Myspace – A Rant

I don’t get MySpace addiction among so many people. I logged in tonight and hunted down some old friends to add, but this is a once in a great while occasion. I usually avoid MySpace like the plague unless i get a message that someone left a comment, friend request (usually spam using the same profile different pic), and mail.

I don’t know why with all the crappy errors you get moving around your own home page behind the scenes (mail, comments, etc) where a random html error pops up. The site for the most part (displaying to the user section) is so simple I have to go with the fact that it must be their scalability.

Of course the last thing I hate about MySpace is that everyone’s profile (mine included since ou can’t really do too much with it) looks like bad web pages from 1994. I have to browse MySpace with my speakers muted since I have never been able to stand music embedded in a web page. I guess you can blame that on too many people putting midi in their web pages back in the mid 90’s.

I have been an Internet user for almost 13 years now – and MySpace has been the biggest decline for the most part in aesthetic design since the lynx stopped being the dominant web browser.

I can I can sum most of it up in five words:

I just don’t get it.
