    Other than band pages, I've never seen a use for MySpace, so this doesn't really come as a surprise.

    Facebook is much better, in my opinion.

    Also, it doesn't consist of nothing more than emo and scene kids using stupid camera angles in their photos.

    Im not sure why facebook and twitter are suddenly the kings of social networking, but they must be doing something right. The nintendo approach perhaps (ie. overly simplistic to capture the masses), whereas MySpace seemed much more configurable - almost like a web site/page builder rolled up with all the other social elements.

    Plus people can have facebook/twitter accounts just to keep up with social events and 'friend' news etc, whereas MySpace seemed to want 'more' from you in order to get the most from it.

    All in all, MySpace is now like Yahoo in the search business... stagnant and posting lower growth results than its peers...

    facebook is just a nicer app to use, tbh i think myspace feels cheap nowadays. at the end of the day this is "social" networking if your friends are all using one site you're unlikely to use another

    Myspace is a great way to meet new people outside your social circle. It's great to meet people from other states and become friends with them. You can't really do that with Facebook. It's also a great way to discover new music and bands. Can't do that with Facebook.

    Twitter is just a little abomination of the two. :p
