I don't really understand myspace too much. It's a somewhat useful site for me because bands are on it that I like, and you can often get rare mp3's from their myspace pages. But most of it is people I don't know e-mailing me or telling me to "add me" as their friend even though I don't know them. I rarely go into the "messages" or "friend requests" part of the site and don't even really know when I get messages unless I happen to check. I guess I'm not really using it as a networking tool at all.
However, one caught my eye tonight and I clicked on the link and this was the message:
Subject: oh em gee
oh my goodness mr (epiphinbalto) has a myspace!! its me (edited) u had me in 9th grade now im in 11th...EVERYONE has a myspace now :-p btw u rocked as an english teacher now i have ms (edited) for IB ENG III wheeeww its harrd but nevertheless u still rocked add me
"Oh em gee," indeed. In addition, I found an "friend request" from another former student. The kids have found me.
(An aside: can you believe a student wrote that e-mail to an English teacher?)
I'm trying to decide if it's a big deal. My profile is not very revealing - just favorite books, movies, and shit like that. The "about me" space just says, "A guy who loves his job, life, and baseball. I moved to Baltimore four years ago from Michigan, without knowing a soul. I like it here a great deal, and have made it my home. Life is good." Not much revealing there. I don't think it matters too much. Hmmm. I'm sure my colleagues will make fun of me for this one.
