once you're linked to others, you get to view bulletins of news posted by your 'friends' (and also their friends), as well as being able to message individuals (or groups) and it really is a great networking tool. Unlike a forum (which is usually single group specific), it acts as a giant 'cobweb' that links all these disparate groups of 'friends' together that might not otherwise 'link'.Blackdown wrote:can someone explain the myspace thing to me?
when i go there all it is, it a space with a nice music player integration and links to other people's myspaces, all of whom dont have much content there either.
it's not better than forum, or hompages or blogs - so why has it become this massive thing?
It's just another tool - not 'better' than a forum or blog, just another form of communicating and networking. I'm sure if you set one up you'd think differently after a while!
Yeah you get some who try and abuse it (you can block them if they try and add you as a 'friend' and they're in a totally unrelated field like fundamental christian rock).
In short, I think it's pretty cool.
