Myspace
My Space is a social networking site where it allows friends to keep in touch and meet new people as well. MySpace is like an online community. MySpace started out as a website where bands could promote their music, but have since grown more popular as a more general community of friends. MySpace is a free website and anyone who is 14 and over can sign up for a myspace account.

Before creating a myspace account, you need to choose a username and password which will be used to log your self into your myspace account, This gives you control over what appears on your profile page. The only way other users can comment on your page is through comments, which you can choose to delete once you have logged in to your account.


Once signed up you can customize your profile by giving it a different background picture, uploading a photos of your self and others, adding information about yourself,and listing your hobbies and interest. You can also create your own blog for others to see and read.

Dustin Moskovitz and Eduardo Saverin. Facebook was initially only meant to be used by the students of Harvard University until it was later expanded to other universities in the Boston are, then it was later expanded to other students at colleges and high schools and then was finally expanded to people who were over the age of 13.
