Day 10: The Letter

by ashleighpenrod

Remember Myspace?

The word on the street is that it’s coming back, looking snazzier than ever.

In honor of its pending reintroduction to the mainstream social media-sphere, I dug up the farewell letter I wrote to it back in April 2008 (for real).

Dear Myspace,

You have been a loyal cyber network and a wonderful time waster to me all these years. We have shared many good memories together and no one can take the good times away from us.

I, however, am taking my page away from you. I feel as though our html is going in different directions; spending time with you has become an afterthought for me. You deserve better.  Much better.

You deserve someone who will pour over your pages and love you for what you are. Someone who will take the time to find elementary school friends, befriend their friends’ alt rock band pages and actually listen to music. Someone who will make fake pages about fake cats and cultivate fake friendships with other fake animals. I cannot do these things for you. I just don’t have the time.

I wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors. Perhaps we shall meet again.

I will never forget you.



P.S. If you don’t mind, please tell your networkers they can find me on Facebook. (And yes, you were always prettier than Facebook.)
