Anyone have a myspace? It's not for you adults really but it's very popular among teens. If a lot of people on here have them we could make a group. :P

I'd like to see some of yours, not to stalk though. ;)

Post here if you have one.

No. It's got a lot more things. Normal blogs you don't really have "friends" This you can have friends and groups. It's like a profile also. It's got a bunch of things. A lot of bands I listen to have MySpaces.... IT's weird. :eek:

I set up a MySpace thing, but I don't really see the point of it.

It seems like a good tool for someone who has no friends and sits in front of the computer all day, but if you have friends I don't really see a need for it.

I'm not trying to knock anyone who uses MySpace, but to me, why would I sit at the computer internet-chatting with someone I don't know when I can be out with my friends, having fun and actually meeting new people?

EDIT: I just joined the NYYFans.com group, so maybe I'm a nerd too. :dunno:

MySpace is heaven for all of the predators out there. It's amazing how much personal information teens give about themselves. Teens simply do not have the skills/experience to know how to stay safe from professional predators. I'm VERY against this type site. I made my kids remove their profiles. I emailed MySpace (they state the site is for 18 + but my objection is that there is no oversight for this...both my kids are under age and made a profile easily.) No one answered my email. That's gotta tell you something.

No kidding. My younger cousins have pages and they don't write anything but some of their friends detail every single thing they do. Clearly they don't care if their parents are reading the stuff. When I was in High School I would never have left a sticky note for my dad saying "I'm out drinking at so-and-so's house" which is basically the equivalent to what these kids do.

I've been on LiveJournal for over three years and I'm seriously addicted. Ugh, I need a life.

I have a Myspace that I started months and months ago, and have really only used it to get back in touch with some of my old classmates from HS & JHS (NCC doesn't give out student email addresses, so no facebook for me). I'm going to be working in the medical field, and the networking field is only for people with careers in the arts.
"Sorry, an unexpected error has occurred". Every. Single. Day. I've come to expect these "unexpected errors".

Then again, the groups and games are cool.
When the site is functional, that is.

Live Journal is addicting. (link in my signnature)
I write entries where I pour my heart into, and if my family ever saw mine they would kill me. My last one was about girls who lose their identity and friends as soon as they start dating.

I'm obsessed with MySpace. It HAS become my life... to the point that I have my friend count memorized at every single given second (2350 as of 8/24/05 at 2:10 PM... yea it jumped up, and I felt the need to edit this post :lol: ). Yea, I'm that obsessed. I have a lot of stuff on there that would probably have my family disown me if they ever saw it (I already have had a few friends that saw my MySpace and became very pissed off at a few certain things), but it's nothing like my LiveJournal, which I'm not going to link to, since I think if any halfway normal person saw it, they'd look up all my personal info and have me be sent to a mental hospital immediately (and no, I'm not kidding, there's some things on there that are so personal that I refuse to let anyone that knows me personally see it). MySpace is a great tool for meeting people though, I've met a lot of great people across the entire world (all the way from the U.S. to Britain to Japan to Australia to even Africa) on there, some of them even in person (the ones closer to me, really, I also personally met a few out in Chicago though).

I do it a lot. Especially on my LJ, but also on my MySpace. It's a place to vent out anger, and emotions and opinions that they wouldn't agree with or that you don't want them knowing. I'm an agnostic, I'm pro-gay rights, I'm straight edge, and if I went to a psychiatrist today, they'd put me on so much medication I wouldn't know which way is up anymore, none of which anyone in my family knows, mainly because if they found out about any of that, I'd probably be living on the streets begging for money right now. And that's only what I'm actually posting here, there's much more about me that would probably have my family (and friends) calling for my head to be cut off.

I find comfort in the fact that 90% of the people I'm telling this stuff to can relate to it, and that i don't know them personally, it's not like they're going to come up to me and talk to me about things, or tell anyone else that I know.

