    so they're basically fancy webpages owned by facebook or myspace, instead of geocities or angelfire?

    I absolutely agree! The whole reason I liked Facebook was because it was SIMPLE and professional (ie. no annoying, emo-styled, 'creative' pages), but now, with all the useless new applications, Facebook is starting to lose its image as a simple friends' site.

    I guess that's what happens. Soon, it'll be called Google Facebook.
    Just wait and see.

    Never got round to making one of these myspace-esque things, was facebook meant to be better or something before it came like myspace? Or is it the usual haterism of large/popular sites?

    Man I was just thinking that the other day. I liked facebook because it was just a simple networking site. I hated all the top friends drama crap on myspace, and all the flashy junk on all the pages. But now facebook has all these top friends things and other application crap..

    basically
    it was easier to network, keep in touch with friends, etc
    plus you had to be in college to previously join so you didn't have peopel trying to hook up with 14 years old on there or 16 year old girls trying to get booty calls.

    You don't want to know, Myspace is a poorly designed, hard to use hunk of shite. Any site where you have to jump through a trail of 4 pages just to post a blog entry is beyond ridiculous.

    It's a nice idea, it's just very, very badly presented. And having a section for "list your schools" is just asking for trouble.

    Facebook is no where NEAR as bad as MySpace, as long as they keep it so people cant change their profile themes or anything. I've got an account on both, of the two I use Facebook more, which isn't really saying much. It was better when they limited it to College students....now that its open to everyone more seedy people have been showing up.

    Nothing wrong with high school kids (well...), but I don't remember being as big a wise-ass when I was in high school.

    Facebook would've been better if it stayed university-only. But then again, university students with Facebook grow up to become adults with Facebook, leaving only the high school students left out.

    It used to be for college students only. Later, they expanded to high schools, then universal. I really like how you cannot change the themes also. There's no need for excessive flash-based effects, songs and videos.
