LostCherry Takes Aim at MySpace

by

I’ve held forth many times on the myriad threats facing MySpace, but the real threat to MySpace dominance is evident in the scores of aspiring MySpace killers that have been filling up my inbox with solicitations (given the publicity I’ve received as a MySpace skeptic). I thought I would take a refreshingly constructive approach to the MySpace conundrum by showcasing some of the companies that are out to eat their lunch. Here is the first in a series.

LostCherry Logo

LostCherry is an aspiring MySpace killer that is taking direct aim at many of MySpace’s most conspicuous vulnerabilities. They even have a top 5 list:

LostCherry MySpace Sucks

What’s really interesting about LostCherry is not that they’re taking potshots at MySpace but that they have focused on MySpace’s shortcomings as an opportunity to innovate with new features and new platforms for socializing:

Upload 100 PHOTOS into your own albums – even directly from your cell phone!

Instantly preview any member by hovering over their photo.

Instant alerts on your homepage when a friend uploads a photo or leaves you a comment.

Use the Shoutboxâ„¢ on your homepage and instantly private message anyone on LostCherry.

Trust System…No Big Brother here to delete profiles or photos. The community regulates what it sees.

LostCherry has a point system that encourages usage and also provides the basis for some ecommerce revenue opportunities in the works:

What are Cherry Points?
You earn points while you surf and use LostCherry. When you reach a certain level, you will unlock features and benefits such as increased photo storage, highlighted nickname, etc. You can see your point total on your home page or profile page. Cherry Points also help your Cherry Ranking.

Points are awarded when you:

* Rate a photo
* Leave a photo comment
* Upload a photo
* Leave a comment
* Change your trackz
* Rate a member’s profile
* Upload a mobile photo
* Someone becomes your fan
* Someone adds you as a friend
* Take someone’s cherry comment
* Configure your mobile phone
* Configure your trackz
* Successfully invite someone to join LostCherry (500 points each!!!)

What are Cherry Bucks?
As you earn Cherry Points, you will also earn Cherry Bucks. You can use these Cherry Bucks to buy virtual gifts for anyone on LostCherry! Use them to either flirt, cheer someone up, or just for fun! You will find the LostCherry Gift Shop link on a member’s profile page in the top left section.

LostCherry members can earn their way up through a hierarchy of Account/Member levels that range from “Freshmeat” to “Cherry Idol,” which drives utilization through ego stroking.

Based on what I heard from Dave Yoo of Lost Cherry, they are focused on non-advertising revenue models, a refreshing change from the pedestrian focus on advertising that has emanated from the MySpace camp (and most of Web 2.0 for that matter):

The conventional “get more page views for ad revenue” model is not something we are relying on. Our main focus is to follow the eBay model and be the best at facilitating user-to-user & user-to-community interactions. We believe that we accomplish this, and the revenue streams will present themselves naturally. As one example, we currently have a “Cherry Blast” feature that members can use to reach the entire user base for $5 to $15 depending on duration that is showing quite a bit of traction. We don’t allow Blasts for commercial purposes, but only for members.

Lost Cherry is also looking to innovate on the content control front by enabling the community to police itself (certainly a more 2.0 approach than MySpace’s 100+ on-staff site police):

1. Our site makes it very clear when someone is a “veteran” and subsequently a trusted member of LostCherry. We do this by bolding and changing the color of their nickname (you might’ve seen the different colors on our ticking online user bar) as well as calling out their level on their profile page…again not unlike the seller/buyer rating system on eBay. Interestingly enough, these members have taken upon themselves the role of keeping LostCherry a safe place and almost “bully” out people who harass or act inappropriately. Yes, this may possibly restrict growth, but we feel it’s for the right reason.

2. Due to the immediate risk of adult content being uploaded, the team has designated 6 members (and more as needed) with whom we have gone to great lengths to develop a strong relationship to help regulate this content. We call them LostCherry “Bouncers” instead of Moderators to keep our edgy motif. We provide some basic guidelines as well as multiple ways to contact us for any gray area issues. All in all, we feel we have a constantly evolving policing methodology in place that has and will scale as we grow.

