LOL, that's okay, Susie. MySpace isn't for everyone.
I love it because it has enabled me to get reaquainted with so many people. One is a friend that lived on the street that I grew up on and we used to spend a lot of time together as kids. She moved away when we were still kids, and eventually we lost touch with eachother, so it was a great way to reconnect. I've also found old school friends as well.
Anyhow, you can make your page either public or private. If it's private, only those who you accept as friends can view your page. You can personalize it by adding music and a background you like. Your friends can send comments to your page, or messages that come into an inbox, like email. You can also blog on it, if you're into that. It's fun, but like I said, it's not for everyone.
