Let’s be for real…almost half theÂ students at this school have a Myspace, Facebook, or both.Â Which one fits your personality best?Â
To be honestÂ I have a Myspace and I LOVE IT!!!!Â I believe Myspace is more for teenagers than adults because with Myspace you have more stuff to do like listen to music andÂ leave picture comments.Â You can approve your comments beforeÂ they’re posted, but with Facebook you don’t get to approve your comments; they are automacially there. On Myspace,Â you can also post pictures on other people’s pages.
Facebook is more for adults because it is less complicatedÂ andÂ only hasÂ game applications. With Facebook, you cannot have a graphic background like you can with Myspace (BORING)!!!! Â Also, youÂ can not put music on your Facebook page.
It’s probably better for teenagers to be on Myspace because there is more entertainment available,Â but bothÂ Â sites provide communication, which is always good.
Sometimes neither one of these websites can be good. It’s been known that there are predators pretending to be someone else on these sites. In Missouri, a woman created a Myspace account pretending to be a boy named Josh Evans. She then met a girl named Megan Meier, who was actually a former friend of the woman’s daughter. After a few weeks of chatting with Megan, she started sending her explicit messages, including one that said the world would be a better place without her, causing the young teenager to commit suicide in her own home (click).
These websites are fun to be on but you have to be careful who you meet.
Do’s and Dont’s of Myspace and Facebook:
* If you are gonna talk about somebody on your Myspace or Facebook DONT put their name! It’s nothing but drama!Â
* For safety resons,Â you should put your page on private .
* You should also be careful what kind of information you put about yourselfÂ on your page.