Given that they are not depending on the good grace of advertisers, they don’t have the same concerns as MySpace does over how content appears to big brands.

It’s notable that LostCherry is also addressing privacy concerns with their approach to online conversation:

What is my Shoutboxâ„¢?
Your Shoutboxâ„¢ is your private chat area — only you can read the messages inside your Shoutboxâ„¢. With this feature you can instantly chat with anyone on LostCherry. You can send someone a shout in three ways:

1) Click on the shoutbox links throughout LostCherry (i.e. on a member profile in the upper left hand side, on a bulletin, etc.) or
2) Click on the users name when it appears in your shoutbox.
3) Use the ‘IM:’ field inside the window that pops up when you preview a profile.

Can anyone read my Shoutboxâ„¢?
No — only you can read the messages inside your Shoutboxâ„¢.

LostCherry only has 49,000 members, just a drop in MySpace’s 80 million user bucket — but then it wasn’t too long ago that MySpace had only 49,000 users. The pace of viral adoption is truly astonishing.

LostCherry vs. MySpace

And with a name like LostCherry, they certainly compete with MySpace on edginess.

It will be interesting to see whether LostCherry can capitalize on the fickle teen’s quest for what’s new and hip.

UPDATE

Based on comments on this post and many more at Digg, LostCherry has some passionate users. There is also evidence in these comments that MySpace is gaining a reputation among (former) users as a place for young teens, pedophiles, and the police.

UPDATE #2

This post was unceremoniously “buried” at Digg — read more about it.

  1. , but only because MySpace has the bigger userbase, which makes it more likely that you’ll find your friends there. Nonetheless, if LostCherry can win over even a tiny fraction of the MySpace population, they’ll be doing great. [IMG] [viaPublishing 2.0] [IMG]

  2. From Scott Karp: Yesterday,I wrote about LostCherry, a would-be MySpace killer. Someone posted the story to Digg, and it began rapidly garnering “diggs” and a slew of comments from enthusiastic LostCherry users. Apparently, the Digg Nazis didn’t like this. The story was “

  4. Sounds like a site for Lolitas and the men who (illegally) love them,. Lost Cherry? Are they kidding?

  5. Scott, I dig the post. But do you think that MySpace is vulnerable because of its feature set? I’m not sure myself, but there are definitely some other factors at play there. MySpace users derive a social benefit that goes beyond number of uploaded pictures, or top 8 friends, etc. What’s more, I would argue that a service like LostCherry would actually have limited appeal, especially because of its name. One of the most powerful reasons that MySpace is successful because it’s a tabula rasa for everyone, and doesn’t impose its own style on the user.

    Regardless, I look forward to your next MySpace killer post.

    Cheers,
    -s.

  6. Ted, be careful before somebody accuses you of being an old man railing against Elvis (happens to me all the time). I did have a similar reaction to the name — the bet is that this kind of (perhaps over the) edginess is an asset rather than a liability. It will be interesting to see how it plays out.

    Steve, “features” is one of the theories as to why MySpace beat Friendster — features are not an end unto themselves, of course, sbut rather a way to enhance the socializing that is the objective of users. Again, the name is part of the bet. I would argue that MySpace has itself become uch an outsized universally recognizable brand that it detracts from the tabula raza feel. Also, socializing on LostCherry has elements of a game, and gaming is, well, quite hot.

    Us old folks can speculate all we want — the kids will ultimately decide.

  7. “the kids will ultimately decide”

    Indeed… with a little buzz for a kickstart.

    There is nothing I see here, however, that will keep this service from facing the same negatives that MySpace is dealing with eventually, especially since they are all related to scale.

  8. We actually named LostCherry after a mixed drink: http://www.drinksmixer.com/drink6852.html. With respect to the branding aspects around the name and its shock value, I’d like to call up the branding phenomenon around the restaurant chain “Hooters.” Who would have thought that you could create a successful restaurant chain based on families eating buffalo wings at a restaurant that connotes female mammary glands? I went into a Hooters restaurant last weekend and I saw kids and grandparents eating hot wings served by busty waitresses in too small tops and shorts.

