My Space is good for traffic but I found people very rude out there. Facebook is more like a High School hangout joint (as Pgrundy pointed out) where everyone is nice but isn't really much of a help for traffic.
I have not really had many rude encounters on Myspace because all I really do on that site is post a blog talking about my writings. I would definitely not use the forum on Myspace, but my blog there does bring some traffic. I just do not update it very often, but that is okay by me.
I joined Facebook because all the promote-yer-writing sites said to do it, but sometimes I wish I hadn't. It's kind of annoying. I mean, I haven't really found a use for it. I publish all my articles to my Facebook page but it kind of reminds me of Junior High. And I hate all those dumb pretend plants and pretend snacks and pretend whatevers...geez. Don't people have anything to do?
If you check out Aroundtheway.com you'll find out that it has more features than myspace and facebook such as video chat, radio, virtual dressing room and more. Its alot more user friendly and easy to navigate
I mostly use Facebook for looking at photographs from friends and family, and play the odd game or two. And for highlighting my writings. I have a few applications on my site but I don't use most of them all that much.
i signed up for facebook a while ago and haven't had any activity. recently i signed up with myspace and find it to be more user-friendly.there are more options and it's easier to find people you may know...of course there's people who you don't want to know also LOL that's my opinion.
I prefer Myspace for my DJ Business and Facebook for my family and friends contact. I did a study and Facebook gets twice as many hits per day than Myspace does. This kind of surprised me. Nice topic to bring out SweetiePie.
I don't know Facebook, but I signed up for MySpace because writing sites say people should. I got there and didn't know what I was "supposed to be doing" once I did. I added a bunch of stuff to the page and pretty much let it rot for - like - a couple of years. It was funny (and kind of embarrassing) that there was, "You have no friends". I only know how to make friends naturally (even online). I don't know how to go looking for "friends" on something the like the whole world of MySpace. I don't even know how to be a "friend" under those circumstances.
Myspace seems to be best for music now, but not a lot else ... everything else that it does can be done on facebook now (other than the customizing thing). But when (and I'm sure it won't be long) Facebook lets people upload music like myspace does then myspace will completely die.
I am on facebook constantly, mainly to use facebook chat although fb chat is the biggest pile of rubbish. It tells me there are 7 people online when in fact there are 3 or 10. and it puts MOST people in alphabetical order but then seems to get confused and put people in the wrong places! Sometimes it doesnt work at all, sometimes it doesnt send my messages, sometimes it tells me someone is online when they are not. I am NOT impressed!!
Facebook will definitely be the leader in social networks, becaue they plan on connecting all of the web so each person on facebook can find everything they are looking for in one spot, Facebook will dominate myspace but probably on a different social setting.
I am currently writing and plan to write on somewhat polarizing topics, so I don't want to tell my Facebook friends when i write an article (I keep my politics closely guarded in this day and age). With that said,...
