My Space at MySpace

I’ve been meaning to check out Myspace for myself for the last few months and this weekend I actually took the 10 minutes necessary to set myself up an account at

I’m not sure what I was expecting from it but it all seems a little underwhelming so far.

I know I’m not the target audience really and haven’t given it a chance but coming at it after blogging for 3 years on other services leaves me feeling like it’s such a substandard service. I guess the key of it is the masses of people and the social interaction they are apparently having – but in terms of it’s features – I’m surprised how simple and featureless it is (unless there is some section I’m not seeing with all the cool stuff).

Anyway – I’ll play around with it over the next few days and see what I can see. I guess it’s just good to get a feel for what people are using.

Social Networking Video

I just watched this very amusing video on Social Networking (particularly MySpace).

Found via Small Business Trends


ShoutwireThe Zero Boss has a mini review of Shoutwire – a social bookmarking site that is similar to Digg but that covers a wider array of topics (Digg is just technology related).

It could be a useful tool if it takes off.
