Exploring MySpace

I'm just starting to explore the possibilities of MySpace but already I have come up with some info and thoughts that are worth sharing.

The first is that you have to be careful how you "pimp" your MySpace page. One of the most attractive things about Facebook is the clean interface and sparse look. It is much too easy to ruin a MySpaqce page so that it is hard to read and hard to find real information about the person so keep those flashing, sparkling objects and background pictures to a minimum.

The second is that MySpace is full of spam and bogus users so as much as I hate to recommend it, make sure you set comments, friend requests and the other options under spam to use CAPTCHA. This will weed out a lot of spam messages.

Finally, there are not as many good applications for MySpace as Facebook so keep the ones you install to an absolute minimum.

More news from my explorations soon.
