Back when MySpace was still popular, I was very big on
creating 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 same
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
pure 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 waiting for
the next big social media site to come along that features
the 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
profile) 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 course some
links and features no longer work thanks to MySpace.
created stand-alone pages in this section to preview some of
the other layouts I made that are no longer viewable from
MySpace. I've also enabled Facebook commenting on them.
