Facebook chief executive Chris DeWolfe...
...is clearly a very sporting man, sharing a platform with the owner of his site's closest rival and even plugging its new API...
MySpace will open up to third party developers within the next few months. Facebook opened up its APIs in May this year and has been rewarded with a flood of applications written by third parties for the site. Although MySpace still claims the number one social networking spot, Facebook has seen fast growth this year as it …
The whole niceness of facebook was that it wasn't bogged down with applications/things to put on your profile which make it take a month to load like MySpazz does, now they've gone and ruined it, not a day goes by that at least one of my friends has added every single application they can find and i have to suffer the invites which i can only turn off after the first time i've had one to that particular application!
Oh and another thing, potentially very big -
I CANNOT UNREGISTER FROM MYSPACE
Nor can other people i know, the 'confirmation' e-mail where you have to click a link to confirm to delete your profile never arrives.
This raises huge questions over data protection and whatnot - people may think they are unregistering then forget about the e-mail, all the while your profile is stil up there.
The biggest reason I can never bring myself to go to myspace is that it looks like someone ate a box of crayons and puked them up onto the screen. That's probably more of a problem for them then a lack of apps.
I barely agreed to facebook but only because it wasn't such an assault on the eyes.
