MySpace In Time's 5 Worst Websites List

This Article Is Sponored By You! | Sunday, July 22, 2007 by Salman Siddiqui | Comments
I am now blogging on my self hosted blog CompuWorld and started another blog of mine the Senorita


By far the most famous social network around and the most talked about too, MySpace.com was once included in 50 coolest websites of 2006 list of Time itself. But since then things have changed a lot. Many times MySpace has been criticized over different blogs because of the huge spamming which started to take place over it. True that it has been used for America's presidential election campaigns, but that also failed to keep MySpace out of Time's 5 worst websites list.

Other 4 in the list are:
And let me add one to the list too. Orkut.com! Like MySpace it is also being madly used for spamming. Almost every community of orkut today is full of spam messages.

    I don't agree with you. Orkut.com is not one of the worst sites. There are two sides of orkut - one good & another one bad. If you stay in the good part, then orkut is beautiful.

    Social networking sites are very useful to stay connected with friends. Just because they are misused, it doesn't make them bad. Those people are bad who are misusing them.

    see keeping forward this point you are being diplomat...

    I will ask just one question. How many times have you voted the profiles doing spam as 'bogus'?

    I am sure never!

    and not even Google has done anything big to stop HUGE spamming occurring at orkut.

    Plus the server not working messages which keep popping up everytime!

    orkut is loosing it...!!

    As far as voting a profile as bogus, I have never done that because I rarely visit those profiles. I know spamming is done in orkut in a huge scale.

    But, my point is that for those who really want to connect with friends seriously, social networking is must. In my personal experience, I have met with a lot of old friends with whom I had no contact. Also, I have met new people, made new friends, shared new ideas. If you stay in the good side, it's good.

    Server not working messages is irrelevant here. It's not Google fault that spam occurs. It's neither easy to stop spamming in such a huge scale.

    P.S. You don't need to comment there. I waited for your reply.

    Not easy to stop spamming....NO WAY!

    google is using very hi techno so if they can ofcourse stop spamming....but friend see this ...

    they do earn a LOT from orkut ... may be not money....but loyal people...

    but as far as I know Google is working on a much better version of orkut....its going to come up...

    yes true that we do find old friends at orkut but again spamming is on the rise... and if it isn't stopped then

    once again the verdict continues orkut will loose it!

    I think this is a debate that will not end. I agree with you that Google earns by keeping people loyal to them.

    Google is adding more features to orkut day by day. Spam should also be in their list. Let's see what's in store for the future!

    By the way, can you give some suggestions to stop spam? It's still in all of our mailboxes.