  9. When MySpace started taking off I started researching reasons why it was becoming so hot and the most telling comment I ran across was this one by Steve Ametjan, who was a programmer at MySpace in the early days, and this is what he said:

    “The reason that MySpace became as popular as it is, was for a couple of different reasons. 1) Tom, Chris, and a number of the other people who started MySpace new the LA club scene. They used this to their advantage. By attracting the scenesters they were able to draw in other people as well. 2) At the time that MySpace was getting started, Friendster was going to change their service from a free site to a pay site. People unwilling to pay for a service then started switching to MySpace as the news of the site filtered through Friendster. 3) Few of the other community sites like Friendster and MySpace allow the personalization of profile pages like MySpace allows. On top of that, the fact that there was no easy “Profile Builder” in MySpace made it feel as if you were elite if you could create the CSS to customize your page.

    When you look at the combination of all those factors its easy to see how, in spite of the design, the community grew to what it is today. ”

    I would add to that MySpace’s association with the alternative music scene and the ease in which it enabled new musicians and bands to promote themselves. It offered a way for musicians and bands to bypass the traditional recording industry route and take their work directly to their audience AND it allowed its members a chance to communicate directly with performers and bands in a way that had rarely been done before.

    So there seem to be 4 keys to competing with MySpace:

    1. Attract a core group of “scenesters”, connectors, influencers, opinion makers, etc., of sufficient size to make the site seem “cool”. LostCherry seems to be trying to do this but I am not so sure how successful they are or will be. I do agree that the name will put a lot of people off and likely restrict their growth. I can see this site growing to a few million members at best but I have a hard time seeing them going beyond that because of the way they seem to be positioning themselves.

    2. Lots of personalization features. This is extremely important. LostCherry’s offering of virtually unlimited pictures and the other features they are offering are very good. If they can keep all of these features from slowing down the site as more people sign on then this is definitely a strong step in the right direction and something they can use to their advantage. Their use of a point system and making the site similar to a game is also a nice touch. But, on the other hand, these are all things that a MySpace could also implement at some point too.

    3. Association with some aspect of the entertainment industry and enabling site members to reach out and develop direct “relationships” with the performers involved. MySpace did this with music. LostCherry seems to be perhaps attempting this too but it will be hard to make significant inroads here against MySpace’s first mover advantage. Emphasizing something other than the music scene where MySpace is not as strong, but which also retains the “cool” factor, would probably work better.

    4. MySpace screws up. Just as Friendster dropped the ball when they had a big lead by letting rumors get around that they were converting from a free to a pay site, MySpace could open the doors to a competitor in a similar manner.

    Just about every company makes a bad move at some point in their lifespan. In my opinion, the next MySpace will be the company that stays focused on doing the first three things listed above better than anyone else and just patiently waiting for the fourth.

  10. lost cherry rocks. there is so much more to do there.

  11. I’ve had lost cherry for a few short weeks, and I tell you the people are awesome, Myspace is great to find old friends but I tell you I send invites to everyone I know on myspace to LC. It’s faster paced, Myspace id great for dial up users, I on the other hand have broadband and I enjoy being able to read stuff live rather than wait for a message to be responded and you know who’s looking at your profile at all times, it’s great I love it!!!!

  12. i just wanna say i love lostcherry best site i have ever been on ! and can do so much stuff and alot of people r sooo nice and careing , and can do alot more then myspace , i keep telling anyone i know about this site, i just hope one day i have all my pics at a top spot , maybe somday rock on lostcherry keep kicking myspace butts!

  13. MySpace is WAY to Big Brother! Not everyone who has a blog..etc is a pedifile trowling for victums, so why does MySpace treat all its members like their perverts? Not to mention the picture limit, info on your page deleted if the “Powers That Be’ don’t care for it…etc.
    LC is the place to hang out if your into Free Expression, meeting cool people, hanging out and having fun.
    MySpace should take a lesson from LC if it wants to continue to exisit in Cyber Space.
    Later days,
    Lapus

    I just wanted 2 say that I personally Love Lost cherry!!!! I have been a myspace member for alittle while. Once i checked out Lost Cherry I realized that people at Myspace are not as down to earth, and some of them are really fake! Which is why Lost cherry kicks myspace butt! The top five reasons why myspace sucks are totally and fully 100% true! I love Lost cherry!!! They rock, thats why they kick myspace butt!!! P0P!!!!

