#1. For kids/teenagers with low self esteem to gain 10,000 friends they've never met and to boost their ego. They often flaunt how many friends they have, take pictures in which the captions demand others to spam, and in some cases start a lot of un-needed and completely ridiculous internet drama. Many of the pathetic children who have become "popular" on this website are not only too young to have an account, but they claim that "haters make them more famous" and they will jump through hoops just to get attention.
Most of them are addicted, have over 1,000 friends they never talk to, post pointless bulletins, belong to whore trains/perfection trains, and think that they are a model because of how extremely flawless they look (due to heavy photoshop) and their friends take pictures of them in the backyard.
#2. For bands to become well known. Many musicians have myspace accounts in order to spreas the word of their music. Once they reach a certain level of the popularity, though, they will often be hacked and harrassed by people with no lives. Some fans of the band even pretend to know the band by adding the band members personal accounts and posting frequent comments on their page saying things like "OMG I can't wait to see you again! When you commin' to town?" or "lAsT NiGhT wAs lyK sO fUnNnn!!!!!!"
Myspace was once meant to be a place for meeting new people, for mature adults to meet potential partners and such. Now the only matchmaking occuring is between two "scene/emo" kids who've never met eachother and are only 12.
"I'll lyk totally love you forever if you comment my pictures to a billion!"
"FREEZE THIS HO'S MYSPACE ACCOUNT SHE SAID SHE DIDN'T THINK I WAS PRETTY I KNO I'M PRETTY I AM I AM I AM TELL ME I AM."
"Dude, Kiki Kannibal added me to her friends list on Myspace!"
"She invented stripes!!!"
"Didn't zebras do that?"
"i TOTALLY know mattgood!!!!!!!!!! we talk on myspace soooo much!"
it has become an epidemic
be cautined: it is addictive
(pshhht. i encourage you hack into the site and change it to myspace, a place for scene whores)
You eventually deleted your account because you decided you want to graduate high school with some dignity.
Do yourself a favor. Delete your MySpace.
Myspace itself is a sad thing indeed. You can friend thousands of people that you rarely talk to, comment on their boring, whiny, upper middle-class lives, and attempt to find a fellow myspace emo boy/girl to date/cyber. Most myspace victims never do meet their online friends and sadly, drop out of school to combat the Myspace addiction.
Myspace emo boy: **BONER'D!**
