But how many people all over the planet just clicked the Next button? This is the fastest way to involve “innocent” people into social networking business, !
Later during the day I heard a lot of my friends were receiving emails from these days, and I did a bit of investigation.
Even all the internet marketing gurus have My Space pages these days. They can even start charging you for it if they want. I went to login (I keep an account just so I can look around the site, but I don’t have a profile), and here’s what they showed me on the login page: The next time I went to login, they showed me this: The next time I went to login, they showed me an animated banner of a girl lifting up her dress, which I’m not gonna show here!!I don’t want to be overly critical, because I also have plenty of friends and family on My Space, but give me a break! Their TOS states, And of course, they can and will display sleazy dating ads to your friends and family who visit your profile. I don’t mean to offend anyone by posting those ads, but I think it’s important for people to know how My Space operates.I see these big time marketers on there acting like it’s a high school popularity contest. And I also scaled it down so as not to overstate the obvious; bear in mind that the original ads were TWICE as big (4X as much screen area) as the screenshot above, and they display similarly themed banner ads at the top of each member’s profile pages.However, these comments are merely a courtesy, and do not under any circumstances be fooled into thinking they really wish to be friends with you.Unless they are a little-known band who are actually your friends and practice in your next-door neighbour's garage every Sunday after church before resuming their jobs as janitors, garbagemen, and Star Bucks employees. All I had to do is enter my username and password from Gmail or some other (Yahoo, Hotmail…) account and it would do it all automatically for me. So I entered my Gmail user and pass: Well the next screen was a big surprise.
