Why Myspace sucks ass, and i now have the freedom to say that!

Social networking sites come and go. Facebook may be the next victim, but currently i'm quite satisfied with Facebook. Ever since i started joining the social networking bandwagon with Friendster in 2003, it changed the way i view the Internet forever. I became addicted to Friendster, because of how it's more interactive than ICQ.

Then Myspace arrived. As i started my Cempaka years at Form 2, i've decided to check upon Myspace, because morons like fellow classmate Aina Syahirah told me to. Upon signing up on Myspace, i've realised that i've joined a site that will give me eyesores for the next 3 years.

I started using Myspace due to the hype that surrounds it. Unlike Friendster, you can add "things" into your profile. And by things i meant by crappy pop music, asinine backgrounds, lame music videos and torturous CSS programs. And as a result, these "things" have slowed down my computer's hard drive & Internet bandwidth. Therefore, i've decided to stay loyal with Friendster, because atleast Friendster is more simple and faster than Myspace.

But i still kept my Myspace profile. Why? Because i usually access alot of musicians through Myspace. But as time goes by, the Myspace experience will bore me to death like a bad Nicolas Cage movie. While i have 300+ friends on Friendster, i only have 53 friends on Myspace, and that's because i'm too lazy to surf on Myspace. And it gets worse with the recent security incodents, bad press (tonight at 11, myspace dangers) targering paranoid parents, spam background , teenage following, and theories about being the primary traffic source of YouTube. These creepy stories kept me turned off by Myspace.

And it gets sadder for Friendster too. They are trying too hard to compete against Myspace, that they are copying everything Myspace has done by adding CSS options, and it gets me more pissed off on Friendster. It's kinda sad that your favourite networking site is trying to be the networking you loate all day long.

And let's not forget the Myspace Angle. Douchebags and Bitches who pose on their profiles looking like complete dicks of themselves. I don't have the looks for a Myspace Angle, and neither 70% of Myspace users. But these 70% of users are the ones who do the angle, and i always cringe when i look at them. If i want to pose myself on a Myspace profile, i'll just stick to a photoshop of Rooney sucking Ronaldo's dick.

And when 2008 arrived, came Facebook. While Myspace is still suffering from problems, and Friendster has totally become a 100% Myspace wannabe, i've decided to switch to Facebook. And thank god i've did the right decision, because Facebook is what i've dreamt of: simple & non-pretentious. No useless CSS bacgrounds, no annoying music players & no crappy profile photos. I'm happy with Facebook, for now. While Myspace is losing popularity and is now becoming more corporate, let's hope that the beloved Facebook won't suffer the same fate for years to come.

And if you're still using Myspace, then may God save your soul.
