What Is MySpace?

MySpace is a “social networking” web site.There are more than 200 social networking web sites in existence, and their success can be largely attributed to the human need for connection with others. For many people, such websites provide a way to extend their real-world circles of friends and acquaintances, or to find other people with similar interests. Some people even use a social networking site to meet romantic partners, while for others it’s away to escape the daily grind of their mundane lives — after all, almost anyone can be cool on MySpace.

At a fundamental level, social networking web sites are designed to mimic how people tend to make friends in real life — by meeting new people through existing friends and acquaintances.

When you first join MySpace, you create a profile where you can post pictures and provide information about yourself and your interests. You can even write a blog, which is an online journal where you share your thoughts and feelings.

There is no doubt that MySpace dominates the social networking industry and there are also the most popular in the industry…..popular for the weakest security.

Recently, a backdoor exploit in MySpace allows anyone to have access of photos/pictures in profiles that are set to private. MySpace has been assuring it’s members that only those who are authorized are allowed to access the private photos but it seems that every time they close a backdoor, another one comes up. It has been going on for months (since last year).

The latest backdoor exploit news has been rapidly circulating on their message boards and a massive 17 GigaByte (GB) file that contains more than 500 thousand private images has been circulating in BitTorrent and Warez Forum…making this the biggest security breach ever!

There are several articles mentioning this exploits/breaches:

Read up those articles for more details and here’s a word of advice:

Don’t put photos that you don’t want other people to see on MySpace or any other Social Networking site…even if you plan to set your profile to private that does not mean you’re safe!

While the media and Silicon Valley have lost our corporate minds over the hype of Facebook over the previous year, traffic analysts Hitwise released statistics today indicating that things are not as they might appear. Apparently, all the Facebook hoopla has not translated into a big increase in cultural web marketplace percentage among US users. Hitwise says that Myspace received 72.32% of US visits to the best ten cultural networks in December 2007, while Facebook received just over 16%. How about year over year increase? Facebook had 10.59% market share in December 2006, Hitwise says. Myspace dropped from almost 79%. It appears that cultural networking has grown in general; though Facebook posts amazing numbers of original users, in terms of pure visits Myspace is almost keeping upward with its increase.

Good Education Background = More Respect on MySpace

Posted on July 31, 2016 
Filed Under Tips & Tricks | 1 Comment

In the last post, I talked about how to make your profile more fun by adding funny videos and interesting facts. Today, I’ll be talking about getting respect on MySpace.

Most people nowadays usually judge a person’s intelligence quotient (IQ) based on their education background. Having said that, it is important for you to know that in order to gain respect (and also more friends…I’ll talk about this later) you must not leave your education background blank on your MySpace Profile. Just fill in the blanks. Let say you’ve went to Malone College Graduate School or Walsh College or even Geneva College….show them on your MySpace Profile and let everyone know what’s you’re education background!

This also helps by not getting your MySpace account red-flagged because of suspicious activities. What does this has to do with being red-flagged? Well….a few months ago, MySpace went on a profile deleting and banning spree and this means that 90% of the time the account is being red-flagged by their bots. Red-flagged accounts includes incomplete MySpace profiles.

Ho Ho Ho!

MySpace is always in the process of updating themselves with unique features so that they can stay far ahead than their strongest contenders like Facebook. Apart from the general benefits like social networking, meeting friends, connecting MySpace to mobiles and business promotions now you can also avail the Google gears at MySpace. This special facility will allow the users to access their profiles even when they are not online. Though this service is still not available for a couple of months but the idea seems to be very bright and convenient from the perspective of all the users of MySpace.
