MySpace vs. Facebook

Updated on October 30, 2012

Most people who are active on social networking sites have a profile on both MySpace and Facebook. However, despite being on both sites, each user almost always has a preference for one site over the other. That's due to the fact that there are some significant differences between the two networking sites and the people who are most active on them. Neither one is necessarily better than the other but any one individual might consider one "better" in comparison because of the different uses for each of the sites. Here's a closer look at those differences:

User Demographic:

There's been an interesting shift in who uses the sites. MySpace began with a big preference for teenagers whereas Facebook was designed specifically for college students. (When it first started, you even needed a college email address to sign up with Facebook.) As the two sites have grown up, their users have changed. These days, teens may be on either site. And college students turn up on both of them as well.

Where the real differences lie now is in the professionals who are networking on the sites. Facebook has a number of different professionals who are on the site for networking and job hunting. Head hunters hang around to find people who might be right for certain jobs. If you're a career professional in the computer or business fields, Facebook is more your game. That's not to say that there aren't professionals on MySpace. However, they tend to be involved in more creative careers. Musicians, comedians and fashion designers are easy to find on MySpace.


Facebook has MySpace beat hands down for the number of applications that you can use on the site. In fact, new applications are being designed on a regular basis for Facebook, many of which assist with the professional networking that takes place on the site. If you're interested in the cutting edge ways that you can communicate with people (such as using Click-to-Call widgets to contact Facebook friends via voice communication) then Facebook is your place. If all of those applications are too confusing for you, you might want to stick with MySpace.


Despite the fact that there are plenty of applications for Facebook, the types of designs that you can have on your own profile page are somewhat limited. Most Facebook pages look basically the same at a first glance. In contrast, it's possible to really alter your MySpace profile so that it looks completely unique. People who want to show off their creative tendencies are likely to find that MySpace makes that a little bit easier to do.


Both MySpace and Facebook offer users the opportunity to create and join groups on the site. This can be a way to keep everyone from an old group (such as a college sorority) together on the site. It can also be a way to meet new people with the same interests as you. There are a range of different groups on each of the sites so which site you like better might depend on the ease with which you find a group on the site that you're most active on.

In general, many people say that they prefer the MySpace groups. This is due to the fact that the groups are very easy to find on the site. There is a page available which shows which groups there are under different categories. It also shows how many members are active in those groups. On the other hand, Facebook will tell you which groups were recently joined by your friends so you can get some hints as to which groups you might like because of that feature. In this category, it really depends on your own interests and your preference between the appearance of the group layout on MySpace as compared to Facebook.


Spam doesn't seem to be a problem on Facebook whereas it can be quite a headache on MySpace. People hack MySpace profiles and send viruses to their friends on the site. MySpace users check their messages and find beautiful sexy girls there who want them to "come check out pics on this others site" (a site that is adult-only and needs to be paid for). If you don't want to deal with spam, Facebook is currently the place for you.

In the news

Despite the problems with spam, MySpace doesn't get too much negative news attention. The one area that it does get bad media is in the risk that it poses to the underage users on the site. (We've all heard the story of the teenage girl who met a boy on MySpace and met in public only to find out it was really an old man who wanted to do her harm.) However, this can happen on any social networking site. Most users of MySpace don't find this to be a problem assuming that they use common sense on the site.

In contrast, Facebook has recently gotten some negative publicity from users. There was a debacle recently in which advertising on the site changed and users were unhappy with the way that it happened. Some people were finding that their shopping preferences were being shown to their online friends, an issue which made them feel that their privacy was violated. As a result, many people who once really supported Facebook started moving over to sites such as MySpace.


Ultimately, which social networking site you prefer really depends on what you like in a site. In addition to MySpace and Facebook, there are numerous other social networking sites that you can use to meet new people and to stay in touch with old friends. Each of these serves its own niche group (for example, there is Linked In for professionals). What is important to remember is that the popularity of each of these sites is going to wax and wane over time. If you're just looking to get on the latest trend, you'll have to flitter from site to site. But if you want to really develop connections on the sites, find the one that has an interface you're most comfortable with using and start getting to know people there!

    I use BranchOut for professional networking on FB. It’s nice to have an app that can make a select portion of your profile available as another tool to use for networking while still keeping the more personal and social portions of he profile private.

    facebook is garbage.

    It is incomprabaly weak in CREATIVITY/abiliyy to modify profile.

    I can twist & edit my MySpace profile as I please, especially music & graphics andyet I get business function also satified, I even use @myspace email address.

    But facebook is too dull.

    If I want dull 100% business Social/Networking website, I use LinkedIn; if I want dual entertainment+busienss I use MySpace. F Facebook, people are sheep following herd, soon enough they will be leaving facebook as they did MySpace. fad followers.

