these people. I'm excited about seeing them again. We are scattered all over the world.

I actually have a lot of my classmates on myspace. One of the girls has been my friend since kindergarten. I know everyone on my friends list personally, except for Dane Cook. I'd like to know him personally though!
