I just found out that January 30th is International Delete Your MySpace Account Day. What an awesome birthday present — I’m there, dude!
Iâ€™ve been thinking about deleting my Myspace account almost since the day I got it but always opted out of doing so because of the few friends I have who donâ€™t have Facebook accounts. But by remaining on Myspace, I realize, Iâ€™m becoming an enabler. Iâ€™m giving those friends no reason to switch over from Myspace by giving them access to my Myspace profile.
The only reason I even have a MySpace account in the first place is because at my last job, we needed to test how to format our video player embed code on MySpace. I did find one actual friend on MySpace, but since my wife and I now have email addresses for her and her husband…
The sole remaining reason for me to visit MySpace anymore would be to catch up on news about Weird Al. And really, there’s not much reason to visit it for that, because that’s not the official Weird Al website, anyhow (though, it is really his account).
I’m adding a reminder on my calendar to delete my MySpace account on January 30. How about you?
