Before Facebook and Twitter came along, we knew one thing and one thing only: Myspace. Having a profile on this social media platform was a true rite of passage – and you totally weren’t cool if you didn’t use it.
Using Myspace was basically our baby steps into the real (scary) world of social media, so what better way to honour it than with a trip down memory lane, eh? Read on for the things you could only possibly know if you were a true Myspace addict…
Your top friends were the sole cause of all arguments.
And they thus changed depending on who you were pissed off with.
It was a LIT day if you logged in and were greeted with this…
JUST LOOK AT HOW POPULAR I AM.
You were a pro at taking mirror selfies.
WITH AN ACTUAL CAMERA (and flash).
You always thanked people for adding you.
It was the polite thing to do, after all.
Choosing your playlist songs was the hardest decision ever.
Music by Timbaland, Jason Derulo and Avril Lavigne likely made several appearances.
You always welcomed Myspace Tom’s reassuring smile.
He was one of your true cyber friends.
You would continuously stalk your crush’s MySpace page to see if they were online.
Oh, what good times.
You would trawl through thousands of MySpace backgrounds until you found the perfect one.
Tbh, the more outrageous and eye-blinding, the better.
MySpace bulletins were your life.
Giving your MySpace friends a very detailed insight into your day-to-day life was an absolute necessity.
You were a pro at coding.
Who needed tech school? MySpace taught you all of the coding skills you could ever possibly need.
You never questioned the weirdness of the ‘Who I’d Like To Meet’ section.
