Default Facebook Gets Even Closer To Becoming Myspace

Now they have these stupid "applications" that you can install on your facebook page. Stuff like music, animated slideshows etc. Why don't they just leave it simple like its always been?

I mean i love myspace (im addicted) but i like that the two sites are/were different. Myspace was the flashy style, Facebook was the more organized/mature site. Now they're getting closer and closer to being each other

Facebook has changed our socialization culture. Instead of people saying "call me," or "e-mail me" it's now "facebook me." In the dating field, it is a tool for people to look up information about the other person beforehand. Also, employers use it to scope out the people they are hiring. That doesn't fall under the "socialization" umbrella, but in a way it does. Instead of maybe talking to the references, they might be more tempted to just look them up on facebook and make a sweeping judgement based off of that.

Funny thing happened to me at the mall last night. I was walkin and i heard this girl scream but i ignored it. Then she comes running up and JUMPS into my arms. I still had no idea who it was, but when she got down i realized she was a girl off my myspace friends list. I had never met her in real life before but she recognized me off there lol..i felt like a celebrity

Similar thing happened to me as well. I had looked up some random girl on myspace, and then I see her at a party and she comes up and starts talking to me. I had no idea who she was until she told me she recognized me from myspace.

I just don't understand facebook whores. people with 300 friends in my HS's network alone, then 150 more in a college that they don't even attend yet. maybe 1 in 20 of these people are actually that popular.

if someone I've never talked to about anything deeper than what the homework was requests me, I REJECT THEM.

that's right... I'm a relic of an earlier age. an age when people actually had friends that they communicated with outside of their computers.

I remember when I first got facebook and like the third day after I added all my essentials, I got like 3 requests. all 3 were people I didn't even know. I remember just staring at my screen like... are you kidding me.

I have a college friend on my facebook profile who has about 800 friends from our school. It's just pathetic. I have about 110 and I know each and every one of them. Granted, some of them I haven't talked to in a long one/talked to only a few times, but at least I know them and would probably wave and say hi if I saw them on the streets.