What if they went on your computer and checked your history, and saw what you were writing. Or if some parent saw it on their child's computer?

yankeeschic12324

I have posted how I felt a couple times. Sometimes its easier for me to write these things down than to express them. I put them there, because someone in my home could find a notebook I hand write emotions in, and when they find it, I never hear the end of it(Yes, this has happened). My parents aren't very computer literate so they wouldn't know how to find any of this stuff. Some stuff I just can't say to anyone in person(not really bad things like drinking and drugs...we talk about these things all the time). Like I can't go to my mom and say my heart is broken, my emotions are killing me,I'm stressed, etc. because to my mom, I shouldn't have any emotions that would kill me, no heartbreak, no stress,etc. So I need to vent my emotions somewhere. I can always call a friend to do that, but sometimes these emotions and my need to write comes @ 2:30 am. So I would not dare call someone that late(no matter if they say they don't care if I call late at night). Idk...its weird.

I don't post my innermost secrets. Like I said, you can make and receive comments on LJ and myspace blogs, and I appreciate that. WHen one of my (former) friends really hurt me, I vented on LJ and some comments helped me with advice.

The family stuff.... it's also just venting. I don't know how many times you have gotten into a fight with someone and needed to vent afterwards because it hurt you. It's like you need to get it out somewhere.

I delete all the history on my computer, and have it protected so my parents can't see anything. As for other parents, I'll run that risk, I doubt any of my friends would tell their parents, and I only have one friend whose parents might actually check his computer.

I'm getting to know a lot of great people through the internet, especially by posting my innermost thoughts, so I'll take the good with the bad. I almost never give out any personal information until talking with them on them phone.

I delete all the history on my computer, and have it protected so my parents can't see anything. As for other parents, I'll run that risk, I doubt any of my friends would tell their parents, and I only have one friend whose parents might actually check his computer.

I'm getting to know a lot of great people through the internet, especially by posting my innermost thoughts, so I'll take the good with the bad. I almost never give out any personal information until talking with them on them phone.
I'm not sure how old you are. But my daughter is 14 and whether she thinks so or not, she needs to be careful of what she puts out there. I'm not the only parent that keeps tabs on what his/her children are doing on the internet. Too much potential for real trouble there.

I'm 16. I'd never meet with anyone without first making sure they're real anyways. I've dealt with predators before, sometimes its hard to tell if someone is one or not, but usually it becomes noticeable after while. I'm not really extremely concerned at this point, there's not many predators on MySpace, and it's very tough to fake a profile on there.

I just did a search on my town and a zillion 18 year old girls came up...just in my town alone. All cute, too.

God...I wish there was something like this when I was a kid!! (I have to admit, I'm jealous.) We really had to work hard at finding a girlfriend. Now, it's just click on a girl's pic, and away you go. Growing up in a small town where there wasn't much to do (thus being harder to meet people), this would've come in hardy.

How do you know they are 18? I think you have to be at least 16 to create a profile there, so the 13 year olds lie and say they are 16 or older.

Yep, as the mom of a 13 year old, I can sympathize with Trish on this.

I was telling a friend's daughter, who is 14 that she needs to watch what she puts on her LJ and Myspace (cellphone #'s and pics) because anyone can find this stuff. Even if you are diligent about making it private or giving little info, your friends may not be. I have found much info about my daughter's friends and friend's kids from reading other people's stuff.

Personally, I think it is a little weird searching for a significant other and/or friends on a website, but that's just me.I don't know how old you are, but once I got out of college (and had just broken up with my girlfriend), it was a lot harder to meet people. This was in 1990, so the internet wasn't really around, but if it was, I think I would've used it for this.

Plus...and I'm not saying you do this, since I don't know you...some guys will walk up to a woman in a bar and ask her out, solely based on her looks. What does he know about HER? Whereas, if someone writes something online, you at least get an idea of what that person is about. Even if they're lying about themselves (which women in bars can also do), you can gather a lot of info just by HOW someone writes and the things they say. It's just an easier way to weed out people you'd have nothing in common with, and also a way for you to notice people that you may not have noticed if you saw them at a club, or whatever.

