My MySpace Page Got Deleted Again…

My original MySpace account got deleted again… doesn’t look like I will get it back this time.

The first time it got deleted was shortly after Mark Zuckerberg and I had our fall out…

I was able to get it back quickly…

but soon deactivated it June 15th 2005.

The reason I deactivated the account was… There were people inquiring about me to random people on my friends list. I used the name Jade as my username at the time. I had a large friend list back then on MySpace. The majority of the people on my friends list I didn’t know personally but people begain private messaging me saying there were people from California trying to obtain information on me… like my real identity… where I lived… etc. and it freaked me out… so I deactivated the account.

Facebook was just a year old then…

It wasn’t until December 7th 2005 that I reactivated the account…

I was in the process of moving out of the apartment that my Mom and I rented that we could no longer afford… it was an unexpected move. During that time I was trying to reach Mark to tell him I was moving but was unable to reconnect… that was the only reason I reactivated the account.

Then 4 months later MySpace deleted my account for the 2nd time…

awhile went buy and I was able to obtain the account again…

Only to have it deleted again for the 3rd time September 3, 2019.

Even though I no longer used the account, That account was sentimental to me… it was my original account from 2003… I was 19 years old then. I spent my spare time on it, it was my escape from real life… The way the site was designed back then allowed anyone to customize their page any way they wanted, That feature is what made me fall in love with MySpace because it allowed me to express myself freely. MySpace also allowed me to learn and experiment with HTML code… because of that everyday my profile had a different look almost everyday and that is what caught Mark Zuckerberg’s attention… he said he liked the way I designed my profile. Mark claimed that because he is colorblind it allowed him to see the features on MySpace clearly on my profile… he said that most people designed their pages too dark for him to see anything clearly.

Through that MySpace account Mark Zuckerberg and I became friends… I have a lot of memories attached to that account. Even though all the history I had on that account has been erased… just having that account was sentimental to me… now I no longer have it…

… One of many memories I have is a conversation Mark and I had a few times. We talked about how “cool” it would be to own MySpace one day…

I said it was my dream to own it, It’s because I loved MySpace so much back then… it was very different from what it is today.

I’d talk to Mark about what I’d add to MySpace if it was mine… just… day dreaming beyond wildest dreams… and Mark would say “No… MySpace doesn’t need more features n stuff it needs to be simplified.” and I remember being like NO!!!!!! It would be soooo boring then… I said if anything it needs more features to be better.

… well… look at it now… it’s simplified to hell… to the point of being absolutely useless.

In my opinion… MySpace should just be reinvented and repurposed at this point.

… MySpace is actually a perfect name for a Virtual World… a virtual reality space… maybe something that is compatible with Oculus. My imagination is running wild just thinking about the possibilities with an idea like that.

But Anyway…

I just wanted to share that little random story.
