MySpace lacks structure.
Because MySpace allows users to customize the appearance of their page, the result is a clusterfu… oops, I meant a browsing nightmare. For example, take something as simple as a profile photographs. There doesn’t appear to be any limitations on dimensions. Some people’s photos are mere head shots; others are full body shoots that you need to scroll to see all of. As a result, some profile pages (and especially those with few than a handful of comments) don’t flow too well. This is just one example of how quasi-free-form profiles can be a bad influence on page structure.
The brain needs structure. When we visit a structured site we expect structured content; when information isn’t where it is expected to be, frustration sets in. You would think that the comments on one profile would bear a resemblance to comments on another profile. When this isn’t the case, it distracts from the overall experience in a negative way.
MySpace is gaudy.
I am not a designer. I know this. I know that I have zero design skills. I don’t attempt to make up for this shortcoming by plastering animated imagery on my page. Nor do I embed loud and poorly sampled audio clips which blindside potential visitors. It is a shame that others — specifically at least half (if not more) of all MySpace users — find this sort of thing necessary.
It reminds me of Geocities, circa 1998. Or was it Tripod with its 9MB quota, circa 1999? Or was it Angelfire in 1997? Either way, it was quite the debacle. Hundreds of thousands of people who just discovered how to use HTML, coming together in order to create the most hideously colored and flashing web pages in the not-so-quickly maturing online world. Had none of the above-mentioned companies offered free (with advertising) web pages, none of this crap would have ever happened. It took years of insults and coordinated jeering to get rid of them. The guilty parties growing up probably helped too. Just as we thought that all the gaudy personal web pages were fading away, MySpace re-introduces them… then gains an obscene amount of popularity just to spite history.
MySpace uses distracting advertising.
Naturally you’ve got someone else’s advertising slapped up on your page, banner-ad style. In the case of Geocities, it was the annoying three-clicks-to-get-rid-of-it sidebar. For some Tripod accounts, it was a pop-up ad. MySpace uses the flashing, animated, and otherwise obnoxious banner ads to detract from the user’s profile.
I don’t have a problem with advertising, so long as it doesn’t detract from the experience; my choice is Google’s AdSense program. Not that you could run AdSense on a MySpace profile anyways. I’ve yet to read any MySpace profile that could yield intelligible text for Google to parse. I don’t even know what sort of ads could be contextually relevant to the gibberish that today’s teenagers type.
MySpace reserves the right to your content.
