View Full Version : Is mystpace just good for the hookups?

07-17-2006, 03:23 PM
I was watching this station this evening (G4 - they play the OLD original Star Trek shows!!!) and there was a big debate on whether myspace was just a place to get hook ups, or if it was a place to meet people and have a good time.

Now, I don't have a myspace, not sure why, other than I spend to much time in pb forums as it is. My question then, is myspace a good thing or bad thing?

Discuss for a lengthy amount of time.....:D

i dont really use myspace to meet people, but to stay in touch with people i already know.

Never understood Myspace... If it is to keep up with people, why cant you use IM or E-mail... Is it to show yourself off? or it must be too meet people. Please explain to the old timers :)

for me, its to keep tabs on people who you wouldnt see otherwise

i am friends with alot of people in school, but i never hang out with them over the summer, and myspace relationships=no go, fds

If you use myspace to hook up with people, you suck at life. Period.

I'm with Chris on this one. The only reason I have a MySpace is because it's free (big one there, lol) and I have friends that go onto MySpace to upload pictures, and to get to those pictures, I need an account.

I'm divided on voting on the first or last option... LOL!

The first one reminds me of the quote "The internet is not a dumptruck. It's a series of tubes . . ."

Kudos to whoever knows what I'm talking about.

umm, i pick option #5: None of the Above. i use Myspace to keep in touch with people (especially since almost all my friends are in the military) and thats about it. and its easier when you need to tell someone something and dont have their phone number or email or cant talk to them in person

MySpace is great for all those predators to meet underage children. they can exchange pics, arrange travel for the children, and take them to places they don't want to go.

Other than that it is a great way to network, find old friends, keep in touch with friends, find new music, funny vids, and kill sometime.

Option #5 is the best statement about MySpace in here. If you are going to do on-line dating go to an actual dating website and find someone. MySpace is not for dating.

MySpace sucks now. I don't go there to meet girls but I do try to make new friends. I've found that about 90% of the girls on there are there to promote a porn site or their "Live Web Cam" site.

myspace ftw... atleast you can get rid of the hippies and goths by saying its a conformonistic society and is now owned by the man.

Yep i have a myspace but i dont do anything with it.... i check it and add people who ask me to be added.... Other then that i think its lame.....

Yep too much porn for this indian.....

vike: they actually aired that Attack of the Show episode today where they had that debate. i cant believe that 79% of the viewers that voted picked "dating." my guess would be that most (if not all) of them are nerds that sit at their computer all day...

as for the staying in contact with friends thing, i just found 2 more people today that i havent talked to in 2 years.

lolz, youtube was on the news today about being open to sexual predators.

I like myspace just to keep in touch with people and meet new people with the same interest's.

Actually I've been so busy lately that I haven't been able to hang out with a certain group of friend's and I guess they were talking about me not coming around one night and one of there wive's told them everything that I had been doing cause she has a myspace account and read's my blog's. That's the main reason right there.

I think there are two girl's on my myspace that I haven't actually met and that's about it. One never talk's to me and I need to delete her cause that's lame and the other I talk to on a weekly basis. Hasn't really crossed my mind to meet at all as I'm just too busy and it's not necessary!

Originally, I set up a MySpace to track my sons usage, but several old friends have found me and that has been nice.....
I see alot of commericals that include web addresses at MySpace and I think that is a good thing.....but
The amount of bs, pics of kids that should never be posted on the net, personal information (esp. from young ones) and ads for whatever overcharging dating service make it like wadeing through a sewer to get to something cool on the other side.....
A good idea that is pretty icky at times......

i think myspace is getting too big, like, they now have a phone service (helio) thats main selling point is being able to go onto myspace wherever you want...

i mean, come on...if you cant wait untill you get home to look at it, something is wrong with you
