Facebook is used to meet new people and for work to post new thing on for people to see and so many people use Facebook today than when it was first shown to use and now you can play games buy/sell things that you don't want and join new inspiring new groups that you may like.
MySpace is so easy to use like blogging and if you are in a group chat the message you send go to the group or person that you sent it to which can not get easier than that, when people use bulletins on MySpace people take notice of it and some people don't and not so many people use MySpace any more because there are other social media sites that people use know like Facebook, twitter.
twitter is a lot like Facebook but a lot better because you can follow lots of famous people and find out what goes on in there life, some people use twitter to post work related thing that other people may what to know about and millions of people use twitter a day which is good for the people that run the company.