  15. I have been a member of MySpace for over 3 years and only have 3 friends. I joined LostCherry on March 6, 2006 and already have almost 200. I chat with quite a few of them daily. I’ve chatted with maybe a couple from MySpace…so who do you think I choose? LOSTCHERRY IS THE BEST!!!

  16. Is LostCherry Better Than MySpace?…

    LostCherry is yet another social networking site that wants to give MySpace a run for its money. It joins Tagworld, Bebo, AIMPages and a host of other sites in the battle for the youth market.
    LostCherry is trying to hit MySpace where it hurts – i…

  19. [...] So, while I was bouncing around on LC today, there was talk of an article that was written about it. So I went over to digg.com to see what was being said. The article itself talked about what LostCherry had that myspace didn’t, and what LC was doing right that myspace wasn’t. It seemed that the comments were divided into 3 areas: 1) people who would rather run down LC than give it a shot, usually making fun of the name 2) those who gave it a shot and loved it 3) and one person (as of my last reading) who tried it and didn’t like it.

  20. i’m new to lost cherry, but it does seem like a nifty little website. i think it has a bright future ahead of it.

  21. >>We actually named LostCherry after a mixed drink

    And what is the mixed drink referring to?

    And you worried about the easily-located lewdness on MySpace, Scott? Sheesh!

  22. MySpace vs. Lost Cherry?
    Most reasonable people are looking for a place where they can encounter new and interesting people, without all the B.S. that comes with being online. Buy B.S., I’m talking about the jokesters who just want to leave rude comments, harrass and insult. We all have dealt with them, and looks like it will always be part of the “online experience”.
    Who are the people doing this? We all don’t really need a survey to figure this out. Young,immature teens and more than a few 20 somethings (for all you 30+’s, GROW UP) Unfortunatly,MySpace has become infested with these types. You can’t blame the kids, they don’t know any better. This is what has become of a great idea,that has gotton out of control,for lack of “self policing”. We’ve heard the stories, this stuff does happen in other sites, but MySpace has seem to have gotton to big for it’s own good.
    Lost Cherry is like the new kid on the block. Sleek,Shiney full of Pizzazz. Their members are mature, have more respect for each others privacy. There is really no need to do full fledged searches to find someone available to chat with. Because of their “Awards” system, you can usually find a willing “chatmate”,day or night. You can buy a vareity of gifts from flowers to bottles of beer for your friends.
    Let me add my vote to all the Lost Cherry souls, and to all you immature little boys and girls,once you grow up, Lost cherry will have a place for you

  23. As one of the earliest members, not talked into joining because I had friends who helped run or promote Lost Cherry, I have an intimate view of the site. My join date is Nov, 29 2005 and since that time I have become one of the main personalities on The LC. I never had a sense that people actually wanted to reach out to you as a friend on Myspace. The LC does have a social networking backbone but its so much more than that. Whereas Myspace has members who seek friends as numbers and as a way of branding themselves, The LC actually has members who reach out to you on a daily basis just because you are a part of thier team. Of course this could very well take a different shape as membership expands, I forsee people to still feel uniquely connected by the edgey nature of the site. It gives them the sense that they are on the inside track and know something you don’t. Even with the site growing by leaps and bounds, you never get the sense that you are just a number. While “Tom” sits back counting his money (with the occational “MySpace isn’t closing” bulletin), the owner of Lost Cherry (Mike) presents himself as just another member. How many times has “Tom” talked to you? The LC has taken all of the good qualities of Myspace and have improved on them while introducing new features (with many more to come). Go ahead and take a chance. You may come away pleasantly surprised and gain an actual friend instead of a MySpace “friend whore”.

  24. [...] Yesterday, I wrote about LostCherry, a would-be MySpace killer. Someone posted the story to Digg, and it began rapidly garnering “diggs” and a slew of comments from enthusiastic LostCherry users. [...]

  25. It's all About Me

    Lost Cherry is so much better then myspace. It’s more for the adults, not the kiddies. Plus you get so much more on the LC. More Pictures, Chats that actually work, and the best of all, a site that doesn’t take 10 minutes to log into (and I have high speed access!)

