Myspace is better than Facebook.

1. You can add music to your profile.

2. You can edit Backgrounds.

3. You can start your own Blogs

4. The site was easy to navigate, and fun to use, facebook is plain and boring.

Discaimer: This debate has a 1k char limit.

1. and 2. So? What's amazing about adding music to your profile? The site is directed at younger people, who only care about music, and cool pictures. Also music and pictures can be deemed offensive, or distasteful by friends and family members. Someone may want to check out on the well being of their nephew, to be confronted by vulgar rap or screamo music, or see skimpy pictures of girls in the background, etc. This adds as an instant detterant to them wanting to be on the site. Pictures and music can be pursued on someone's own time. What benefit is there to having them forced on people who click on your profile?

3. Pretty sure you can blog on facebook too.

4. Facebook is about 10x easier to navigate than myspace ever was. Myspace requried knowledge of HTML, and coding. Older people, or naive people had a harder time navigating myspace. Facebook, is easy for everyone to use and doesn't discriminate the stupid people.

I think what pro-meant was Myspace was more customizable, which is true. I remember when I first started using Facebook i was rather disappointed you couldn't customize a background like Myspace.

Reasons for voting decision: Overall: Con. Breakdown. Conduct: Pro forfeited a round so this point goes to Con. S&G is tied because Pro forgot to put a period on one of his sentences, but Con did not capitalize Facebook once. Arguments. Well, since Pro forfeited, Con's, rather good, contentions stand. Overall, this was a good butt-whooping.
