I’m just wondering how many of you out there have a myspace page. The reason I ask is that I think myspace pages represent the worst in web design on the Internets. It boggles my mind how popular myspace is.
Have you seen a myspace page? First, it allows users to embed a song that plays automatically when someone visits their page. That’s just awful. And the backgrounds people choose for their pages make it impossible to read the text. The formatting in general makes it a usability nightmare. If Jakob Nielsen were dead (and he’s not), he’d be spinning in his grave right now.
So let’s see ’em. If you’re on myspace, let’s take a look. I’ll show you my myspace page if you reciprocate.
