I get enough emails. I don't see the relevancy of having a myspace or facebook page.
My friends and I hardly bother using email any more, we just message each other on facebook, because we know that if we're online we'll have a FB window open in the background somewhere, and we don't have to worry about is this person at work or at home. An application which replaces email for many people has gotta be significant IMHO.
Facebook and MySpace will soon take the "blog" road. True, most people do have blogs, but how many are actually read and/or maintained?
This is precisely the beauty of Facebook. My friends don't want to read or write essays on 'what i think about stuff' but we do want interesting one line snippets of info on what people are up to, photos they've taken etc. It's not an effort to update, it feels completely natural.
