How big of a nerd am I?

Ok, don't answer THAT. Please.

But I just figured out how to take a picture of myself and put it on our myspace page - PLUS I didn't even know we had a myspace page - it had our very first christmas card EVER on it as the only photo - so, yeah, back to big nerd time.

I'm going to search for friends, etc. , but here's my ACTUAL question - what's the real use of myspace vs. cafemom? Should I stress about keeping both updated? Any thoughts, suggestions from people who use both are greatly appreciated.

  • I use Myspace to keep in touch with certain family members. I also have a ton of friends from high school as friends on there, even though they mostly use Facebook now. (I'm not a huge fan of Facebook but I also have an account there.)

    I get different uses out of the two...the way I look at it, on Myspace I'm just a 20-year-old who happens to have a child. But here on CafeMom, I'm a mother who just happens to be 20.

    Plus I'm the only actual mom out of like 99% of my high school friends lol. They couldn't come here anyway.

  • I have a lot of friends on myspace, and only a few on cafe mom. For me, myspace is to keep in touch with friends and family, cafemom is to meet moms with same interests, concerns, and to get and give advice when I can.

  • It's not difficult keeping them both up to date. I have cafemom, myspace, and livejournal. *shrugs*

    Don't sweat it. Just do what you have time for. It's OK if you don't update right away or something.

  • I use Myspace and CafeMom daily. On Myspace I have friends and family who aren't Moms (like my Dad and most of my real-life friends) so I wouldn't find them here LOL. And I use CafeMom to connect with other Moms. It's not that hard maintaining both.

  • I had a MySpace page and just didn't have the time to keep up with it. I much prefer CafeMom. I also belong to some MSN Groups that had to move to some other forums because MSN is closing it's groups down in February. I only followed the groups that meant the most to me and where I made the most meaningful friendships.
    We also have a website (free) for just our family and closest friends where they can keep updated on our personal family news and photos.
