Is it just me or do only bands use Myspace these days. It seems everyone I know has migrated over to Facebook. Is this true of everyone or is it just my circle of friends?

no, everyone uses Xanga now.
grok it.

My band uses myspace. But personally, I don't use social networking websites. I barely use my mobile phone.

MySpace gets a bad rap for the type of people that still use it. So, if you openly admit that you use MySpace, you will most likely get Butthurt by your friends.

Facebook has very few negative connotations to it.

facebook is a cluttered mess.
facebook doesn't have band profiles
I don't enjoy being asked to take stupid surveys or receive stupid flairs.
I loathe facebook IM, mainly because people I don't really associate with that I'm "friends" with always try to talk to me.

I have my reasons for staying with myspace.

same thing has happened with my friends...activity on Myspace has slowly migrated to Facebook. Now Myspace for me is just dead apart from band bulletins and the one or two friends who still use it.

Myspace was always lame, in my opinion. I had similar feelings about facebook but I got one anyway just to keep up with people since we all went to college. I don't use FB chat though, because it sucks, and I don't take stupid surveys and quizzes.

EDIT: I should amend that. Myspace is lame UNLESS you're a band.

Yeah it seems that the myspace page has taken the place of the "official website" for a lot of bands.

I don't know if that is a good thing or a bad thing. Opinion?

my advice is never use either, fb or ms, or even twitter. The 1st thing most persepective employers do when you leave an interview is google your name then look at all the goodies posted to those sites, good luck getting hired after most of what I see.

Considering I don't drink or do drugs and wouldn't be stupid enough to post pictures of me partaking in either even if I did, I'm gonna go ahead and ignore that.

i agree with this. but i refuse to move. one is enough for me. i primarily use it to stay on top of when favorite bands put new stuff out. very few friends are ever on there anymore...
#26
i still use myspace. i think its better then facebook and all the other crap (the only thing i do on facebook is post a status saying "why do i have this account")

i have 5 myspace profiles and its awsome. the only thing that annoys me about myspace is when people message me that are annoying (i get people who will say hi and no matter waht you say back they respond with a one word answer)

I know you control what you post but what about what others may? I bought Blizzard of Oz on LP the day it was released in the states in 1981, same for the tribute album so I feel an inate right to my avi.

I didnt invent this I read it in a yahoo job hunter tips article. just passing it along.

I deleted my myspace over a year ago and never looked back. I've never been to myspace since. I also have a facebook, but I never use it. I'll log in a few times a month, do nothing and that's it.

Talking IRL FTW!

Myspace is only good for bands nowadays. For friends it's stupid.

Myspace is too hard on my eyes. There's shit everywhere, it's so unorganized, I hate it. Facebook is structured, and (despite the sites' constant and annoying changes) much neater.

Plus, there's Lamebook.com.
#32
I only use myspace for Mafia Wars, and Facebook for Farmville and communicating with people for school stuff.

Other than that, not much.

That may be true, but you can also set your profile to private so they can only see your main profile picture and your info. All is solved.

In answer to the thread, fb is for me. I would only use myspace for the bands things, by nothing else.

On the note of facebook, who else hates the new layout?

And now facebook is all cluttered and no-one knows what to do.

Hopefully they don't migrate to twitter. I refuse to get a twitter or associate with anyone who has one.

Myspace has turned into the burned out ghetto of the internet.

Facebook is watching the neighborhood value go down.

And twitter is the most ridiculous, stupid thing ever invented. Like someone needs to know when I'm taking a shower or buttering toast!

Myspace is going to have to think of something really cool or else it will be a thing of the past.

People use Facebook now because it's not *cool* to use myspace anymore. I continue to use myspace because facebook ****ING SUCKS. I can't imagine why anyone would use that confusing piece of shit website
