Please tell me. Am I missing something? Because I just don't get it. I've been searching MySpace for online profiles of people I once knew or who knew me and I can't believe how many are on there!!!! Full names, half names, pictures, whatever. I am able to identify them somehow someway. That is pretty cool I have to admit. BUT I have absolutely no desire to do anything at all with mine though. I'm not sure if it's just me again but that whole thing seems pretty darn complicated to customize and I really don't feel like sticking all my information out there for just anybody with a myspace to peruse. What's with all the comments on the FIRST page you see and having to scroll waaaaaaay down to add a comment. Reading some of these it's like listening to half a conversation. "Hey Dude what's up?" "Yeah Saturday night. Let's do that." "You're so funny!" Drivin' me freakin' NUTS!!! Oh and one paragraph about the person is supposed to sum up their life. That's my wordy self talking. Oh and don't get me started on the one picture sums me up. Why is it all the pictures on there are so pretty? People we are NOT that pretty in real life. Their school search SUCKS. It always says "School not found." and then you have to go look it up by city and by golly there it is, just as you typed it.
The few people I was actually close to at some point and know currently who have profiles up there feel the same way about myspace in some form or another, still they have theirs up there for their friends. Maybe I just haven't jumped on the bandwagon yet. Can somebody out there explain to me the fun in it?
Or maybe I'm blog spoiled. My own personal page, no half ass conversations, no pretty pictures. Just me. Just the way I like it.
A little googling and here's a site that talks a little about a few things I didn't even cover, liked the herding instinct and the friends factor. Oh and the "1996 Internet called and it wants its cliches back." commenting on the bad graphics, font colors, and layouts. Love that line.
And this one just makes me laugh. Okay maybe I should just change the title of this post to the Myspace Hate post, but really that's not what it's intended to be... too much any way :) .
