Tried to sit this one out on the fence, but it's no good.... I am falling off on the "What's the bloody point.." side. Dunno.. maybe I'm just old. :) It's just that most My Space sites, and in fact, most homepages of any kind, tend to be utterly pointless, boring, and very badly designed. There's nothing of any worth on most of them, and life's too short to waste it reading about someone else's day/life/problems/desires (delete as appropriate).

Then again... there's something voyeuristic, and compelling about it.

The jury is out.

However.. Mrs Pook is a blogaholic in the extreme. Click here to see what I mean

I honestly don't understand how she finds the time. It's all I can do to fall into bed after a hard day's work lately... Kids today huh? (sheesh)... I can remember when our Dad brought us all up in a crisp packet, on a wage of 5p a month.... we didn't have MySpace then I'll tell you.... you all need a good spell in the army... Never did me any harm...

I think the reason people willing to say so much of myspace/LJ/whatever else is because of the disconnection from peoples reaction to it - they did a study a few years ago about how much people were willing to share about themselves, comparing face to face, over the phone and via messaging programs.

People share least face to face, a bit more over the phone, and by far the most via messaging programs. When you tell someone something face to face, it's rather hard for them to hide their reactions to it, whereas via a messenger your visible reaction is whatever you choose to type. Thus, people are willing to share more controversial stuff, because they don't see the "Oh my god, you sick twisted *******" face you pull after reading what they just wrote.

Obviously that doesn't directly cross over to myspace accounts, but it's probably part of the reason people say so much on them.

I'm doing an experiment.

After reading this article I decided to choose a random friend of my friend (possibly the most emo guy you have ever met; has about 70 MySpace friends) and see just how much I can find out about him.

No I'm not a stalker. I am making a point.

Anyone agree with me?

"Must be Emo" psuedo myspace emo satire.

Another funny myspace satire.

HeHe, enjoy!

Anyways, I for one won't join myspace out of principle. Well, if I *do* ever sign up, it'll be out of an anti-myspace principle!

I've been at myspace for about year. Idk, it's alright. But you're right, too many emo kids.

I wonder if you guys have heard about the thirteen year old girl from Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada. She's a sweet little grade 8 student who met her 23 year old boyfriend at VampireFreaks.com, and then then after her parents wouldn't aprove she decided to murder her entire family. Kinda makes you think how messed up people can get if you decide to let them surf the internet unchecked.

I'd say it's more about how messed up people can get if you let them go unchecked full stop. Sure, the internet is one thing that can can act as a catalyst for that, but so are movies, books, friends, and the inside of peoples heads.

Parents should have an idea of what their children are doing online just as they should offline - not watch and record everything they're doing, but pay enough attention so that they can catch stuff like this.

I agree with daxar, buuuut, it's so much easier to moniter a child when they're playing outdoors, or engaging in an indoor activity. When a child is on the computer, they can easily mask their activities. It is also often the case these days that children are more computer literate than their parents.

It took a while before my parents understood that IMs were not the children-snatching chat rooms they kept hearing about on TV. I can't even successfully convey to them the purpose of these forums.

These days, with text messages and photo messaging and IMs and My Space, it's very hard to moniter someone. Parents are too trusting of their children. Right now I'm on my parents' computer, which was in the same place when me and my sister started junior high 12 years ago - in the dining room. A centrally located computer allowed us just enough privacy for us to talk to our friends via IM or email. These days, with computers being so affordable, it's common for teens and pre-teens to have one in their bedroom, often with an internet connection. It's very easy to blame the parents, but from an objective point of view, the internet won't make a sane person do insane things, but it might motivate a whacko enough to just slip over the edge.

Mother-Goose just from looking at your Myspace I was able to get the info I needed to find your telephone number listed under your Dads name and a map to your house (although this COULD be wrong, it's probably right).

I know what you look like and that you don't have a girlfriend. By the looks of things you'd probably quite like one.

I know where you went to University, the course you studied and what the course involved. Your more than a little proud of your Qualifications (which is fair enough) and are happy for people to know it.

Of course I also know all your favourite authors, movies and musical artists.

You respect Richard Branson for what he has achieved and how he managed it and perhaps even have read and re-read his autobiography for pointers.

Your a fan of formula 1

I could go on and on but 15 minutes is more than enough time to snoop around. Point is, you don't think your giving away much but you are. I accept much of what I said is guess work but educated guesses at least.

Not a bad effort for a MySpace page there, and I have to say I rather like the tune that magically auto-played for me (see below) - Joshua Radin - Winter. Good stuff.

I'd actually completely avoided MySpace, hell I didn't even know it existed, until last week when...

... I was directed to it by one of my favourite group's websites. And yes, it's horrible, and irritating. What's wrong with proper websites!? Just 'cause MySpace might be easy to update, doesn't mean we fans should have to lump it.

Hahahhaa, it's so true. What's even more annoying is that you can go in to your personal preferences - once you've got an account - and disable the auto-playing of music. Problem is, MySpace never seems to remember who I am so I'm always signed out, so it always auto-plays anyway. Fan-bloody-tastic.

Bah humbug!
