Myspace does not allow any form of porn or frontal nudity at all so you are safe with that aspect. Myspace also allows privacy as you can make your profile private so only people in your friends list can access it, hince this can create a small problem. Your family and friends wishing to view your photos and such must also have a myspace profile in which you must add them as friends for them to be able to view a private profile otherwise your profile is wide open for anyone to view and comment to. The one good thing about myspace is you can make your photos private so they cannot be downloaded or copied off your profile which is good when it comes to hackers and photo retouch artist that might take your photos and crop them and repost them elsewhere in a manner that you would not like. You may want to experiment with some of the free web design options out there that will make updating your website easier than using the old HTML codes. These sites do that for you and creating a website is as simple as designing things in a publisher type format. Try checking out freewebs.com where you can use your own domain name and its very user friendly on building websites.
I am hoping someone can give me a recommendation for my personal/family website. I built my site a few years ago primarly as a tool for friends/family to be able to see pictures of the kids as they grow. As these sites frequently go, I?ve lagged on keeping it updated. I think the primary reason for this is because I just don?t have time to update the site as it is a hand-built HTML/CSS based site.
I?m considering using a site like Facebook/Myspace/Flikr or something along these lines. These sites seem to be built for what I am wanting to do, but I have a few concerns:
- ideally, I?d keep my own domain name. I guess I could simply forward all traffic to my domain to the hosted site.
- I would like to keep family and friends from accidently coming across a bunch of garbage when exploring my site (porn, music sites, etc).
- Ideally, it would be very easy to load lots of pictures and be able to archive them and be easy to surf. Anyone have any suggestions?
Sorry if I seem to be a bit oblivious on this. I have not spent much time with myspace or anything like this except for seeing some musicians fan sites. Thanks.
