MySpace vs. FB

So Facebook has overtaken MySpace… not that I really give a flip, but its not surprising.  From a pure visual standpoint, MySpace looks like a rundown stripmall… like something spit out of an early version of Frontpage.  If it weren’t for the band pages I would never use it.

FB on the otherhand, does have that generic common look… something you can get comfortble with… like a old sweater on a cold day (ok, maybe that’s stretching it a bit). It’s features a fairly straightforward and it has a wealth of fair to useless apps that are easy to add to your profile (Scabulous being one of the better ones). Whether they work or not is a totally different story — there’s something to be said for Apple’s strategy with the iPhone.

Anyway, Murdoch has no one to be upset with but himself.  He put his money on the wrong pony.
