MySpace Love, Not! 10 Reasons Not To Do MySpace

As I’ve mentioned here before, I’ve been tempted to create my own MySpace page on a number of occasions, but always stopped short primarily for aesthetic reasons. In 10 Reasons I Didn’t Start a MySpace Account, John invites the MySpace love! His reasons include annoying music, pages with too much stuff on them, long load times, and poorly chosen backgrounds. For me, all of these are under the heading of aesthetics. Other reasons, like people getting hurt, and vapid communication, are sadly, not unique to MySpace. There’s plenty of that in the real world. In the old days, one might say that art is just imitating life, but MySpace isn’t really art. I’m afraid that MySpace, and similar sites have actually become a part of life. So it’s only natural that the failings of life should be exhibited therein.
