Ah, those were the days, where you could do such innovative things like post a profile, put a pretty picture behind it, and if you were particularly clever set some music to play in the background.
Don't laugh, you young whippersnappers! These were the pioneering days of social networking! We had no idea back then what was possible!
For those of you who don't remember (or have blocked it out), MySpace was one of the first popular social networking sites out there. Imagine Facebook, but without the apps. There was no Farmville or Candy Crush back then, my children. We had to play games the old fashioned way ... at games.com.
We all had a page, and we were all friends with Tom (the creator of the site who took the opportunity to make sure he had more friends than anyone else). But its popularity took a nosedive as Facebook's grew. It just couldn't compete with having the ability to virtually poke people, I'm afraid.
But I read the other day that MySpace is trying to make a comeback [link]. That's right, for all you people who are feeling nostalgic about the early 2000's you can now log back into your MySpace accounts and start using it again in its new and improved incarnation!
Oh god, I just realised what this means, another social networking site to keep up with. What with Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest and Instagram, I think I'm going to have to give up sleeping just to fit another one in!
