facebook will crash and burn just like myspace. cant wait


It won't be long. The number of inactive users is growing rapidly. It's like anything else. Something new and exciting trumps the old and tired most of the time.

Is the number of inactive members growing in proportion to the number of new accounts? It won't go away until middle class suburbia has a replacement form of social media. Google+ isn't it.

FB was so much better when you had to have a college email to join. Basically just big universities no HS or CC people.

WVU got it back in 2004 i think it was the 2nd wave, b/c i had friends at UVA who had it the year before.

So I can assume FB = Mall of La, while Myspace = cortena.

Myspace would freeze your computer after opening some pages with so much custom junk on it. Bump that shite.

Yeah, Facebook started out with upper crust college kids. The kind of people that have money, and that marketers want. MySpace was a bunch of broke people. Facebook was way more legitimate as a business tool because of its clientele of college kids and better even, recent college grade.



If it was the fact of being a business tool that made fb overtake Myspace, then Linkedin should be kicking fb's ass. Facebook was designed for college kids while Linkedin was designed for business professionals. My company made all of us join Linkedin about a year ago. I've yet to find it useful for anything other than adding about a dozen or so useless emails to my inbox on a daily basis.

Facebook is good for keeping up with family, etc.

The "I need 1million like to get a puppy" is getting a little annoying

This, and you had to turn your speakers off on the computer to prevent ear cancer from music people put on their profile.

Myspace is a time capsule. Interesting thing is that people on FB are all about privacy nowadays, but don't realize that all of their scandalous photos and deviant behavior on myspace are frozen in time and readily accessible with simple searches.

It's simplicity. Which ironically, it's getting farther and farther away from. Facebook is slowly evolving into Myspace.

Myspace became horrible when they started letting people customize their page (facebook appears to be following suit now)
