Myspace is Pissing Me Off

In the last week I have received 6 fake friend requests and 3 hacked messages.

Considering that I have less than 150 "friends" on myspace and over 550 facebook buddies, I think this is exceptionally high.

How many fake friend requests have I received from facebook?

None. Zero. Zilch.

Why is it that a company bought by Murdoch can not figure out a simple thing like user privacy? It would appear to be the hallmark of excellence or at the very least the most important piece of user identity.

User privacy and hackability are of utmost concern for most users.

Personally I have come to the point of no return. I just do not care anymore about my privacy on the net. In very few instances do I care. Its only in email and on financial services websites.

Social networking websites have horrible security. Therefore I never leave important information on these sites. I do not trust facebook or myspace with anything. But I still see their value. Yet facebook, despite all these application and group requests has my loyalty over myspace. Myspace is the internet porn of social networking. I hope it dies a slow death.
