We All Techie Up In Here

Lots to cover here today people, so let's get right down to it! First order of business is, of course, Choose and Defend Wednesday. Inspired by all that is out there in the wild frontier of social networking I am here today to ask for your preference. You must have one and I know you can defend it. So, given these two choices, what is your favorite social networking site?

MySpace
or
Facebook

Please Choose one or the other and Defend said choice. I know you have your reasons, so lets hear them! Yo!

Also...I'm taking a couple days off here and you know how that goes. My internet time may be sporadic. If, you know, you care or anything. (wah!) Okay, I am clearly feel a bit goofy. It has been one of those weeks.

What else...don't forget to post this Saturday! Play. It's fun. The word this week is Alien, chosen by AlienCG.

Oh, and do me a huuuuge favor. When you get a chance...will you turn me into What Fresh Hell Is This? I am not My Boring Life anymore...even though yeah, it is still me and um, my life, which is boring.

Alright! Thanks!

I have to say MySpace. I follow a few bands on there and they don't require a real name be used.

You will be missed by the blogging world, but you deserve the time off. By the way, the link is already changed.

Facebook for me. Site design, speed, simplicity, and most of my friends & familia are on FB. I also believe myspace may more inviting to hackers, as I was getting some adult site solicitations from a friend and knew perfectly well that he didn't send them. That particular friend closed his myspace account and never went back.

Facebook just because there is so much more you can do. It is time consumer for sure once you get into it. I love it.

AlienCG: The music part is fun, although I feel cruel denying all those bands access to the light of my friendship :-)
Also, thank you for being all the ball with changing my link. You rule.

3GirlKnight: Thanks for stopping over! I visited your blog and it looks like a great start.
It is nice to be on a site where you know most of your friends and family are.

MrManuel: You are a Facebook guy extraordinaire :-) I have a friend or two who are waaaayyy to into some of the random apps, but it can definitely be a lot of fun.

Everyone: Speak up! I know you have an opinion and aren't afraid to use it! MySpace or Facebook? Why?

Tara said...

Thank you, I was wondering who was going to be the next chooser and what the next word would be! "Alien", eh? I'll see what I can find.

We will miss you, don't be too sporadic! Enjoy your time off, though.

Okay now for my decision. Although I liked the idea of MySpace at first and the fact that my profile could play music, I choose Facebook because it rarely freezes on me and I've found so many of my old friends on there.

Pamela said...

Well, your life isn't boring. And I've always had you marked as Laura if that's ok. And Facebook because I'm old and everyone else is there too. ;-)

Churlita said...

I have both. The only reason I still have Myspace is for band information.

I choose FAcebook because there aren't nearly as many creepers on there and most of my friends and people I haven't heard from since grade school are on there.

Tara: Thanks, even this one day of not working (without being ill) was nice...three more!
You make a good point about the differences between MySpace and Facebook...it does become kind of a music vs friends thing.

NoRegrets: Thank you...and of course, you can list me however you like, even by name :-)
haha! You're not old! But you can still choose Facebook, youngstah.

Churlita: It is so weird. Beginning yesterday, I received a series of very, very random friend requests on Facebook. Felt like being on MySpace and it kinda worried me.

Everyone: If I am counting correctly, Facebook is totally kicking MySpace's social networking butt with a score of 5 to 1. With me, 6 to 1. Although maybe I will mildly dislike them both if I keep getting weird Facebook requests.....

As a music listener and fan I would choose My Space. To keep in touch with people I think facebook has it.

laura b. said...

FW: That seems to be a good way to break it down. And now, I'm following you on Twitter too :-)

Sebastien said...

Facebook for me. Prefer the design and site layout.

laura b. said...

Sebastien: Another Facebook fan. Even with the split votes, I think Facebook takes this one :-)

Sebastien said...

Are you on facebook?

laura b. said...

Sebastien: Yes! If you're there, you can find me under the name Lau Ra or the email addy labookn@gmail.com
