If you post please also state your opinion on Social Networking websites.
What do you like about certain ones? What do you not like about some?
What would change your mind about the ones you don't like?
I ask all this mainly for research, I'm in the middle of a project and I am debating letting it die. I honestly don't want to but it is very time consuming.
What I am thinking of doing is maybe making it open source..
I like clean, professional designs. I hate seeing ads on websites and I equally hate pop-ups! I usually read information on sites, listen to music, or view information (pictures, etc.).
I have no problem with Facebook and MySpace. I actually have both... I like myspace because it's easier to find groups of people in a certain location around a certain age. That makes me sound like a stalker, but it's actually useful because I play in a band (and our band is on myspace) so it's easier to talk to "local" people that could come to a show or whatever. I also like myspace music - very nice and useful for the most part.
I rarely get on my facebook because it kinda of seems impersonal to me in some ways... don't ask me why, haha. I occasionally send messages from there, but I'm rarely on there. I might spend more time on FB if they made it a little more customizable and friendly. I also hate that both sites are starting in with the applications and stuff... very annoying.
As long as a site is clean, easy to navigate, and displays the information efficiently, I don't mind spending time on it. :]
