So I finally succumbed to creating one of these stupid things, for the sole purpose of keeping in contact with friends who have nothing better to do than sit around and send each other stupid comments. ANYWAY. How the hell do you take a photo of yourself without looking like a complete jackass?

Get someone else to take the photo of you, and don't do a portrait shot, look like you're doing something.

And Facebook>Myspace.

I did the same thing with facebook, I just put in a fake name and whenever I send a friend request I just tell them it's me. I has lots of funny informations.

Just get somebody to take a pic of you doing something you enjoy, like playing guitar or something. Don't look at the camera.

i had bebo first then myspace and the facebook and facebook is the only one ive kept its the only worthy one there is and facebooks still a bit poor really

I didn't care for facebook. The layout of the home page is ****ty and inconvenient.


I can see what you're saying, and it might be the case for you. It does the job for me though. I use Facebook to talk to old friends daily that have moved away, and that's about it. So it works great for me. Myspace got too spammy for me.

However, I do miss the layout I had. It was the sweetest looking thing EVER.

I got all 3..... its my only method of socialising.... yes I am very sad.

I don't have any of that crap because:
(a) I don't wanna sink to that level of stupidity and remain in contact with people in person rather than reading half a million ****ty bulletins and "omggz I luv yous xxx" messages which leads to
(b) I really don't like almost all the people that I'm supposed to be associating with because I am sick of their high school bull**** and sickening attachments. I have a few great friends that i care about plus my best friend/girlfriend and that is all I care about.

That's what I said when I made one. Trust me, people survived long before MySpace, it's a waste of time.

You can't.
You are like a hurricane
There's calm in your eye.

I want to love you but
I'm getting blown away.

i always think maybe ill sign up to myspace but i have a facebook and anyone who wants to just have myspace and no facebook, well i guess they will just have to miss out on the constant updates i post about my life

Facebook is awful...myspace has actually improved a lot recently. Although most of my friends on myspace are people i've never met.
I just use facebook to stay in touch with school friends, that's the only reason i go on that horrible website.

Myspace angle.

meh, i dont see a problem with having a social platform that lets me keep in contact with friends that i would otherwise lose all contact with. Myspace also lets me keep up with all of the developments in my local music scene, which bands are playing etc etc which is incredibly important to me

Ive thought about getting Facebook, but I would feel like a traitor

I deleted my myspace a few days ago because I hadn't used it for about a year.

btw has anyone noticed how lots of bands on stage are all 'So yeah! Who's got Myspace then!?', what's all that about eh?
#23
oh crap. we've lost another one to myspace.

at least make sure that you take the picture yourself. Hold the camera high above you and look right at it, without smiling. Oh, make sure you have enough makeup on before hand.

Facebook's even worse...

"Oh hi I'm just leaving you a comment on your public wall so I can look cool and social etc - blah blah blah"..

I'm a hypocrite! Sort of.

I don't see anything wrong with MySpace.

It's okay. It's just some people revolve their lives around it. If you just don't have it, there is no problems.

It's just a popular "I'm a rebel! Screw social networking!" craze going about. Superiority complexes abounds.

I'm not saying everyone absolutely must have a Myspace/Facebook. Don't like it, fine. To assert that it's an accomplishment to avoid a website, of all things, shows how diluted some people's values over mere things have become. Really folks, it's a shame.

Well I never had it before because I thought it would be too much effort maintaining. I used to have one ages back, but it was too much hassle to use. I was at my friends house today and he was on his Myspace, and I was shocked at how much it had changed. I was also shocked at how much NOT having one had hindered my social network; because most kids use myspace, there's no other way to stay in contact with them when you can't see them on a daily basis.

Anyway, I still haven't taken a decent photo: I just cant make it work when I take it myself, so I'll get a friend to or something.

How one could infer such a conclusion out of a mere website is beyond me. Following this logic, I could say that UG has sucked the life out of guitar playing.

Such conclusions further solidify my first observation.

Touche. A fair point, well made. I only hate it because of the effect it has had on people. All of a sudden ppl r typin lik ths, thn spekin lyk ths as wll. I've got nothing against lazy typing as such, but people who actually talk like that? That bugs me. I just think that Myspace is a figurehead to the decline of society. I think that people shouldn't have to big up their ego online, just be comfortable with who they are.

To go as far as to say that it would be a decline to society is a little harsh, though I do understand your points, and have witnessed such problems. Popularity contests, friend collectors, "ADD ME ADD ME ADD ME!!!" type responses are quite commonplace.

There's always something to spoil an whole, and I can see where the Myspace hate stems from. I find it foolish, sure, but not completely unfounded. The same could be said for UG; there's undesirable people and elements as well.

Just my opinions, nothing more. I'm actually glad to have sparked some insight into this "hate".

Yeah, I do see where you're coming from. I think it's good that people can have different opinions about something and just talk about it. In retrospect, the decline in society thing was a bit much

By the way, this is the first intelligent conversation I've had in the Pit! Mostly the answers to the threads are either "rape it" or "kill it"... I love the Pit.

I do enjoy a good stimulating conversation as well. Admittedly, I keep a lot of my thoughts to myself in the Pit, mainly for the fact that it's far too easy to catch a "NO U" or "U FAG" reply.
