Simon Owens has had it with MySpace and has declared January 30 “International Delete Your MySpace Account Day”.
If you’ve experiences the annoyances of MySpace, you probably don’t need much convincing to delete your account, but in case you’re still teetering on the verge, Simon’s outlined his main motivators for giving MySpace the boot:
1. You rarely log in to Myspace except to delete spam friend requests from nude webcam girls.
2. You spend five minutes writing a wall post only to hit an error message when you try to post it because of all the website glitches.
3. You’re a girl who constantly gets marriage proposals from random men in the middle east.
4. You visit someone’s Myspace profile only to suddenly have music start blasting out of your speakers. Bonus points if it happens to you while you’re at work.
5. You have to make redundant clicks to perform simple tasks because Myspace keeps taking you to advertisement pages where you have to click on “return to myspace profile” in order to continue what you’re doing.
6. You visit someone’s profile only to have your eyes bleed because of terrible page layout with non-matching designs and font colors.
7. Your experience is hindered because of intrusive banner ads that either talk to you or try to reach out and block your view of what you’re trying to look at.
8. You read yet another news account about how some child predator using Myspace has abducted a little girl or that some hoax myspace account has caused a teenager to commit suicide.
9. You’re frustrated with the fact that Myspace doesn’t allow you to post your contact info, meaning to contact someone you can only use Myspace’s glitchy Instant Messenger, message/email system, or wall commenting.
10. You’re tired of seeing Tom stare out at you from millions of friends lists and just wish he would change his profile picture.
I cannot blame Simon for being pushed over the edge–I actually deleted my MySpace account about a month ago and somehow I’m still receiving “friend requests” from all sorts of random folks. So good luck to Simon–he may be deleting his account but I don’t know if MySpace ever lets folks escape their clutches. 🙂
What do you think–On January 30 will you guys be nuking your MySpace accounts?
