MySpace messaging problems!
Cash would have totally hated MySpace.
I get a pretty steady stream of hits and comments on my posts about MySpace errors from teh Goggles and other Interwebs search bots. In fact, they’re my most popular content. A lot of people have been complaining about not being able to send messages over a long period of time, and now I’m experiencing something similar.
I honestly don’t send a lot of messages on MySpace anymore, but there are a couple few people I talk with regularly (read: cybersex). For the past five days or so, messages to a certain someone have vanished into thin air, not even giving me the famous error message or anything. Just nothing in the Sent folder.
The workaround seems to be to copy your message before sending, then go back and paste your message into a new message and send again. The second-send seems to work for whatever reason.
I tend to take my sweet ass time composing messages, so maybe something is timing-out (perhaps a session thingy, if you’re Geek). I don’t know.
But this is one of the reasons why I’m still predicting MySpace’s imminent death. With all the social networking competition, something so poorly engineered and as fun to use as a tax form can’t last. People will discover that there are progressive, friendly products out there (like Facebook), and find themselves subconsciously gravitating toward them, until a critical mass is reached and the scales tip.
Has anyone checked out Ning, by the way?
