MySpace is the most popular social networking service (SNS) out there, with over 100 million user accounts and over 80% of SNS activity on the net. It’s also consistently ranked as one of the top 10 most-visited websites in the entire world by Alexa. Most people with two-thirds of a brain can figure out that MySpace sucks as soon as they log into the site for the first time, yet it continues to maintain its popularity. If you have a friend who likes to use MySpace, please refer them to this handy list of reasons why MySpace Sucks:
1. It is full of thousands upon thousands of spammer user accounts: If you use MySpace, you’re probably aware of the fact that you get a lot of friend requests from random people and music groups you’ve never met or heard of. This is because thousands of YouTube user accounts are maintained by spammers who use friend-adding programs to automatically add as many friends as possible. When they get thousands of friends, they post spam bulletins advertising stuff. MySpace has failed to take appropriate action to curb this massive abuse.
2. The site is slow: Anyone trying to use the site can expect a lot of messages such as “Server Too Busy,” “Sorry! an unexpected error has occurred. This error has been forwarded to MySpace’s technical group,” and so on. This is because MySpace’s servers are not powerful enough to host the traffic the site gets. Those spam bots use up a lot of site resources!
3. User-created profile pages look terrible and cause technical errors: Customizable profile pages are a nice thing, but when you allow customization to the point of having users completely f*ck up the appearance of pages and crash the browsers of those visiting profiles, your site sucks.
4. It is full of spyware: Industry experts have warned that MySpace is a “hotbed” for spyware and other malicious programs that can infect your computer.
5. It lets users crap-up their profiles with tons of videos and music: Nobody wants to see your favorite 20 music videos or listen to your terrible band’s music.
6. “Celebrity” user accounts: There are thousands of fake celebrity user accounts set up by their fans on MySpace. Why do people actually add these idiotic accounts to their friend lists? Is there something amusing about this? Frankly, it sucks.
7. Ugly advertisements everywhere: I guess if you’re already allowing users to make hideously ugly and broken profile pages, throwing hideously ugly and distracting ads all over your site isn’t a problem either.
8. There is no useful search feature: Want to search for your friends? People in your area? People with similar interests? Good luck with that: MySpace’s search tools are absolutely horrible.
9. Security flaws: MySpace has already proven itself extremely vulnerable to hacking, with the most famous case being one last year in which a worm turned thousands of user profiles into redirect links to a 9/11 conspiracy page. It may have not been extremely dangerous, but next time it could be…
10. Bulletins: This useful feature allows users to have their inboxes spammed with thousands of retarded chain letters and ads for bands. Amazing!
11. It is a haven for child molesters and pedophiles.
12. They are anti-human rights: MySpace recently launched a Chinese version of their site, readily agreeing to restrict users from seeing the truth about the Chinese regime’s crimes. Censored/Restricted topics include: religion, politics, Taiwanese independence, the Dalai Lama, and persecution of Falun Gong members.
13. MySpace is owned by NewsCorp: Rupert Murdoch’s evil corporation, which runs Fox News, also owns MySpace.
15. MySpace users are stupid: If the ugly user-created profile pages, blogs full of idiotic and poorly-written crap, and terrible user bands aren’t enough to convince you that most of MySpace’s users are stupid, you can also see this study that shows they are statistically less-educated than users of other social networking sites.
16. MySpace is UGLY!!! I mentioned user-created pages earlier, but even the part of the site that isn’t user profiles looks terrible. [Computer geeks can also tell you that the code under the surface of the site itself is also ugly.]
