Do you have a MySpace space? CheckOut

MySpace, one of the largest online communities has a myriad of organizations and individuals developing styles for use with member profiles and "their spaces". One such organization,

The ObsceneCaffeine-- MySpace Layouts focus on cute, feminine and scary styles for the MySpace crowd. The free prefabricated styles I tested with "my space" worked well and provided something other than the default look. My presence on MySpace-- is of a business nature so these styles are not exactly right for "my space" but maybe right for "your space". The styles themselves are well crafted using sophisticated CSS techniques and support most browser platforms.

Another bonus of the ObsceneCaffeine site, the newly created Hot Chicks section which provides female celebrity photos for use on your MySpace profile. In addition, the site boasts any number of other graphics and avatars to use with your MySpace profile.

You can also tweak any of the MySpace Layouts to your liking.

To update your MySpace profile follow these simple instructions:

  1. Login to your MySpace account.
  2. Select the Edit Profile tab.
  3. Edit the About Me section and insert your new CSS style.
  4. Preview the style to see if you like it-- if so, save the changes.
  5. You are done.

ObsceneCaffeine provides free cute styles for the MySpace crowd. The styles are fun, young, attractive and most importantly-- in style.

My style, PlainJane-- QiSoftware@MySpace.
