Mashable, an increasingly influential site that closely follows the social networking realm, recently posted a side-by-side comparison of Myspace and Facebook. It’s no secret that Facebook is undergoing a serious user surge at the moment, and one can’t help but get the feeling that Myspace’s users are increasingly frustrated by cluttered design, constant spam, hacked accounts, etc.

The two sites were judged on five categories: Design, Media, Community, Usefulness, and Ease of Use, with Facebook winning all but one. Check the full side-by-side comparison, with detailed descriptions here.

Mashable deems Facebook the clear winner, saying:

MySpace was a great social network for a while, but now there are too
many spammers and the developers have stopped innovating. Facebook is
just starting to become popular (well, popular with those who were not
on it when it was limited to schools). So, you might want to check it
out, while it’s still cool.

The final sentence there is key. Without continued innovation, flocks of users can easy flow on to the next great thing, leaving big media companies and their pricey acquisitions with jaws agape.
