Facebook Beats Myspace Worldwide For the First Time Ever

Do You Use Facebook or MySpace?

The latest news from ComScore reveals that Facebook is beating MySpace worldwide for the first time. I've been trying to figure out why, necessarily, in terms of why people choose either site to social network.

I myself have profiles on both sites, as I signed up for a MySpace page in 2003, and when Facebook started, when it was only accessible to those with school emails (which I didn't have anymore and was a little turned off by that requirement), I waited awhile, but eventually caved since I had friends on Facebook (which is why I still begrudgingly keep both profiles). What about you? Are you supporting Facebook or MySpace with your usage?

i have both facebook and myspace, but i don't go on myspace that much. the only thing i really like about it is that you can be more creative with the layout and stuff, but facebook is better for keeping in touch with people.

I still have Myspace but since I found Sugar I rarely use myspace. I will log on to check my comments like once in a blue moon and reply to them and thats about it. I used to update my background, photo, etc. all the time but I haven't changed it in like forever.

Facebook FTW! I used to hate it, but overtime I've become fond of it. The lack of customization is actually what appeals to me. I hate the ridiculous layouts, poor HTML, and tacky color combinations that Myspace offers, as well as having crappy music that people hide and you can never shut off. While some of the FB applications and invites are annoying, Myspace has incorporated them too making it even more evil. I log into my Myspace once every week or so just to check up on the few friends I have who haven't moved to Facebook. Facebook also just generally seems to be a little less sketchy, but I'm sure in time it'll find it's fair share of creepers just as Myspace did.

Facebook is so dull and bland-looking. If you want to send somebody some features of the site, it will require you to install it first. And after installation, you have to send them to a couple of your friends. That's tedious. And a bummer. So I don't log in to Facebook anymore. I used to have a MySpace account but people there just don't get it. I wrote "married" on the status, yet I receive a lot of messages and invitations for relationships. Plus, there is this fear of hackers, scammers, perverts, and hawkers. I cancelled MySpace. I regularly and log in everyday at Friendster. It's where I have most of my contacts anyway---the Philippines. And I found one new site god for networking both social and professional/business--Moli.

I totally agree with darkangel. It's so addictive. And also, (some) people are there just for showing off. Like, look how popular I am. How hot I am. How cool my house is. Look how hot my man is.. and so on :D I've been many of those kinds of websites, NO MORE I say.

I started to have a Facebook the day after they announced Facebook for high school students. Then a month later, a childhood friend IMed me, asking if I had a MySpace. I hated MySpace, but I decided to start one so I did. I was on it mostly because my friends were into MySpace then. More importantly, I met my two boyfriends through MySpace (my ex added me and I added my current boyfriend, whom I've been with for a little more than a year). As MySpace became more creepy and annoying with messages from pervs, spam, advertisements, and typical teenage drama, I slowly moved onto Facebook when they introduced applications last year. I go on MySpace once in a while, while I'm on Facebook for two seconds to check my profile and my boyfriend's profile LOL.

FACEBOOK is so much BETTER!! :) I'm so serious about this subject haha. I've had it since it started in like 2004, and I miss when only college kids had it, but oh well. It's still better than myspace; on there I have more friends that are bands or celebrities than my actual friends, and I only keep it because my two sisters have that and not facebook.

Facebook. Myspace creeps me out with all of the pervs that have been going on there. I feel more secure using Facebook.

TidalWave, it's quite possible I'm misinformed about the deletion of the accounts. But I still don't like Facebook's data collection methods; it's true you can opt out, but that really rubs me the wrong way. I feel like this kind of collection service should be opt-IN. Just leaves a really bad taste in my mouth.

I guess I am in the minority since I like Myspace better. I have an FB account which I rarely update.

I can't stand FaceBook. They're trying to get me to share my personal information with those aps every two minutes. I wish my friends would wise up to the scam.

I use myspace to keep in touch with my college friends and facebook for work, since I work in higher ed. All my students are on facebook. I would be lost without facebook. I rather it than myspace any day of the week!

I use both, but I prefer facebook for three reasons. 1) I hate the customized pages of myspace users. Most of them are designed poorly. 2) Facebook I think is more user friendly. 3) There is more to do on Facebook (i.e. applications).

Facebook. Basically everyone at my school has one and it's a lot more convenient (and easier on the eye with the minimalistic layout).

I hate MySpace. I tolerate Facebook because it allows me to keep in touch with people back home and some of the tests etc are funny but it's getting more and more annoying and idiotic, like the recent "sell your friends as pets" and the "coolest person contest". Juvenile.

I've got both, but I've never used MySpace much. First it was because I definitely prefered the LiveJournal way of having a community, and then it was because the layout at Myspace was bugging the crap out of me. I prefer Facebook, because it has a cleaner layout - fewer ads - and I can hook up with people I've lost contact with under their real names, and not have to try to guess their screen names.
