In this day and age, very few people have not heard of Myspace. Myspace is a social networking website. MySpace users create their own webpages and then in turn, invite "friends" who can create their own MySpace pages. This creates a huge network of people linked together by Myspace pages. MySpace is also used by many different people from your everyday person to celebrities and even politicians.
Myspace was launched in August of 2003 as a way to compete with the website Friendster which had launched in 2002. It only took 10 days to get Myspace off the ground and on the Internet. In the beginning, the first users were actual Myspace employees and they held contests to see who could get the most users signed up. Many of the employees were also eUniverse users already, so they quickly got the nearly 20-million eUniverse users to sign up to Myspace which very quickly moved it to the top of the social networking sites.
Because the website was doing so well, the owners initially thought they could possibly charge for the service. However, this idea was quickly overruled as they realized that keeping the service free would help in attracting and keeping more users.
The MySpace login page is located directly at the main MySpace page.
The MySpace login requires the user's email address and password with options to request a new password if the password cannot be remembered. There are also options to log into the mobile version of MySpace to speed up things.
A Myspace webpage contains what is called a user profile. The user profile consists of the blog where the user can tell people about themselves, upload videos they enjoy and tell people what they doing at the time, also called their status updates. They can even add mood status updates along with an emoticon that shows if they are happy, sad, etc.
Below the profile section is the comment section. This is probably one of the most favorite sections of Myspace users because here is where your friends can leave you comments or links to others website or just to say hello and see how the Myspace user is doing.
Another favorite section of Myspace users is the music section. This is where you can add your favorite music along with a music player. When a Myspace friend comes to the webpage, the music player automatically launches and starts playing the music. This is a nice feature because it allows the Myspace user to create and share their favorite music through music playlists.
Bulletins are another feature of Myspace pages. A bulletin is a way of posting a comment or event that the Myspace user would like to post to all of their friends. They are often used to send favorite emails or chain letters. Bulletins are deleted within 10 days.
Another feature of Myspace is the ability to join Groups. It’s a great way for the Myspace user to join groups that he or she is interested in along with other Myspace users. There they can discuss their interests on their own message board and webpage.
Myspace users can also post their favorite videos from Youtube. On Myspace, the user has the ability to embed their favorite Youtube video right into the webpage. This is a nice feature because the other friends can play the video without having to click on a link to get to it.