    I just visited my old MySpace page and yes it is still there. The problem is that MySpace is very slow and painful to navigate. Can't believe the allowed it to get that far away from them. I guess they just could not respond the Facebook take over. Too bad. They are for sure pioneers in the social media aspect.

    Given that the Myspace social network is older than Facebook, it can be assumed that it has more users. However, in recent years, Facebook became more popular, and users will go for it! It seems to me that in the future network MySpace will simply disappear! Thanks for the interesting article!

    I like facebook and understand for the most part how to use it, but what would really convince me to use it more is if it was more customizable kinda like how myspace was. If that were the case Facebook would definetly be the dominant social netowrk, In a nutshell Facebook + MySpace Customization= Ultimate Social Netowrk

    I started out on MySpace. Then I joined fib. I have left face book twice. I returned only to be frustrated with it once again. For some reason, it keeps locking me out. I try and use a password that is easy to remember. Face book for some reason doesn't accept my passwords. I never had this problem on MySpace. Really good information here. I was thinking, too bad you can't start up a social network that offers better quality than either of the two. I enjoy your writing!

  • profile image

    Stacie 7 years ago

    I use both, and I think Myspace is way better than Facebook. The only reason I have Facebook is because most of my friends and family are on here and don't use Myspace anymore. Here are the reasons why Myspace is better than Facebook:

    -You can decorate your profile

    -You can add music to your profile

    -The people on Myspace (yes, there are still some people that use Myspace) aren't assholes and don't delete you for dumb reasons. Like, because they don't like your status. I mean seriously. If you don't like what I write, then don't fucking read it. Freedom of speech, remember?

    -You can post bulletins on Myspace

    -Everyone's profile looks the same on Facebook

    -You can add different quotes and stuff to your Myspace profile to express yourself

    -It's easier to blog

    -You can search for people on Myspace without the hassle of having to sign in

    I have an account on both. I used to like MySpace better with it's music, videos and color but they changed it a while back and many of my friends left and went to facebook so I moved too. I still have a MySpace account but never log on anymore.

    MySpace messed up when they took the blog features off. That was my main reason for making a profile there.

    I've recently heard of a new site called Friendburst that some of my friends have tried to get me to join but I already have more than I can keep up with so I don't want to add another.

    Don't be fooled by all this social disease pollution.. Here is the bottom line.. Facebook's success is based on the basic human nature of curiosity and it will cannibalize itself once users figure out just how they are being used. It's a fantastic global social lab experiment and users are the lab mice..

    I have both a myspace and a facebook, I primarily went over to facebook though because more of my friends/family were on there(hardly ANY of them have a myspace unless they are in a band). Also, in my opinion myspace allows a little too much customization. Some ppl put so much stuff on their myspace that the page freezes or is just unreadable and impossible to navigate. facebook having one uniform layout, while boring, is much easier to navigate. Facebook focuses less on everyone being able to show how they are unique snowflake. It's strengths are just simply the bare bones of staying connected and social networking.

    I prefer MySpace over Facebook, mainly because I can remain somewhat anonymous on MySpace. I really don't want my current or prospective employer seeing everything I post about political issues or every band I like or whatever silly stuff I might be into at the moment. With MySpace I can keep that all private and yet still let my friends and family keep in touch with me. I'm free to be myself on MySpace and be creative and fun. I only use Facebook for business networking purposes, and it is boring compared to MySpace, so I rarely ever use it.

    Overall since getting Myspace, I realized most who use it are simply ones trying to fill a void in their life or are pedophiles. They will base popularity on how many Myspace friends they have even though they have never talked to these people face to face or even on Myspace themselves. They would also know if they were popular in real life, they'd know popular people don't have the most friends because they are only friends with their own kind. These people are also the ones who seek a relationship or online sex.

    When I got my Facebook thinking it was different, I found a lot of the same shit, that Myspace had. People who have friends on there, their friends will try and add you to build up their friends collection.

    The only semi decent social networks I found were Ning, LinkedIn and Twitter. And the only truly popular one of the 3 is Twitter. Because these sites are either harder to randomly add people or don't go have friends list just people who follow you, thus a lot avoid them. And I will say I had a Twitter account when it was still ranked 200,000+ overall.

    90% of social network sites that are popular have some way to randomly add friends whether through just searching and adding, through their friends, friends list or through the "you might know" type. If they don't have any of the options and require the person to actually know you, the social network is destined to fail. After all desperate people seem to be the majority of the online world.

    Since finding all this shit out, I now only use Myspace to update my profile and for Facebook to update my profile and use it to sign into other sites. You will never find a site I'm on with a bunch of random people on my friends lists (and I hide my friends list whenever possible because it's no one's business to know who my friends are.) and if I don't know you and you try and add me, you will be instantly rejected.
