I have noticed lately that Myspace is kind of dying. I don't get nearly as many messages as I used to on there. It used to be a single day would give me anywhere from 10-20 messages. Now? I am lucky to get one. No one really uses it. It has gotten boring.
Then there is Facebook. I joined it in about 2005. It wasn't as popular then except with college kids and teens. I was going to college so of course heard about it and created one. It was boring. I didn't talk to anyone really on there so hardly ever checked it.
Then one day, it grew. Now everyone and I mean everyone has one. My uncles, aunts, cousins, friends. Everyone is there. I find more people I went to school with on there than I ever did on Myspace.
Here is the thing. In the slow agonizing death of MY Myspace anyway I see it turning itself into Facebook. First it added all the annoying apps. Regardless of their annoyance there are some I participate in. I don't mind Texas Holdem Poker. I kinda like it on occasion. I even have a virtual pet that I occasional bathe and take for a walk. (I do mean occasionally. It usually sits on my page with a sad face covered in clouds of dust.)
Then in the past month I see their mood status and comment section is now exactly like Facebooks. Then a couple of days ago I got on, and saw a message at the bottom of my screen from my sister. It now has chat...just like Facebook. So pretty soon I think the sites will be exactly the same. I have things I like better about Myspace and things I like better about Facebook. If they could combine them and make a totally NEW site it would be cool. No....no. That's not true. I'd just join it too and add it to my never ending list of social networks.
