You know, been meaning to write this for awhile now..
How many of you have a my space account?
Would you believe I dont? Why? Well.. lets say this.. in the past month, how many items in the news have you heard about My Space this and that, used My space accounts to incriminate someone as proof or just in general.
My thought was that My Space would be a Live Journal type of thing so I never used it.. but look at it now, its a buncha hype, people staring at it daily to count their "friends" yea right.. BS..
Not only that, seems My Space is HEAVILY monitored for internet preditors, crimes, and various things.. now for a site that is designed to be "My Space" my blog kinda thing.. seems too controlled where you worry about who else is reading things they shouldnt be. Thus I never use it.
If you rem back on msnbc, they talked about a kid who was expelled from school from a my space site of his! Something shouldnt affect the other... but it does.. So after seeing almost weekly my space in the news.... its just one more reason to stay far away from it..
If I wanted a Blog (Which.. I been thinking about doing.. for random thoughts like this post etc) I could use my own host.. setup a blog manager and so.. I could use newspro like I do now.. wonder what other options are out there for hosting your own blog..
I know I used to use Live Journal, which is indeed nice and all.. I just never used it TOO much... Just at random.
But yea, who else thinks My space is either too much hype, or just think its too monitored and controlled to feel comfortable posting? Just seems crazy to me when you hear about people getting in trouble for this and that or posting their private stuff and getting in trouble for it.. just sad..
