My Space vs Facebook- who is better and why
Posted on May 25, 2007 by jeb

Facebook.com rolled out their new interface last night that allows outside developers to create applications which will run on the Facebook platform.

Article From CNN about Facebook.com 

What's this mean? Basically it means that Facebook is about to get a lot cooler since users will be able to do all sorts of fun stuff within their and their friend's profiles, like play games, listen to music, read news feeds, watch videos, chat, etc. Basically anything that can be done online can be done within your Facebook profile. 

This is the latest of a series of steps Facebook has taken to distinguish itself from its competition including the social network monster My Space.

The problem with My Space is that it has become everyone and no-one's space. I think I know maybe 25% of my "friends" on My Space but I know all my friends on Facebook. Facebook is set up to create real community and real interaction whereas My Space is set up as a popularity contest.

Programming-wise My Space is a complete mess. It's hard to believe that they haven't revamped the site with all the money they supposedly have. Whereas Facebook has spurned selling out (for a reported $1 Billion) and continued growing and refining its site into what is now one of the most impressive around in terms of functionality and usabilty. 

So who is going to win the My Space versus Facebook duke out? I'll put my money on Facebook. I give My Space another year at most before we start seeing the masses shift to the vastly better platform of Facebook.
