I’ve set up a myspace account. If any other Dopers have a myspace account and would care to be friends, here’s a link to my profile- please add me. I’d love to see some of your profiles. (I also have one on facebook but rarely check it.)
I believe that in three months time Spacebook will be but a foyer to Straight Dope Message Boards, and then we’ll be that much closer to full conquest of CYBERSPACE AND BEYOND! LONG LIVE THE SUPREME ADMINISTRATOR…
I bet I’m an older fart and I just started with MySpace too - though I did it for a specific reason and I may not do much more with it. It seems like every time I try to change something I get an error message.
My kids’ school banned it. At first I was shocked, indignantly announcing the school couldn’t tell my children what they could do in their spare time. Then I realized how dangerous it can be for the little ones, and now it’s verboten.
My son has a scary experience on myspace…some guy asked to meet him, and when he quite smartly to go jump in a lake (actually, he said it in typical teenaged boy vernacular, but you get the idea) the guy said that he knew where he lived and he was coming over anyway.
I’m just about to join myspace so I can become friends with you, or any other dopers I may meet there. I’m actually on th’other such site, bebo. here’s my page http://run-gmc.bebo.com here if you want a look, feel free to join me as a friend (Read: PLEASE join me as a friend!!!). Both bebo and myspace are basically the same right? Is one particularly better that the other?
I was really irked to find that my nephew (14, cute, blonde, naive) had a profile and suggested to my brother that he “reconsider”. I noticed today that his profile is changed to “friends only”, which I’m glad of (and also glad I don’t have teenagers in today’s world- I’d have to find a house with an attic big enough to lock them in and then if there are not enough windows the kids will get pasty and too many then the neighbors will see and HR will come snooping, I don’t know how folks do it.)
