I don’t know anyone who uses Myspace. I don’t use it (I have a profile that I created years ago that I haven’t done anything with in a long time) and I never hear people talking about it. Facebook, on the other hand, seems omnipresent. I use it every day, and everyone I know is on it. All of my friends, my parents, my grandparents…chances are, if I meet someone, they are on Facebook.
Facebook has a simple and easy-to-use interface, and the search engine is user friendly and the profiles are easy to look at and everything loads quickly.
Myspace is convoluted and confusing, filled with elaborate custom pages with graphics that freeze your computer; it’s like a big joke. I don’t know anyone who takes it seriously.
Has Facebook effectively won this war? Or was there never any war to begin with, and the two sites fill two separate niches?
