MySpace or Facebook?

Over the weekend, I discussed with the boss whether I should have a MySpace page or a Facebook page. Yes, I could do both, but I want to concentrate on one for now and do the other later. My question is, which should I go with first?

Facebook, while more user-friendly than MySpace, looks to be kinda limited. MySpace, in the meantime, seems to allow for a lot of graphics as well as music in the background, but it looks less orderly than Facebook, as well as being less user-friendly. The boss can help me with Facebook, but he's not familiar with MySpace.

So should we go with what he knows (Facebook) just so that I will have some sort of page up on a social site, or should he try learning MySpace? What do you folks think?

Facebook has a wider, user friendly appeal.
I have tons of Comic related "friends" on Facebook and I don't have to wait for the music to load.

Hi. I'm back. I've been away for a week because I had stuff in real life to deal with.

Now your dilemma...

Personally, If I was you, I'd would go get yourself started with Facebook. Use the knowledge from your boss and friends such as myself.

While I have not used MySpace, and agree that you can use graphics and music to a greater degree, I find the layout is disorganized.

The white space on Facebook is a lot cleaner, and to be honest with you - I don't think having music is on your own page is all that important.

As a comic book buff, you will have an easier time with the interface than MySpace.
