Myspace: Good or Bad?

Myspace: Good or Bad?

By Miraya Berke

Does everyone that you know have a MYSPACE?

What is it about that has gotten everyone in such a fuss?

There have been many stories of problems with Myspace.  Fake Myspaces.  Men pretending to be young boys and meeting young girl`s places.  Friend drama.  Gossip starting.  Etc...

There are also plenty of good things about Myspace.

It is a wonderful place to chat with friends.  People can figure out what their weekend plans are with friends, ask for homework help, and even discover fun new songs.  Myspace originally was a dating service and is still used for that purpose.  It is also possible to make friends with people from all over the world on Myspace.  You can chat and compare how life is different in California than in England.

As long as people are responsible and smart about what they say and post on Myspace, then it is truly a harmless site.  Myspace even offers an option to make your site private so only friends that you accept can view your pictures and comments.

If you are interested in joining in on the fun, go to and just remember to be smart and stay safe!
