the difference between AIM and myspace is what?
Well I use Myspace for contacting my cousins in Atlanta but I also use it for friends and stuff. I wouldn't say im addicted but I like making layouts and stuff and I like making them for friends. Just for fun.
I had a really good one on my last Myspace but since it got friggin deleted..
I made a LeBron one. see.
And Gunny theres tons of differences between AIM and Myspace.. lol
Anyone have AIM?
I am meaning they are both online and you talk to someone in both of them.
AIM would win the battle of talking to people.
Since an I.M can be sent from here to where you are within milliseconds
It is still the same premise.
See, on a message board, there's no cute wallpaper with flowers, list of people whom you don't know trying to leave a comment like you're all cool with each other, lists of stupid random sayings and .gif images that's supposed to make the rest of us think you're hip.
Actual exchanges of ideas happen on message boards. MySpace is just a vanity exercise. And I've never met Tom, and he's not my friend, so I don't know why he showed up when I first joined. I hope I didn't upset him too much when I deleted my proifile shortly thereafter.
The thing is.. what your talking about yes its true but when people use myspace to keep in contact with friends , family , ect... its not as bad. When people try to act all cool and add everyone and their brother and comment them and crap then yea. Myspace has alot of those people. Nothing anyone can do about it.
Myspace is nice when you use it for the reason it was made.
Nonetheless Tom is out making millions apon millions of dollars for all these people who are obsessed with Myspace...
I actually made my profile so I could communicate with my neice. For some reason, our e-mails just would not get sent. She insisted on MS. That didn't last long.
Maybe because you needed to confirm your account before sending messages. lol
Incorrect. There is cute wallpaper. Sigs and Avatars. They give a sense of character to who you are. The person behind the screen name. And yes, people constantly act like so-and-so is informative, pwning, etc on message boards.
Exchanges of ideas happen on blogs more-so than message boards IMO. But once again, psst - myspace has message boards too. Tom is the creator of the site. It's a welcome type deal, and an example. Try not being so anal and looking in to things far too much.
ryanstitans, here's mine dude. My layout is soooooo cute! Come leave messages on mine so I feel cool please!
Yeah, my layout was a headache, but it was worth it. Tom added me as a friend afterwards. So cool.
