I never use Myspace - it's ugly, slow and hard to navigate. But the real reason I got rid of it is this: when I do a Google image search of my name, this sort of crap pops up. I mean, honestly. When people search my name they should get images of my artwork, not images of sparkly, pouting, thumb-sucking girls dressed in wonder woman outfits. It's certainly not representative of me and I'd rather it didn't get served up as if it was.
You know, it feels really good to have these social media sites out of my life. I've always felt a little at odds with them, a little exposed and a little exploited by them.
