I always get invited by stupid artists @ myspace... and I can't seem to communicate much through that website...
Facebook seems more interactive and fun.

Facebook all the way. I personally have both, and I can see the benefits of Myspace for musicians and other artists to get their material out to a wide audience, but if you are like me and are just looking to use the site for social purposes (to connect with friends), than Facebook is the only way to go. Maybe I'm biased, because my closest friends only have Facebook pages and do not have Myspaces, but I find it easier to get in touch with people on Facebook. Alot easier. Facebook Chat is far superior and easier to use than the Myspace IM. Facebook's homepage is also a lot more user friendly with its design. It's not like Myspace doesn't have similar features to Facebook, but Facebook's design of its features is so much better than Myspace's.  
 
So in a nutshell, if you're a musician looking to get your material out there, than Myspace an easier and better way to go, but if you just wanna socialize, mess around, and have fun with your friends, than definitely Facebook.

I'm pretty new to MySpace, but I prefer it for the simple reason that I don't really want to socialize with friends. Believe it or not.  Grin All these stupid status updates and comments don't make it better either.  
 
I find Facebook to be a bit easier to handle, but that's probably because I've been there for well over two years now.  
 
Also, MySpace is a nice way to discover new bands.

Is there a neither option? I don't use them.  
 
I guess I'd go with Myspace though if I had to choose.

That's how I feel about myspace...too much junk and crap all over the place; it's pretty common for a person to have an endless page full of stupid videos with an eye scarring background. Yeah there's a reason people don't use it anymore.

Yes, a lot of myspace pages are like that, but it's not so hard to avoid them. It's impossible to stay clear of all the facebook notifications when you have an account.

No it's not, you can set individual apps not to notify you.  You can also block certain apps so you won't ever see them.  Same with people.  Smiley

Notifications, yeah. But it won't stop them from appearing on your wall. And new applications come all the damn time. It'll never stop!  Tongue

I stay away from both...my long term privacy is more  important than trying to network with the entire world.
Face to Face networking is the best.
As far as keeping close to my circle....i use e-mail or cell.

Facebook. Really I mostly use it to waste time playing Texas Holdem. At first it was great because I re-connected with people I have not seen since high school and even from childhood. Now I have too many postings of things I don't care about from people I once knew but will never really know again due to where life has taken me and who I have become. There is so much time between us and we have all gone different directions. Of course there are a few exceptions. I have slowly begun to de-friend people which is helping.  
 
I still use it just not as much. I never tried myspace for my own page, I have used it to try new music but now I prefer lastFM. I find that myspace  slows my PC and the pages are often cluttered. There is a lot of stuff on facebook too but it seems to be more organized.

I use both semi-frequently - Facebook more.  
 
On both, I get people I don't know trying to friend me, or people I knew in school but they never liked me doing the same. If you didn't talk to me in school - why do you wanna talk to me now?
 
They both have major downfalls that really take away from the site as a whole for me besides what I previously mentioned. With Facebook, it's constant suggestions by users or app invites. With MySpace it's just a whole lot of bands I don't know trying to friend me.

Man, a "friend" I had in school and that I stopped talking to in 1989 sent me a message saying sorry if she hurt me... too late mate, doesn't deserve a reply!

Face to Face networking is the best.

I agree with pretty much everything both positive and negative I've read in this thread.  But the above quote is the best sentence in the whole damn topic.  And beyond the topic; for life!
 
Facebook is fun.  I like it.  I'm not going to apologize for that.  I block TONS of things in my news feed and I am thrilled to be able to say that I have blocked certain people with whom I know I have mutual friends.  Thank DOG for that.
 
I was on MS for a while to use the blog as a writing medium, but then I finished what I was writing and have pretty much let that account lie dormant.  I never get friend requests because I have no friend profiles attached.  I can't delete the account because the email address with which it was set up is long-defunct and the hassle to go through to delete it is not worth my time.  I do think the music pages are far superior for both users and artists.
 
@Isa:  so that's what you decided, huh?

I think it's kinda amusing how people here (at an internet forum) is agreeing that face to face networking is the best.
