I have a few simple points as too why facebook is better:

1. The adds are smaller and less obvious

2. You don't get friend requests from random porn stars

3. Pop-ups for porn don't come up

4. There are limitless numbers of applications

5. You can easily see people at your schools or city

6. There is more customization

7. It is not as slow to load

I took on this debate by accident... sorry, but I will not be posting. Even though I do think that MySpace is better then Facebook. Someone else should challenge the instigator and take on this debate.

I don't want to "forfeit" so I will at least make my case on why I think that MySpace is better than Facebook. However I won't offer any new arguments, and instead just respond to what Pro has already written.

1. The adds are smaller and less obvious

This is untrue. There are only ads on the home page and the home pages of each individual user account. When you visit people's profiles, there are no annoying, large, blinking ads. Whereas on Facebook there are advertisements on the side, always.

2. You don't get friend requests from random porn stars

I get friend requests from random porn stars on both Facebook and Myspace. I'm not complaining.

3. Pop-ups for porn don't come up

I've never had a pop-up for porn come up on Myspace or Facebook, though I wish I did.

4. There are limitless numbers of applications

Applications on Facebook are annoying, because with them comes hundreds of application requests on the home page from people I've never met. I get requests to add applications such as "What color thong are you?" It's very annoying.

5. You can easily see people at your schools or city

Myspace has this feature too.

6. There is more customization

Absolutely not. Myspace allows you to customize your page the way you see fit. Facebook requires you keep the same boring page layout as everyone else. You can add just about anything you want on Myspace; If you're not familiar with HTML there are hundreds of pre-made layout websites that you van visit to get codes for things like page backgrounds, cursors, colors, effects, graphics, etc.

7. It is not as slow to load

Facebook applications clutter people's profiles and make them slow as Hell to load, so this is simply untrue.

Myspace is bigger than Facebook and you are exposed to more people, places and things (music, artists, movies, etc.) The reasons my opponent gave for Facebook being better are all untrue to some degree, as illustrated above.

RuthBaderLover won, but that doesn't stop me from wondering what kind of twisted pervert would have a crush on the old bat.

RuthBaderLover, I'll take over where Higgins left off if you would like. Just copy and paste what you posted in your first argument to me in a new challenge :)
