Saying Goodbye


I have a MySpace account, that I started about two years ago, to help network with other internet booksellers and ebay moms. For a while, I really liked it, I never had any problems and could share links in my blog, bulletins, and profile updates. Well, all of that is a thing of the past. I switched over to the Firefox browser last year when I was having delays with Internet Explorer. It turns out MySpace doesn't like Firefox very much because I seem to get lots of error messages when I try to update my status. Then I started having problems updating my music player. Now, I think I have reached the breaking point. I am a lover of photography, for those who didn't already know, and I frequently share the link to my photo blog with my MySpace friends. Until now, I have never had any problems, but a few days ago, I posted my blog link after changing the background on my blog, and I asked my friends to give me their opinions on it. I got an email this morning from my aunt who is one of my MySpace friends, and she said she clicked the link and got a message from MySpace that they had blocked my link, the reasoning being that my site was a spam site and contained inappropriate content. Anyone who has ever seen my photo blog knows that the majority of my photos are of a naturalistic content, and every now and then I may share a photo of a family member or local event. I do not post nudity, profanity, or even political or religious content, so I am quite offended that MySpace would block my link. I am seriously thinking about closing my page down and focusing on my Facebook and Twitter accounts....

I hear you chica...that happened to me about a month ago..I even emailed them, but do you think I got a response? nope...so I switched to facebook, and it gives my updated posts right on my wall! I like it...not a chic as myspace, but very user friendly! good luck!
