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.

Have you ever seen one of your friends posting a bulletin with a very very and I mean very long title and it causes the style of the page to go haywire? If you have and want a solution to keep the title from overflowing, take a look at http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/20331

It’s basically a script that you can use so that the bulletin title won’t ruin the style of the page. The source code of the script can viewed at http://userscripts.org/scripts/review/20331.

I personally love this script :D Thanks xenomark!

* You must have Firefox for this to work.
* You must have the Greasemonkey add-on installed

MySpace Turning Off External Image, Video and Widget Services

Posted on March 24, 2014 
Filed Under News | Comments Off

There have been a lot of talk for the past few weeks about MySpace not letting its users to use any external image, video and widget services.

From my point of view, it seems MySpace is doing for a good cause. Here are the reasons:
- More controlled and safer environment
- Easier management
- Prevent any exploit caused by the external services.

Some of us might support MySpace for doing his but some don’t. If you disagree with MySpace decision to turn off any external image, video and widget services…you can sign a petition at http://www.petitiononline.com/pbucket/petition.html. Currently there are a total of 2680 signatures obtained.

I myself have no problem with MySpace deciding to disable external services :)

MySpace Launching a Facebook Style News Feed

Posted on March 17, 2014 
Filed Under News | Comments Off

According to Reuters, MySpace will be launching a news feed that is similar to Facebook in about 1 month plus from now. According to MySpace, they will be allowing other application developers to publish stories to the feed.

It seems that this recent move by MySpace is telling all of use that they are running out of ideas on how to attract more members.

In my opinion, MySpace should really focus on improving existing features before releasing a new feature.

Anyways, we’ll see how it goes.

MySpace Accounts Breached !?

Posted on March 10, 2014 
Filed Under News | Comments Off

Looks like Paris Hilton’s and Lindsay Lohan’s MySpace account has been breached. Although the reports were not verified and no comments has been made by both celebs, the news is spreading all over the world wide web. Here is a quote from VW:

Want to see Paris Hilton’s MySpace profile? How about Lindsay Lohan’s? Don’t worry about those pesky privacy settings. Thanks to “data portability,” a faddish technology movement that the Valley has been buzzing about for months, you can see any profile you want on MySpace. Byron Ng, a Canadian computer technician with a knack for finding Web security holes, has discovered that Yahoo’s integration with MySpace makes it easy to view photos for any profile.

I will not be surprised if this rumor is true because a lot of MySpace accounts has been breached before. I just hope MySpace will beef up their security system before people start migrating to other ‘safer’ social networking sites.

Free MySpace DIV Layouts

Posted on February 17, 2014 
Filed Under MySpace Layouts & Codes | Comments Off

Free MySpace div layoutsThe group Free Divs has now launched a website.

Made and constantly updated by the founder (Nick) it is a great place to go if you are looking for a free MySpace div layout.

Free divs was started in 2005 by Nick who was just a bit bored and thought he would put his skills to some good use and make layouts for people.

After a while the group became too big to control on his own and so he requested help from some active members. In 2006 it peaked at over 10,000 members, but the moderation account was hacked, and the group deleted.

This could have been the end of the story. However, Nick relaunched the group, and is still trying hard to get his members back. This is when he launched the new Myspace Div Layouts website.

The website keeps all the group’s div layouts in one place, which makes it even easier to get the codes and see the previews. Nick has also created a tutorial section which is growing steadily.

There should soon be a new layout for the website, which will be easier on the eyes and make it much easier to navigate.
