Betamax Vs. VHS / MySpace Vs. Facebook – Room for both this time

Look here to get a good comparison of Facebook and MySpace. The thing about both of these online communities is that they can be used to get your information to family and friends. They are both good for reacquainting and keeping in touch with your mates. Though, when you compare the two, you see there are some real differences.

Here are a few comparisons about these two sites that should help you know what will meet your needs.

•MySpace is an online community that has several options open for sharing information, posting pictures, adding your own music and videos and much more. There is more of an entertainment-based interface being used.

•Facebook uses a cleaner more basic interface that has options for posting pictures, information, and stories in addition to other learning information. There is not a great deal of hype and the overall look is basic, not flashy.

•MySpace can be customised almost however you like. There are many layouts, generators and other graphics that are set up to work within the MySpace environment. You can write HTML and insert Flash.

•Facebook has a basic look, and does not appear to be changing that at this time. However, you never know what the future holds.

•MySpace has places for slide shows, music player and other picture options.

•Facebook has nice picture album setups.

•MySpace has places for blogs, information, etc. and fits well with LiveSpace blog and soon with WordPress

•Facebook has places for blogs, information etc. However, there is also a running history of changes that have recently occurred. This is nice for friends and family to be able to see what changes have been made.

•MySpace leaves some open issues for unwanted eyes. However there are ways to block all but family members and friends from seeing the private information on your Myspace site.

•Facebook has some information available for viewing. However a request must be sent in all cases for new friends etc to be added to the friend list. However constant evolution also means that privacy might have to manually updated.

•MySpace has more information showing, if you do not make your settings private. The problem with this is that there are many people who do not make this setting and can be very surprised with the unwanted spam they will get.

As you compare these two options you will find that as with any other online community, there are pros and cons to both. In comparing these you also can see that they are targeted to different people for different reasons.

For some of us, it’s great to have both of these choices available. Others are perfectly happy with one or the other. What ever you choose, it will be up to you to protect yourself where needed by using caution about your privacy.

This is my simple comparison of Facebook and MySpace.

My pref? MySpace but rarely update my page as no one I know really uses it!