To be honest, in my case, most of the people I would be compatable with were probably staying at home like I did!! (Yeah...I was and am a geek.) Pre-internet, how would you ever meet those people?

Anyway, to each his/her own. Just my take on this.

myspace will actually delete your account if you are under 16 and they find out. I wish this was enforced more though. It should not be a hangout for kids

Well said. A few years ago, my daughter had a friend who, upon getting her drivers license, actually scanned the license and posted it in her LiveJournal!
It wasn't until a few friends clued her into the stupidity of posting a photo with address and drivers license number on it that she deleted the post. That's identity theft just waiting to happen.

I also can't believe how many articles I've read recently that talk about people getting fired from their jobs for things they've posted in their "private" online journals.

How about that girl who wants to stab "Alex something" in the eye with a really hot french fry? That's pretty serious, just shows how immature some people really are; her and that Alex kid, because she's not saying that just because he's a good little boy.

Yea, I have a huge "What I hate" section on my MySpace. I don't mention specific names from my school, considering 95% of my friends list would have no idea who they are, and plus, I'd probably get beaten by all of them in a group in school. But I do imply that I hate certain people, and specifically mention certain types of people that I can't stand (I definitely imply I hate the majority of my school though - I even have Trumbull High listed as one of my hates, saying how I can't stand it there).

But I have gone off on public rants on the internet about the people in my school. I didn't mention names, but they all knew who I was talking about. And some of them noticed, which made me all the more happier.

As for MySpace, it's one of the greatest sites out there (and so is LiveJournal). Some of the people I talk to most are people I've met on MySpace/LiveJournal (many of them I haven't even met in person - yet it still seems like we've been friends in person for a long time). Hell, just about all of the people I relate to most I've met on LiveJournal (considering LJ is a little more personal and more anynomous until you talk to the person directly, you tend to find peope you can really relate to well on there - although I have met a few people I relate to well on MySpace too).

Don't get me wrong, I didn't go to high school in a bubble. There were cliques, and I didn't belong to the "popular" group and frankly didn't want to, because I had nothing in common with them.

When did you email him?

A big problem with that website is that (from what I understand), there's only one person answering all the emails (technical, abuse, etc), and there are a lot of people emailing him daily. And he also has to fix all the technical bugs and whatnot with that site. So it could take a while before you get a response for it.

When did you email him?

A big problem with that website is that (from what I understand), there's only one person answering all the emails (technical, abuse, etc), and there are a lot of people emailing him daily. And he also has to fix all the technical bugs and whatnot with that site. So it could take a while before you get a response for it.
This was back in December of last year.

I was checking my daughter's computer and saw this site where she set up this account. I didn't like the site one bit, and I emailed the guy telling him of her age (she was 13), and never heard back from him. They don't give a damn. So I monitor it. When I see something I don't like, I make her delete it.

That's what I do too. I told my daughter no pictures are to be posted and that she has to make sure her friends don't post pics of her or our family either. I know one of her friends had pics of her which were removed, so I guess she's listening. Also, no cell phone or home phone numbers.

Yea, I have a huge "What I hate" section on my MySpace. I don't mention specific names from my school, considering 95% of my friends list would have no idea who they are, and plus, I'd probably get beaten by all of them in a group in school. But I do imply that I hate certain people, and specifically mention certain types of people that I can't stand (I definitely imply I hate the majority of my school though - I even have Trumbull High listed as one of my hates, saying how I can't stand it there).

But I have gone off on public rants on the internet about the people in my school. I didn't mention names, but they all knew who I was talking about. And some of them noticed, which made me all the more happier.I have a question. Why would you spend so much time an effort making a public statement about people you hate? If you hate them, they shouldn't be worth the time or effort to make a big stink about it. I hated 95% of my preppy stuck up school but I never gave a sh*t about them or cared what they thought. The only energy I wasted on them was raising a finger. And maybe an occasion "go f*ck yourself".

