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 Safety Plan – Smoke and Mirrors?

Posted on September 16, 2014 
Filed Under News | Leave a Comment

Earlier today I posted about MySpace planning some structural changes to block sexual predators from abusing the social network and it’s members. A total of 49 states (in the US) will be cooperating closely with MySpace to help their plans. If you remember, there are a total of 50 states in US and which states is missing? Well, it’s Texas.

Texas Attorney General, Greg Abbott explained the reason for not participating and cooperating with MySpace at News.com.

In my opinion, it’s better to have some kind of plan than having no plan at all. As my mom used to say “If you fail to plan, then you plan to fail” ;)

Though Facebook is also trying to set up a music site similar to that of MySpace it is not dealing directly with music. They do not have any plans of directly setting up any music streaming but relying on iLike which is a third party application. iLike does not provide for music streaming but works with Rhapsody. iLike has been given special permission to access Facebook with the help of the Great Apps program.

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.
