    What do you guys think?
    I think once you're 25+, its wierd to see you there.

    I think that, if you're 28 and up, that it's little weird to suddenly join. However, if you've been there since before a certain age, it's "whatever".

    I don't think there is an age limit to Facebook. Just don't be a creepy old perve...

    I personally think you're too old for myspace after your 14th birthday. I hate myspace with a passion

    I ran into someone from my old high school a few months back. According to him, almost everybody from my year is on facebook.

    Reason enough not to join, to be sure. But for your purposes, evidence that people in their late 30s hang out there.

    as an artist i use myspace so i can host tunes i have written
    and talk to other producers as well as fans of the genres i produce.
    But if someone is using it at age 27 for merely a "social" life,it is creepy.:smile:

    Depends what you use it for. If you use it to chat and make friends, any age is acceptable. If you use it to hook up, over 20 is wierd.

    I think it's a great way to keep in contact with family (Facebook that is) I don't have a myspace... so I'm not sure. I know I have lots of relatives on there thought.

    I feel like Facebook is more age-appropriate for me, and maybe that's because I want to throw up whenever I see blinking icons and wallpapers and an atrocious mess of quizzes and memes and all sorts of disorganized "ooh gotta have it" crap. I suppose the same people can get carried away on Facebook, too; that's just less visible to me.

    Either way, I try to be purposeful about both places. I don't use Myspace all that much anymore, only to keep up with a couple of friends whose email addresses I don't have. I use Facebook to get connected to other people in town, and it's been a good way to seek jobs, sell crap, and contact people I know more often.
