Yourspace Or Mine?

The top picture was randomly taken from Penny's Myspace site, and the one below it is my very first Myspace profile picture. The conversation started because one of Penny's song choices, 'Step Into My World' by Hurricane #1, was her profile song. I asked one on air if it still existed and Penny didn't know. During the song I did a quick search and found Penny's defunct Myspace page. She hasn't touched it for about four years, which I think is about average. I was quite late abandoning Myspace, and went the whole hog and deleted it completely. I threw out the question of when was the last time you logged in to Myspace, and the most recent answer was two years! It is hard to believe that once upon a time it was the only social networking site, in my opinion it was always the best and would still be if they hadn't changed it around.
