I hate the layout of myspace so much. I think it's one of the reasons Facebook is taking over.

Facebook sucks. Seriously it's so plain and boring. Myspace has so much more stuff you can do with it and actually has designs and themes and stuff. Facebook is garbage.

Personally I don't have either myspace or facebook...so this really doesn't affect me...but I'll have to let my little sisters know about this O_o...

I wonder if they'll make it so the annoying music DOESN'T play as soon as you open the page...

MySpace may be customisable with its themes and (atrocious browser breaking) user-created code, but such variation is what causes fragmentation and lack of unity between a social community. A lot of users seem to love completely covering their profile with custom designs (of which are poorly coded due to MySpace's horrific implementation of HTML and CSS); useful links and other common features are removed at the annoyance of others whom would usually expect to see and use those features to navigate across the site.

A redesign is what MySpace needs, along with a serious major overhaul, because not only do they need to fix their dated code, all its recent feature additions (photo tagging and applications) were copied from Facebook and simply tacked onto its existing architecture which wasn't originally designed to function effectively with those features. Can you expect MySpace to even come remotely close to Facebook's level of privacy controls at the moment?

I used to use MySpace, but now I find it an extremely cheap imitation of Facebook, especially the supposedly "new" (and copied) features which are naturally inferior to Facebook's implementation. Facebook is far more effective as a social networking site as most of its features work towards common goals, and any changes are well planned with user feedback in order to ensure that this functionality is not broken. Facebook is also undergoing changes, but you can bet that MySpace's changes are going to cause a lot more frustration and hassle to its users.

QFT! Atleast I don't get some cheap cam whore messaging me every 2 minutes on Facebook begging me to pay for access to her site. Facebook is where all the people who really want to stay in touch and network go. Myspace is where the emo's, camwhores, and attention whores go. I used to have a Myspace and closed it for a Facebook.
