On MySpace’s Popularity

My Space has grown so much over the last few years, but I really don’t understand the big deal regarding it. Even the private sector attempts to cash in on the blog’s popularity, but –as far as I’ve seen– their attempts seem too humorous to be taken seriously.

The service lacks well thought-out organization, themes look dated (as with LiveJournal), MySpace blogs historically don’t display well on Safari or Mozilla based browsers, and their seemingly default setting where a music file plays on opening the main page is nothing short of annoying, especially when viewing multiple similarly set-up blogs.

I just thought I had to say something on a trend that just doesn’t make sense to me, but then again –the popularity of Windows doesn’t either– neither did “boy bands” for that matter. I guess it’s called blind acceptance (popularity?) –the result of monster marketing– and laziness.

To each his own, I guess.
