Looks interesting... with better features than Facebook has by default. Should be good Very Happy

Well it's cool it will obviously be connected to your google account, so Gmail, Youtube, Maps etc, but on the other hand I'm worried about becoming too dependent on Google :p

Heck, I probably already am. Oh well, better them than Apple or M$ I guess.

Also anyone notice the standard Google pages theming is a bit like Ubuntu now? With the dark headings, orange highlights etc.

I'm still amazed over how fast Myspace went down the drain.

DUnno, I don't really use it either but apparently (I have 4 younger sisters Laughing) it's pretty much just a haven for emo teens and even it's black theming these days kinda reflects that. Facebook just absolutely buried it in popularity in recent times.

Myspace just got sold out to a group of investors, Justin Timberlake of all people was one of them. Not sure what the price was, but it was cheap. Personally, I don't know of anyone that still uses it.