When you graduate you won't think about or care about any of them. They'll go about their lives and you'll go about yours. Trust me, they ain't worth even mentioning. I'm sure whoever is seeing the things you're writing is having a nice little chuckle and a certain degree of satisfaction with how much they get to you. Don't give it to them. You seem like a pretty unique individual who has no interest in being like everyone else. Part of that is not caring about those who do spend their lives trying to "fit in" and trying so hard to make it known you are like that can be considered part of the realm we call a "poser".

Yeah, I never had problems with anyone save for one or two people briefly. I was too busy hanging and going out with friends while working on graduating to worry about starting up a beef with someone over something that's probably not worth starting a conflict over. Unless it's your girlfriend...

The only reason I do it is because I know it gets to them. They're the type that can't be criticized, they're too dependant on their "status" as "popular." All day, I'm surrounded by people saying "isn't she so hot?" about sluts that are only hot because of how much damn make-up they wear, and the moment I said, "nah, look past the make-up, she's hideous" I get jumped on for being "gay" (plus, really, after that hot Saturday night, when you wake up and are lying naked right next to her, all of that nice pretty makeup will be worn off... but that's regardless. :lol: ). I just got to the point where it annoyed me, and where I figured out that these people get driven over the top when they find out that everyone doesn't like them. They think everyone wants to be like them (hell, one of them went up to me once and said, "hey, you gotta go shopping at like Abercrombie, and then go out and buy some Air Force Ones, they'll make you look hella cool" - and the sad thing is that is a direct quote).

I'm not the type to go hunting down those I hate and telling it to their faces, nor am I the type to go around to everyone saying, "hey, don't you hate him so much?" Personally, I can't stand those types of people either. Nor do I mention specific names on MySpace, or any other site. That's just begging for attention, really, I can't stand that either.

Not to knock your opinion..but I think AF1s are alright. They're a nice looking plain shoe that doesn't say "Reebok Classic" or "K-Swiss" on it, but if someone is saying you'll get more attention because of it then they're full of crap because it seems like every 4 people you look at in school are wearing them. I don't know much 'bout Abercrombie though..

I agree and disagree.

NYYRules#1 is perhaps the most intelligent 16 year old I have ever sort-of met. I use sort of because I have only met him via the forum.

However, what I pick up from his "no interest in being like everyone else" is that he wants to be like everyone else. Sadly, I knew kids in high school just like that. They didn't have the trendy clothes, or listen to the trendy bands. Therefore the rich snob always degraded them. So the unpopular kids did the opposite of what everyone else was doing. Just starved for attention. Positive or negative, it didn't matter.

This is exactly what it is.. look..


That's just begging for attention, really, I can't stand that either.

Which contradicts:


The only reason I do it is because I know it gets to them

EG - Giving yourself attention in a negative light.

See, I was always friends with everyone. I made everyone feel welcome. If there was a party, I would take one of the so called "losers." Let them have fun.

NYY - Look, you're a smart kid, but you need to mature. Sure, there are the people who think their popularity matters. In reality, those who think they're the King/Queen of the school, most people don't like them. Except those that are like them. I went to a Preppy school and the majority of the kids are good. Don't judge them. Get to know them. Be yourself and they will accept you. Don't go around trying to piss them off. You'll learn in due time. Plus, those rich kids who look down on you, will be kissing your ass at some point in life.

I was well liked, but I wasn't trendy by any means. Why was I? Because I did my own thing and had a good personality. I was a rocker, who hated Dave Matthews, I smoked, I bought my clothes at Filenes, I didn't have a girlfriend... but I was liked. I was just me... people like that. Just don't make a point of trying to irritate people.

Remember this... "The toes you step on today, may be connected to the ass you have to kiss tomorrow."

