Back when MySpace was still popular, I was very big on
custom DIV overlay profiles. The death of MySpace
began when they
started enforcing layout changes. Going from
"1.0", to "2.0", to "3.0"
then eventually to a bland,
"basic" profile that everyone hated which
prompted the move
to Facebook. Sadly, Facebook has has always
been bland &
"basic" to start with, and even recently, following the
footsteps as MySpace, forcing layout changes of their own
(timeline & live feed). I guess they didn't learn from
MySpace will always be the better site simply because of the
customization you were able to do when it was allowed.
You were able
to express who you were and have a profile
that stood out from
everyone else's. On Facebook, everyone's
profile is literally the same
which is very boring. Of
course, neither site works the way ithey're
supposed to, with
so many problems and glitches. Everyone is just
the next big social media site to come along that features
best that both offered. Too bad Google+ can't seem to
figure that out.
I had 12 custom profiles on MySpace and only 1 (my official
was left semi-the way I made it. I'm not sure why
mine was allowed to
stay at 1.0, but it's still upsetting
that my other, more popular, 11
profiles weren't. You can
view my original profile on the left, but of
links and features no longer work thanks to MySpace.
created stand-alone pages in this section to preview some of
other layouts I made that are no longer viewable from
also enabled Facebook commenting on them.
