I Missed The Entire Myspace Era


Rumour has it Myspace is going to lay off at least 150 of its around 400 employees.  I missed the entire Myspace era.

I never got Myspace, and never created a profile.  Myspace was the biggest thing in social networking, and everyone seemed to flock to it, but I hated it.  I truly hated it.

It was the worst designed site I'd ever seen.  It seemed intentionally ugly and cumbersome.  I couldn't comprehend the appeal to anyone over the age of 13.  I once delved into the ugly world of Myspace when helping Custom share his music, and that experience was horrible.

As recently as 2006 I referred to it as the Myspace beast but today I never hear about it unless they're laying off a bunch of people.  It seems the Myspace era came and went and I successfully managed to resist.


Were you ever on MySpace?
