Texas Community College banned MySpace.com

PLACE2.JPGWhat a strange day today, no new releases except bunch of the tv shows. So I’ll post at least some tech news…

Del Mar College has blocked the popular Web site MySpace.com in response to complaints about sluggish Internet speed on campus computers. August Alfonso, the school’s chief of information and technology, says an investigation found that heavy traffic at MySpace.com was eating up too much bandwidth. He says forty percent of daily Internet traffic at the college involved the site. The schools president, Carlos Garsia, says, “This was more about us being able to offer Web-based instruction, and MySpace.com was slowing everything down.”

The bandwidth problem partly stems from the fact that MySpace.com is heavily used for downloading and uploading video and music clips. Such activities, particularly during peak-use periods, can sap a network of available bandwidth and result in slower access speeds. The site just recently started offering video. Another reason may be the knowledge of MySpace visitors – because most MySpace users are not skilled web developers, this often results in poorly constructed profiles. Such profiles have been known to freeze up web browsers due to malformed coding, or as a result of users placing high bandwidth objects, such as videos and flash, in their profiles.MySpace.com is a social networking site with more 72 million members. It allows users to post searchable profiles that can include photos of themselves and personal details. Anyway, I’m still wondering how comes this may slow down the network so much, this college must have at least 100 Mbit net connection, which should be pretty enough for these activities…

    Actually I was on MySpace for aLONG time before it became so goddamn popular. I didn’t have a profile because MySpace was a place were unknown bands and artists could place their information and a few songs. Now teenagers have completely raped the purpose of the site and it has become some sort of weird new thing everybody seems to be getting addicted to…

    OOh, and dont forget that the police use mySpace to catch criminals too :D

    (Yes, its very wise to do something illegal, video it and then boast on mySpace about what youve done…)
