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?)

    I felt the same way about Myspace. My sister is on myspace, and it seems okay but still can’t feel a little skeptical of it.

    I got back in touch with an old friend and he had a Myspace account. So I signed up so I could read his blog. I had no idea you could search for people. I am going to try it.

    ran across your journal and just thought i’d comment on the myspace thing. i signed up b/c everyone i knew had a myspace account and i don’t like to be left out of things. i really anticipated looking at everything one time and being done with it but OH MY GOSH! i’m so addicted! i sign on all the time to look at everyone’s profiles and pictures. i really think the problem is that i’m NOSY and i can’t help but look and see what everyone’s doing. i totally agree it is a scary place and i don’t have my name and phone number and all that up (like many many people i graduated with do) and my child will NOT have one for a long long time but it keeps me entertained (most of the time for WAY too long)
