Ugly when compared to pre-existing notions of taste is a bummer.

But they didn't, and it was crap, and I basically put up a My Space message saying I was moving to Facebook for all the reasons, and that's where people could find me. I totally agree with this, and when Facebook launched it was clear to me that the restrictions it placed on customization of profile pages, and providing smart defaults for layout, don't, and color would make social more functional and valuable for most users. It seemed like an easy way to create a rather customizable web presence. But, yeah, they did avoid the obnoxious ads (at first), and I can visit someone's page without blasting music or getting an eyeful of html poop. I think if they created My Space 2.0 without all the crap (essentially what Facebook did) and made it easy to migrate your accounts and activity, they could have prevented Facebook from taking over social.