    Just thought I would show some LC luv out on every site. Check out the site…it’s awesome!

  26. I LOVE LC I have myspace and lost cherry…I use both reguraly but I can spend hours on the LC with friends becuase of how polite people are there. Not any of the “I dont know u dont use me as a number” crap like at myspace. PLUS lostcherry is WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY faster!!!!!!

    Oh and no TOM :-)

  27. Interesting view point. I am a fellow myspacers and love the oportunity it brings for me to socialize with past friesnts and meet new peope. I’m a newbie to lc and growing to love it. I’m sure it will be no time until the cops try and do the same on lc as they have on myspace.

  28. I think myspace is more like a fraternity, and LostCherry.com is more like a gang.

    Where myspace is mainly about creating, self serving, superficial relationships —
    LostCherry’s foundation is a core group of individuals with deep loyalty to each other
    and an inherent interest in supporting the entire community. Loyal enough to have one
    of their shortys stick a shiv into you if you cross the wrong person. Word to yo muffler.

  29. I have joined litteraly dozens of “community” based sites over the years, and lost cherry by far is the BEST I have ever been a member of, the site itself is revolutionary in the way everything works, combining some of the best aspects of many other sites ive seen and a few things they came up with that are completely unique in their use and execution, I have not found one aspect of this site that I dont like, and I cant say that about any other site ive ever joined, definately not about myspace,lol…And the best part is that the COMMUNITY polices content, when we see something innapropriate whether it be pics or behaviour, we flag it, they check it out, and its taken care of, the site is kept safe by the community, not by a few mods with no real connection to the community or even worse, ones on a power trip like most mods seem to have…

    So, in short, Lost Cherry is by far the best community based site on the web because of its fresh and innovative approach to site design, community, security, and most importently to me at least, services and site features.

  30. Luv of a community

    I’ve been a “Lost Cherry” member since January of this year. I’ve been a “My Space” ex-member since I’ve found the “LC”
    *interesting how that works, eh*

    In my time at “Lost Cherry” I’ve never looked back. The only reason I find my self visiting My Space is to recruit (the few cool people I’d met there) to join the “LC” circle of friends. In those few times (after the long wait to long-on) it didn’t take me very long to figure out why I happily chose “Lost Cherry” over the other.

    I’ve joined and watched other communities grow: OkCupid, Live Journal for instance …
    they all seemed to fizzle out and treat the members like another number. Were Mike (aka: Baby Jesus) IS part of the community. He’s always open for suggestions -yet- Very hands-off on how the members keep the “riff-raft” from destroying a great place to hang out and socialize.

    In the little time I’ve been a part of the Lost Cherry scene, I’ve seen improvements and great strides made to keep the site updated and running smoothly. Besides the fact it’s got some of the nicest people running it & being outstanding members.

    I recommend any doubter and unbelievers to come check out the site.
    If you think “My Space” is where its at – You’re in the “Wrong Space”.

  31. Nikki "Aka" Sexc Princess

    Ive been a member on Lost Cherry since january this year there has been 3 days where i havent logged on im literally addicted!! ive been on MySpace twice i did have a page but it honnestly took me like 10mins to load the damn page and thats without a layout and anything Lost Cherry takes not even a minute its so quick so much more to do there i agree with the person that said we are a gang we all stick by each other i dunno bout tom from MySpace but id prefer to be Baby jesus and have 56,000 LOYAL users that log on at least once a day then have 80 million like Tom with majority of those users maybe loggin in once a month cos MySpace is so god damn slow i was looking at a friends page the other day on Myspace and she was uploading pictures for me too look at by the end of it i looked at 3 new pictures in 2 hours!! i could of looked at 300 pictures in 2 hours on Lost Cherry!! Easy! Rock on L.C We love you!! *Mmwahz*

  32. I absolutely love the LC!! It is by far the best site on the internet. I used to actively be a part of myspace until I found the LC. Since then I have pretty much left myspace alone. I have many more “true” friends on LC than I ever could have hoped to have on myspace, there are just too many “friend whores” there.

