Not sure about Myspace (‘cause I don’t “do” Myspace and I’m too old), but, with Fluther .. sometimes my work suffers. ;-( It’s rather addicting, as well.

eh. It’s said time and again, but anything left completely unmoderated can be a “bad” thing. MySpace in and of itself is (relatively) harmless. If you’re sitting in front of MySpace for six hours a day, it’s not the site’s fault, it’s yours.

I’m a hypocrite for suggesting moderation, of course, but it’s just the truth.

Personally, I don’t see what draws people to MySpace/Facebook, but that doesn’t make them “bad”, either.

Myspace isn’t bad and doesn’t ruin relationships. People sometimes use their time poorly and sometimes make bad decisions.

@jmah Too old? I’m 55 and I do myspace – started mostly just to annoy my kids, but then I discovered that there were tens of thousands of us old technogeeks haunting the place. Kids think that they know it all, but we developed the technology they play with. I was coding back when 16bit registers were something to be marveled at. When I started Philips was producing the first 4 bit chips. Get yourself up there and frighten your kids. (Or grand kids as the case might be.)

I loved MySpace but then pretty much everyone migrated to Facebook… And then after much consideration so did I. MySpace is better in my opinion, it just needs a re-vamp as it’s not that easy on the eye.

@vaudevillian. Never really thought about going to facebook. Might have to check it out

it’s just as bad as anything else you can spend too much of your time on.
