What Is MySpace?

Filed Under Tips & Tricks | Comments Off

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.

MySpace Worm – The Popular Guy Hack

Have you heard of the famous “popular guy” hack, also known as the Samy Worm? If not, this will be an interesting read :)

Written by MySpace member Samy, the “popular guy” hack was actually a worm designed to make Samy the most popular guy on MySpace. Whenever someone viewed Samy’s profile, that person automatically made Samy their friend — without their permission. This was interesting enough, but Samy decided to go further. He created a hack where anyone who viewed a profile where Samy was already a friend also automatically made Samy a friend on their profile. So, if ten people viewed Samy’s profile, Samy would have ten new friends. If 10 people viewed the profiles of each of these new friends, Samy would have an additional 100 friends, and so on.

Another Interesting MySpace Resource / Layouts Site

Filed Under MySpace Layouts & Codes | Comments Off

A few days ago, I posted about a MySpace Resource site that has a wonderful collection of layouts for MySpace.

Well today, I’ve found another site that offers tons of layouts! It’s not like any other myspace resource site that uses the same old script and has all the same old collection. This particular myspace site is a BLOG and it is Powered by WordPress!

Let me introduce to you, RadProfile.com :D RadProfile.com has been recently sold to another owner so the site may sometimes be down. However, you can still have a peek thanks to the wonders of Google Cache ;)

It’s not everyday you come across a MySpace Resource site that is totally different and more unique than others.

MySpace will allow contributions in HTML, JavaScript, CSS, Adobe Air and future languages within a controlled environment because it was left with only Flash after it banned other code due to what it called “exploitation” by “nefarious people”, according to information on the forum.

MySpace said the platform has an Australian developers’ hub and provides a place for them to collaborate, build and test new software under the auspices of MySpace engineers who monitor how proposed widgets affect site security.

Jewelry + MySpace = Cool

Posted on July 8, 2014 
Filed Under Tips & Tricks | Comments Off

This post is very much similar the last post I made.

There are many types of jewelry (such as figaro ball chain, rings, necklaces) than you can show off on your MySpace Profile. Showing off your jewelry for example, your engagement rings can send a clear message to people that you are have been engaged many times and have not found the right partner and are in search for potential partners. I’m sure a lot of people would want to get to know you and MySpace is the perfect middleman :)

But it can also send a wrong message such as you cannot commit to something long enough but not everyone has this kind of mindset…so don’t worry ;)

Showing off your jewelry in your MySpace profile can be cool…sometimes even cooler than showing off your gadgets. Gadgets are everywhere and are considered to be normal but seeing a collection of jewelry on a MySpace Profile…now that’s something different….and different is cool!

So, if you want to try and be different…try showing off your jewelry instead of your gadgets, cars, etc.

Best of luck :D!