That goes for you and for them

It's less starving for attention as it is transforming it really. I'm not the type of person to dress a certain way just to stand out. Personally, I just speak my mind about certain things which annoy me, or which I can't stand. There are some good preppy people at my school, and I'm even friends with a few of them, but most of the people at my school aren't good people. Just yesterday, a whole group of people decided to stash their cigarettes in different people's hoodies in my study hall, and sadly, I was wearing a hoodie, listening to music and doing homework, and not paying attention, and then I reach back and feel a pack of cigs. Eh, it's a great way to waste money if anything (even though they were going to try to get us all suspended for having cigs in school, but luckily I felt them before anybody noticed anything). Sure, that's a small sample, but this kind of stuff goes on everyday there.

Everybody will get attention at some point in their life. It's unavoidable. Even in a school of 2100 students, people will notice you at some point. They might even notice you for never noticing you before (another example from yesterday, in my Algebra class, some kid on the other side of the room answered a question, we all looked over and just about said "who is that? was he ever in this class before?", and then all of us started trying to figure out who the heck he was. still have no clue). Attention is inevitable. I personally couldn't care if its positive, negative, neutral, or anything. I don't look to make enemies, but when you put 2100 teens together, there's bound to be some looking for you to be an enemy. I'm just not afraid to speak what's on my mind.

That being said, I've gotten many comments from people I don't even know at my own school that said they agree with me. So its worked for positive, negative, and no attention at all. No matter what somebody says, it will draw attention. And if I have a soapbox to stand on, I'm bound to use it to the fullest. If it draws negative attention, so be it, I doubt I'd ever associate with those people anyways, and I doubt most of them would ever get along with me.

Myspace is just the latest fad. Everyone was big into livejournal before that.

LiveJournal is still 10 times better, but it's much more private (at least for me). I only add people I don't know in real life on there, and try to only add people I know I can relate to well on there (specific reasons why that is, to call it a "secretive and private" journal is an understatement). I've met a lot of great people on there though.

However, MySpace is the ultimate way to meet new people, due to the sheer volume of people on there, the accesibility of everyone's profiles, and the fact that it's not anonymous, and it's harder to fake something and get away with it on there than on most sites. I've met some people that I can truly call some of my greatest friends on there (and LJ). Many of them live down in Florida, out in California, many in Michigan (for some reason Florida and Michigan have the highest number of people I regularly talk to over the internet), even as far as Britain, Russia, Germany, Japan, and Australia. That's the great thing about the internet, and specifically websites with millions of users - you can meet anyone, anywhere, and really get to know people from other places with other different ways of living, some from completely different cultures. I've met people that have never been to New York, and can't even fathom something of its size, and ask me what it's like to live 60 miles away from the city. That's something I'd never get by talking to people in Trumbull, CT. I hate distance and geographical boundaries (and all other boundaries for that matter). There's millions and millions of people out there, why confine yourself to a certain area, to a certain population in a certain location? I've found many people that I can relate to better than anyone I can where I live. I know so many people, especially older people that never grew up with the internet and still haven't really connected with it (so basically, none of you, considering this is an internet forum and all), that criticize the internet and think it's evil and have wrecked the lives of my generation. To me, it's done the exact opposite - instead of having little communities and societies in certain, confined areas, and knowing only people that live around you, we're connecting with people from all over the world, and making a global community, and expanding horizons. Instead of just being able to search a certain area for people like you, with common bonds, we now have millions of people out there. Considering right now MySpace is the biggest (and probably best ever) website for meeting new people, it's really great.

that's what I did with myspace. although it was wierd, the band Vision Of Disorder requested me as a buddy this past weekend. That was cool. :cool:

To be truthful, I signed up for MySpace to get access to some cheerleader at our school's pictures, which I heard included multiple bikini shots. I hadn't heard about MySpace until that, and I needed to sign up to get access to the "View More Pics" section. Of course, by the time I had made a profile, I had just about forgotten about her pictures, but I did remember, and was not disappointed. ;)

But then I quickly became addicted, and the bikini shots of random cheerleader #1 soon became an afterthought (but now I feel the need to go back and see if she has new ones :lol: ). Signing up for MySpace was a good move, if I must say so myself.

