While there are many social networking websites today, Facebook and Myspace are the two most popular and most visited ones per day. Because, they happen to be the most famous, one tends to ask which one is actually better? The truth is Facebook- lets take a look why.
First of all, although Myspace provides a number of options that Facebook does not(such as a customizable profile, music on your profile, and much more), Facebook is better for one main reason- its extended privacy options. In todays day and age when internet privacy is a very scarce option, Facebook provides many privacy controls that allows you to control who will see your profile, pictures, videos, and even friends lists.
Another facet of Facebook that makes it better than Myspace, is that it has a number of different applications that you may add to your page to make it more fun. These applications include drawing graffiti, making your friends ginger bread cookies, sending people virtual gifts, and even sending cards and jokes.
Overall, if you are looking to join a social networking website, then Facebook is the better option. Although Myspace is not bad, and may seem better for some people, Facebook provides a more controlled environment. This environment is especially favored for those parents who like to view what their children are doing on the web.
“Myspace Alexa Rank 5 – with a 3 Month Traffic Average = 3% growth, while the competitor Facebook Alexa rank of 6 (1 point lower) has has shown 13% growth in traffic for the same period. Google page rank for both the website is PR 8.”
