I signed up with myspace awhile back. Not sure why, but I think I saw someone’s link on their blog and decided to take a look. Of course, you have to sign up to see anything, so I did and wasn’t real impressed. I didn’t like the way it looked and frankly, I didn’t get the point of it! Time went on and I kept getting all these emails from people like, BimboTeen #1 or PornStarWannaBe asking me to ‘be their friend’. I was like, yah whatever! DENY! Then I saw all the publicity myspace was getting and it wasn’t good news at that! I continued to have all these bad thoughts about the site.
Then, while visiting my aunt, uncle, and cousins in Dallas, they were telling me how addicted my cousins were and how they are on it all the time. So curiousity got me and I started to check it out. I added them as ‘friends’ and they added me. Then, I saw the little link where you can put where you went to school. I found this quite intriguing, so I added my schools. Before long, I was doing a search of all the people that graduated my year. I was so excited to find lots of people I knew and starting adding them as ‘friends’. Then, I checked for other family members and added them too. I’ve since gotten in touch with lots of old high school friends and I’m up to 37 friends. So now I have a little more respect for myspace. It’s still a very scary place for children, especially if they’re not being supervised!
(I see that look in your eye, you’re thinking about joining! Now aren’t ya?)
