I graduated from college a tad bit too early for social networking. Facebook wasn’t a twinkle in Zuck’s eye when I was in college, and Friendster wasn’t really even up yet. But being a tech-groupie I joined Friendster probably in 03/04. Then MySpace. And then, once I found my rutgers alumni email password, Facebook.
What’s been most interesting to see is how quickly they’ve come and gone. Friendster was sizzling. Then died. MySpace was then the hottest thing ever for a few years. Now, all I hear about is Facebook. I’ve been actively using both Facebook and Myspace daily over the past year, and now clearly prefer one to the other. If I never had to log-in to MySpace again, I’d be thrilled. It’s filled with spam, people’s songs blasting from their profile, and hideous looking pages. Facebook is prettier and more real. Anyway, is MySpace over? Is Facebook hot for now, but waiting for the “next” one to come take its place? What do you think? Email me!
