Let’s throw it back to the good ol’ days, shall we?
It was a simple time when all you had to worry about was remembering who of your friends had unlimited texting with their hot pink Motorola Razr. But it was also a time when social media was taking off.
Do you remember your first Myspace account? I could quickly tell anyone what my last profile song was before I switched to Facebook. Cue: Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield.
As I did some research, I noticed Myspace just wasn’t the same as when I left it to switch over to Facebook. So, I am here for all of us who want to take a little walk down memory lane.
Here are the top 10 reasons why I miss Myspace:
It was the one stop shop for people to know who you were mad at, who you were “talking to,” which person is your new BFF, etc. Seriously. My Top 8 switched every. Single. Day.
I was always going to FontSpace.com and plugging in my name to see what it looked like all blinged out.
As my mood changed, so did my profile song. It was a great little addition to any boring old profile page.
Taking selfies before they were called selfies
We should get paid for inventing the “selfie” we had to take pictures with ACTUAL cameras! Our kids won’t believe the suffering we went through trying to execute a mirror selfie with a Canon. (Shudder)
You know when you were browsing for the perfect song and you searched our your favorite band’s Myspace profile? It was like you were two degrees away from knowing them.
You knew that no matter what, you’d always have a friend.
Myspace Bulletin Surveys
You know the ones that would ask you questions like, “Last drink you had,” “Have you ever been cheated on?”, etc. These surveys gave you great insight into your friends and gave you great ammunition for the future.
Picking a layout
I don’t know about you but losing my creative Myspace background was the hardest part to switching over to Facebook.
“Online Now!” status
This was the first thing I looked for on my crush’s page. It gave me heart palpitations filled with equal parts excitement and anxiety.
For us millennials, Myspace was the hottest thing around and was your online diary. It gave great insight to who you are and if we are being really honest, you miss your younger self—even if it’s just a little bit.
I don’t know about you but when Myspace’s popularity died, so did a little bit of my soul.
