Facebook turns 5, becomes Myspace

It irks me when people identify themselves as 'early adopters'. Always seems like pointless oneupsmanship. I swear, I've never said it.

When it came to Myspace and Facebook, I was an 'early adopter'. Don't know why they both appealed to me so much, or rather, I can't remember anymore, but I jumped on the bandwagon of both early, and enthusiastically.

I do remember graduating to Facebook though(which just turned 5 today), and rejoicing in the lack of lists and surveys and bulletins and pictures of yourself in the mirror and friend hoarding. I admitted in adult circles that I was on Facebook (certainly never made that claim about Myspace).

I've noticed an alarming trend lately on Facebook though. Everyday, a "25 things about me" or a "25 random songs from my ipod" pops up on my feed. I don't like it. So I'm looking for the next place to graduate to. What's the next big social networking site? LinkedIn? Twitter? FriendFeed to my iGoogle page?
