Which one do you use?

I have both, although I have really gotten to like Facebook a lot more. MySpace is more about layouts and graphics and has become a problem for spam (mostly porn). Facebook is more bland in regards to layouts, which is better in a way, but I guess it depends on the person.

I have a Facebook account but rarely ever log on to it anymore. I was on there a lot when I first created it but not so much these days.

Just a few weeks ago I made a Facebook profile.

I thought it seemed a little juvenile for a 40 year old guy to do it but some friends talked me in to it and its great, I have run into so many people I haven't seen in years its amazing!!

BTW I am a member of the Chris Sabo and Barry Larkin Facebook fan club.

I prefer Facebook, times 100. I deleted my Myspace, due to the porn and clutter and all the rest of the crap. It's easy to get a virus. Any of you with a facebook, feel free to add me.

I'm still more familiar with Myspace though.

Yeah, I thought it seemed weird at first too. I had 70 or so high school classmates contact me the first couple of days so that was cool. I haven't seen most of them since graduation almost 20 years ago.

I have an old Myspace floating around, but I'm on Facebook constantly.

In fact, on Facebook right now. :)

I shudder at the thought of Myspace anymore.

I'm not huge on the whole social networking sites in general, but I can see how they can be engrossing to some.

I have a Facebook though, for what it's worth.

I never liked the look of Myspace pages. Since there is a stigma about adult men there being viewed as pedophiles, I never joined up there.

I'm using Facebook for friends and family and LinkedIn for professional contacts.

The average age of Facebook users has increased a lot in the last few months. I've been amazed how many of my high school and college classmates are popping up on it who weren't there last fall. Here are a couple of recent articles discussing the trend.

Facebook, less clutter.

Someone should make a RedsZone facebook group.

I was just talked into joining Facebook in the last week or so and it seems pretty cool. I've chatted with a couple of old high-school chums and it just seems more enjoyable than I expected though maybe that's the newness of it all.

I haven't yet done myspace figuring my website is enough. But I did just join facebook about a week ago. I'm still trying to find my sea-legs with it. It's kinda cool because you get to quickly interact with people that you normally don't have the time to call.. it feels less intrusive to send a note. So far, I kinda like it.

I use Facebook. I actually tried to avoid both Facebook and MySpace for quite some time but I eventually got into Facebook over the last few months, at least a little bit.

I did create a RedsZone group as was suggested in the thread as I had a few minutes to kill. Just search "RedsZone" on Facebook and it should pop right up. It'd be nice to still talk baseball if the site goes black temporarily as it does sometimes happen with big news coming in.

Yeah, that about sums it up for me.
Like others, I have found many old friends via Facebook and have found it to be quite fun. And I like not having to wait for five minutes for a profile to open, only to have my speakers blown out.
Sure on MySpace I get PMs every day from women half my age who are way out of my league...but, golly gee, none of them seem to reply to my replies.

EDIT: Oh, yeah, great idea on the Redszone group. I'm in.

I liked Facebook for a while, but recently, all my relatives found me there, so now I'm thinking about starting a new account with fake information. I don't want people to find me just by knowing where I graduated and about how old I am. Sorry, I'm just kind of venting. I definitely prefer Facebook over MySpace.

I'm going to check out the Redszone group now!

A friend of me hounded me to get facebook so to shut him up I finally signed up and am hooked. I seem to find people I thought were lost for ever every week. It is great in that sense. Will sign up for the Redszone group.

It's really amazing to me how far and how fast Facebook has grown. It has now been around 5 years. I joined at the beginning of my freshman year in September 2004 and when I searched my high school I found like 50 other students on. Now, when searching my high school I can find thousands of people. Connecting with people that either moved or graduated is a really cool thing.

Been a Facebook member since the day it migrated to UC. I mostly just use it to keep in contact with friends. Way too many people take it and MySpace way too seriously.

I think the only problem I have in people knowing my real name and seeing my picture on FaceBook is this: People will now realize that my nose is actually larger than the character in my avatar.

I just joined the Redszone group on Facebook.

I actually credit Facebook with letting me get in touch with loads of high school, college and former work friends I hadn't talked to in ages.

I just joined the Facebook group. I'm surprised at the number of female in the group. Then again, I was expecting one at the most, so I guess it wasn't too difficult to surprise me.

I just like this messageboard more, less intrusive. Am I crazy?

Maybe, but if you're crazy, it has nothing to do with thinking Facebook is intrusive. Facebook is intrusive.

That's the way I roll, too.

I very deliberately don't have any friends on Facebook whom I don't know offline. I also don't have more than a handful of message board friends who I know by name offline. Since I have tons of contact information visible in my Facebook profile and none visible on message boards, I like having zero overlap between the two.

I have both, but I haven't logged into myspace for a year. I need to delete it, but that would require logging in.

I'm on facebook just about every day.
