Hey! whos got this? its like the new myspace phenomenom...not quite the most popular thing yet, buts it gettin really big, more so olders then us teens..

Its not very aussie friendly yet (no aussie high schools really) but its only newish.

Tried it out and its so much easier to use than myspace, now its just a matter of getting the members!

My whole family has it. All my friends have it... it's just myspace in a new form :lol:

I havent made a profile. Really cant be bothered... but the invites i get everyday in my email inbox really annoy me. Just about every member on my list has invited me to join facebook :roll:
He'll never understand just how much of me belongs to him.

I had a look at it, and i think I registered..not sure though. Something about not being able to register 'coz they didn't know my school?
I think i'll stick with myspace.

It's mainly a uni-centric thing, a sort of 'grown-up' MySpazz. You can't edit the html on your page, so no more fancy trousers backgrounds so eye-piercingly bright, you'll void your bowels. There's also fewer people and musics on Facebook.

Personally, I don't mind the CrackBook. It's much more mature than MySpazz. in that you don't get bands and spam constantly adding you, you don't get ridiculously busy profiles which just look overcrowded and crap, and the groups and applications can get pretty fun.
I'm just dreading the day a 'Background Editor' application is let loose on the site.
For your consideration:

Facebook is awesome. Much better setup than myspace. No embed music at you, when you look at someone's page.

I've also noticed that the Australian high schools aren't there, but all you have do is ask. I've found a few ex-classmates from high school (all those years ago)

I use both Facebook and MySpace. I prefer MySpace over Facebook easily. There's too many of those annoying applications all the time and if you want to use any of them you have to install it first. As for MySpace's problem of bands and spam adding you, that's why there is a deny button. Simple. No spam or unwanted bands on my list.

I might just make a profile just for the hell of it. I'm happy with myspace really though.
