MySpace vs. FaceBook, the Face-Off
Hi, my name is Chris and I am going to post to Web-World Watch for a few days. Nancy is my Mom and she has asked me to write about some of the cool things on the Web that I really like. So here's my face off between Facebook
has been the leading personal info site for about two years now and they finally have some competition.
This new site, FaceBook
, is another site that has recently started to be noticed by people. It is also a personal info site for the things that MySpace
used to be used for such as dating, friends, networking and serious relationships.FaceBook
seems to be aimed towards an older crowd since it doesn
’t have the same layout features that MySpace
has. Some of the features that I like about My Space are as the background layouts, being able to put songs on your page to reflect the kind of music you like, and many other things that drew kids and teenagers into MySpace
was originally created to help underground music artists to become noticed. It was quickly picked up by single persons as a means of expression and group communication as well as even the high school crowd.
Now many people are making two accounts one for MySpace
and one for FaceBook
just to keep up with all their friends. Some people like Facebook
better because not everyone was into the flash appearance of MySpace
and just wanted a simple page to reveal things about themselves for others to know and to meet new people.
Personally I like MySpace
better. I like the ability to customize my layout, get music, and backgrounds. I find Facebook
too sterile and not interactive enough. But hey that is just my personal preference.
