Back in March I blogged about why I stay away from MySpace and even today I still do not have a MySpace account. However, I’ve used Facebook for quite some time now. Here’s why:
- Most of the advertisements on Facebook are not sexually stimulating.
- The layout is organized, uncluttered and gives a sense of uniformity to every user.
- Privacy and security controls are excellent and very customizable.
- I love the variety of groups and the potential they create for interaction.
Personally, I’m glad to see the shift moving from MySpace to Facebook. Facebook seems like a much cleaner and safer environment. And now that Facebook registration is open to the general public, there’s really no advantage to stick with MySpace except that it has many more registered users. Give it some time, though, and the Facebook phenomenon will soon catch up.
If you’re a Facebook user, feel free to add me as a friend. Or, join the Youth Specialties group I created.
