Do you My Space or Facebook?
Activity #5 for my Web 2.0 assignments is to learn more about social networking websites like My Space and Facebook. I have never been on Facebook before and don't think it is something that would be for me, either. I noticed that the library has 100 fans and yet the library's My Space pages have very few 'friends' and I wonder why? I only used My Space for a few months back in 2006...I mainly created the page so that I could log into My Space to see if my son (who was deployed at the time) had been on his My Space page, it would give me reassurance that he was ok if we didn't get a phone call for 2-3 weeks at a time. I rarely go onto my page anymore. My husband uses My Space pretty extensively as a way to promote his band and his music. He does run an open 'mic' night once a week and uses his My Space page to notify the other bands/performers if he isn't doing it that week for one reason or another.
