Please help! Getting unwanted MySpace friends without any a

Postby Stevo » Mon Feb 07, 2011 6:23 am

Hey gang. I feel like a tard asking a question about MySpace. I know its relevance as a website is nearly over, but we still have a band profile that I don't want to abandon quite yet.

However for the last few months, perhaps since a redesign/relaunch, we've been getting a bunch of people adding themselves as Friends, but we're not getting any chance to Approve them first.

Has it always been that way and I'm just losing my mind, or aren't you supposed to get a notification allowing you to Approve or Deny Friend requests?

The approval function is turned on and working for Comments, but I've been through every page of settings (security, profile, etc.) at least twice and I can't find any place where I can turn Approval on or off for Friend requests.

If anyone can shed any light on this for me, I'd sure appreciate it!

I'm much more interested a competition to fill in the rest of the "a" word.

I'm going with 'arse pictures'.

I would leave a message on your Mysapce profile telling everyone and anyone where you prefer to interact with them.

Come to my Facebook Page, or my Stevo blog
.... will do much better for gathering new friends and fans that bothering with Myspace anymore.

Of course that's just my opinion... but my new career is in exactly this field.

Time spent on Myspace is generating limited results. You want new friends, fans or sales. Myspace doesn't do that nearly as well as a Facebook band page would, or especially a blog about your band.

Thanks for the uh, help there folks...

I guess I didn't pose my question well or no one who knows the answer (or cares :oops: )

I'm not trying to get Friends on MySpace, and I know the site is a wasteland. But people are Friending us without requiring any approval by us.

Is it broken? Or is there a setting for that somewhere that I can't find?

Does FB or any social network ever allow that to happen?

It is really annoying because our Friends list used to be mostly people & bands that we actually knew and now it's being overrun by complete strangers (mostly hip-hop dudes) that obviously are not fans of our music, and I can't stop it.


"Help, I need somebody!" :cry:

I can't even be bothered to delete all the grossly reformatted pages of various bands on the space. they'll be gone soon enough cus that's what happens to whatever the partovis get into regarding indie music.
you can't handle the truth.
