    A year ago, I woman I know suggested I create a myspace page...and I did. I didn't do much with it up until a couple months ago. When I started looking around, I found a ton of old friends on there from high school and college...

    There is a stereotype out there, but basically you can get out of it what you want. I use it to keep up with old friends, check out new bands, and that's pretty much it. I don't surf around looking to hit on half-naked jail bait, so I rarely run into that element when I'm on.

    Oh, and I'm 33...

    I have a Facebook and a MySpace, but I'm on Facebook a lot more nowadays. MySpace has gotten a little too creepy for my tastes, but a lot of my friends are on there so I'm keeping it.

    The one thing I hate about MySpace is all the friend requests I get from those fake porn stars or whatever they are.

    They just want to give you a free iPhone.

    That shit gets on my nerves, too.

    And my friends who have had their accounts phished are idiots for not changing their passwords.

    I know a lot of friends from "real life" that I keep up with now primarily through MySpace. They are (and I am) scattered all around the country, so we don't get to see each other; and because I work at night and in a different time zone than most of them, our schedules conflict too much to talk on the phone regularly.

    I've also met a lot of friends on MySpace who I see all the time in "real life."

    But don't let that stop you from having a superiority complex on an online message board about people who are losers "IN REAL LIFE." ::)

    I'll tell you, why do all those 20- and 30-something journalists waste their time on that Sports Journalists message board? All it is is a community of people bragging about how big their schlong is, who they nailed up the ass last night and talking about their drinking exploits. And pretending to be Scoop Jackson.

    When Facebook first came out, there was a dude at the paper who claimed he got a bit of tail off there after girls "poked" him. Never saw pictures of the pokers.

    Facebook is less creepy. Sxy, you can view others' profiles if you are at the same school/in the same geographical network, too.

    Of the belief that if people from your wayback machine want to find you, you'll be found. You don't need one of these things for that.

    Hey, whatever makes you happy.

    Don't act like a pissant if other people think it's weird.