I signed up for livejournal a few years back cuz all my friends we're begging me too. I hardly even used it.

That's what happened with myspace for me. I think the last time I was in there was like a month ago. After I started using LJ, even xanga has become like a once-a-month entry kinda thing. :lol: There's just too many of these profile thingees floating around for me to keep up with.

Myspace is tight. I'm hooked on that. Soo much more too it plus ya meet new people.

As for the parents who won't let their kids have one. Get a clue. Predators ain't on myspace cuz you can't fake a profile on there without it being obvious. Predators hang out in chat rooms where they can hide themselevs better. As far as giving out info like age and all that, who cares. You do that in the real world. You gonna follow your kids to school everyday to make sure they don't get with the wrong crowd? Theres harldy anyone over the age of 25 on there so quit taking your kids fun away from them. You're paranoid over something you know nothing about.

Not only MySpace.com, but the entire internet should be moderated because it is being used for things other than what it was designed for! And anyway, people don't seem to have a problem with the government "moderating" what you watch on TV or listen to on the radio... The one thing, in our country, that should be moderated is the internet. Far too much "bad stuff" on the internet for kids to get into trouble with....

So if some psycho kid is on myspace and they are typing out directions on how to build a pipebomb. There could be a moderator that sees this and either cautions the owner of that profile or bands him/her completely. I know its a crazy example but you get the idea... If you dont agree thats ok. I just like my surroundings... pipebomb free.

Well, Myspace does have moderator's on their site. They check profiles for pornographic pictures and things like that. I'm guessing that they would also be looking for any content that has to do with someone potentially harming someone else.

But, I think Myspace is getting a bad rap here. It's not like there isnt a TON of other websites on the net where you can find out how to build a bomb or where kids can find out how to hide certain things from their parents. It's not like it's the first place where sexual predators have stalked under age kids (Face The Jury, The Dilly, Hot or Not, etc were all far more popular before Myspace put a strangle hold on the whole net community website thing).

Bottom line, they cant stop everyone. Sometimes, hell it should be all the time, it's up to these kid's parents to do some parenting themselves to find out what the hell their kid is doing. If parents want their kids to be 'secure' on the internet, they should use AOL.

He did it a while ago (7/19/2005). To his credit, he's stayed with the site and even though there are constant rumors about how the place is going to turn into a paysite, it's untrue.

There is more ad's on there now, but it's still the same site it was when it started. I dont blame the guy, I'd sell out for that kind of scratch too. I dont think there's a person in here that wouldnt.

My friend's daughter just got into some deep doodoo over something she wrote on her myspace. It wasn't a direct threat, but it some not very nice things wished on a kid she doesn't like. The one who wrote it is 18 and the kid it was about is still in HS so the kid showed it to the police and they said they could arrest my friend's daughter for aggravated harrassment.
Luckily, nothing happened and she took it off her site, but this just shows how kids think they can write anything they want online and it doesn't matter.

A lot of people are asking what the appeal of myspace and friendster and stuff like that are.

I always wished I coulda had a baseball card. Something that had my DOB and some info about me.

Friendster and MySpace let me create a page that's essentially my baseball card. I can put what I've done over the years, what I've been doing lately, etc.

Do I really think anyone cares? Not so much. Its a little like decorating your locker in 6th grade or spending money on a personal ring tone. I guess it has no real PURPOSE but for some reason its fun to express yourself through saying what stuff you like.

But other than tweaking my profile and keeping tabs on my friends, I don't really know what you DO with it. Its not like I'm meeting amazing new people with common interests every single day or anything like that.

I think many people use it as a tool for one night stands. Have you ever read some of the crap some people have on their profiles? Seen some of the pictures? If I had to choose this forum or myspace, I'd HAVE to choose NYYFans mainly because it would do no harm to me. Myspace is freaking scary and full of sin! :eek:
