“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

Another reason I like facebook over myspace

The latest invitation on my MySpace page: "MS. BLaQ-gAl would like to be added to your MySpace friends list."

Okay, now, people ... I'm getting these almost daily now ... invites that usually come from one-name sources (Jessica, FunLovingFiona, etc.) Does anyone else out there have the impression that MySpace is a pickup bar for desperate people and prostitutes?

Or am I doing something to provoke such invitations?

No, you're not provoking those "invitations." You warned me away from My Space. Since then, I've confirmed that your judgment was correct. The advantage of My Space is that you can access it without having to be a member. So if you want exposure for your book or garage band, you'll get more of it there. The disadvantage, you've touched upon in your post. Besides security, I also prefer the look of Facebook to that of My Space. It's cleaner and more legible.

When I was deciding between MySpace and facebook my always hip teenage daughter Grace said, "Mom, get a facebook. MySpace is for predators."

Hey Ad, Sharon here

You are not wrong. Facebook is No. 106 on the list of Stuff White People Like and it's true. Myspace is like the inner city of online communities, and Facebook is the gated community
