Ok - someone explain to me why MySpace is so good, and why I should create an account?
Personally - I've never been fond of the idea of an online profile where I write a blog etc. Having a diary on the internet is just too emo for my liking "Dear Diary, mood: apathetic. Blah blah blah...ohh internet diary...you're my best friend."
I associate MySpace with suicidal attention seeking emo's.
Talking to a friend of mine last night - she says that I should get a MySpace profile, and start networking with other DJ's and Producers in my area. Plus I can then start networking globally through ah.fm's myspace site.
This all sounds good - but I just can't get past the fact that having an online "prozac diary" is going to make me feel all queer and full of teenage angst.
I guess - I don't wanna turn into one of these: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHTAT_UPm18
So - someone give me the 411 on MySpace. What is the general concensus out there? Why should I get one? Is it worth it? Will it help me network? Would you guys add me as your "ZOMG - online friends"? Like..I don't wanna open a MySpace account and then have no friends. That's just sad. "Look at me...my best friend is the internet and this web server." LAME!
I have real friends...maybe I can state that on my account. "I'm just doing this because someone said its good. To meet me IRL - come to Brisbane and we can swap photos, diary notes etc".
So what's the Myspace deal? Ghey or YAY?
