I’ve signed up for Hi5, Bebo, myspace (actually, only got halfway through the process), and some other online groups, but I dont think I’ve stayed up-to-date with any of them, except one. This one is called Facebook. If you’ve never heard of it, it’s basically like myspace, only simpler, and is very popular among post-secondary students. However, up until recently, it was only open to those with university/college emails. However now anyone can join. And I must say, it is quite nice. I’ve never delved too deep into Myspace or any other social networks, so I wouldn’t know if they have online groups, or a similar structure. Facebook is awesome in the sense that it’s a blog, a photo storage area, a guestbook and a network among friends. People from all over the globe use this, and it’s cool when you meet someone you once knew, or someone that you may have heard of.
Let’s just say, I have my qualms with Myspace (why do most people set their pages as black backgrounds? It’s so depressing it makes me want to cry). Also, Myspace gets really cluttered and annoying when trying to view it. The song feature is cool, but it just makes loading a page that much more of a hassle. And having a “top friends” list…seems kind of demeaning to people. Especially when you thought you were someones best friend, and find out you were beat out by ananymous_hatr2 (aka “That Guy/Girl”).
If you’re having doubts, just try it out. I know a certain Addicted Geek who seems to be enjoying it. He even created his own group to gather other addicted geeks! So just give it a shot, and don’t forget to add me! I don’t like feeling left out, because that is just ignorant!