  33. [...] Two recent launches in the social networking space seem to point the way for the next round of MySpace killer speculation. One is LostCherry, a professedly "edgier" social networking site that, as Scott Karp comments, even publishes a list of "MySpace’s most conspicuous vulnerabilities" (including what I think is going to be the long-term biggie – "undercover cops patrolling the site like Big Brother"). The second is SmutVibes (which site is not remotely work safe, so the above link points instead to an excellent TechCrunch review). SmutVibes is like a pornolized MySpace, with nude photos not only allowed but positively encouraged and the whole site overtly purposed as an adult site where users can have uncensored, explicit conversations.What’s so interesting about SmutVibes is not the prurient content – the web is hardly short of amateur porn – but that it’s based in Jamaica yet clearly aimed at an international digital audience. Such is the unfettered globalism of the web. Now, the one and only thing I know about Jamaican law is that – like the Swedish law governing PirateBay or the Russian law governing AllofMP3 – it isn’t made in response to the fears of US and European parents surrounding the activities of their children online. As Mike asks over at TechCrunch, "How will teens be kept safe from SmutVibes? Laughably perhaps, registration is not allowed for those who provide a birth date indicating that they are less than 18 years old. Hmmm…don’t think that’s going to be enough." And indeed, if SmutVibes was run by a US or European media company it would be nothing like enough either in legal or PR terms. Perhaps in Jamaica though this meagre nod at age screening will suffice.Even if Jamaica is not the perfect example, sooner or later we are going to see the creation of a social networking site aimed at a global audience but based in a territory whose laws allow the owners to keep it genuinely uncensored, genuinely unscrutinised and genuinely unconcerned about screening out teens. (If all else failed possibly that bastion of extra-territorial libertarianism Sealand would suffice.) I’ve argued before that what will kill MySpace is that its owners, News Corp, cannot preserve the illusion of freedom from adult scrutiny that brought the teens there in the first place. LostCherry is a well thought-out attempt at a return to imaginary anarchy, but the site is moderated, it does have a policy on explicit content and it is perfectly apparent that anything does not in fact go. We are still waiting, I believe, for the launch of the MySpace killer that combines the most disruptive features of LostCherry and SmutVibes with those of PirateBay or AllofMP3 – an edgy, well-designed web2.0 social networking application based somewhere on the territorial and legal periphery where the freedom from scrutiny of even US and European teenage users is not merely a crafted marketing illusion but a reality founded on the (locally) legally-protected resistence of the site owners to external pressure.

  34. come on !!!! LOST CHERRY WTF IS THAT ?? I MEAN MYSPACE IS THE BEST AND ALL THE WANNA MYSPACE WEBSITES SUX !! I LOVE MYSPACE AND I WOULD NEVER JOIN LOST CHERRY !

    GO MYSPACE !!!

    BUUUU !!! LOSTCHERRY !

  35. Lost Cherry is indeed better than myspace. It is more interactive and profiles ARE NOT private. I am posting a bulletin on myspace now to get all the members there to join, and also putting it on my web site :) I LOVE THIS WEB SITE!

  36. Lost Cherry is so much better than My Space for alot of reasons like yes it is a hell of alot more interactive with its users and the users are more active with each other like comments and posts all of that its awesome. I would never choose My Space over Lost Cherry

  37. [...] In the news: LostCherry Takes Aim at MySpace (6/13/06) [...]

  38. [...] http://publishing2.com/2006/06/13/lostcherry-takes-aim-at-myspace/ [...]

  39. HOW DO YOU GET A PAGE AT LOST CHERRY ?

  40. I checked out LostCherry and I believe it’s the same company as MySpace. The sign up format is identical. Not to mention the About me section is suspect.

  41. I have only been with LC for about a week now, and I have to say that I love it. I do have a myspace but haven’t done anything with it since I don’t understand how to fix up my page. On LC it is easy and they have premade skins for us computer stupid people out here. Also you can rip other’s skins and use them on yours. Everything has easy to understand explainations, so you don’t go crosseyed trying to figure it out.

    The people on LC are the best, and are always willing to make friends. On the first day I joined I had several people come by and leave me a 10 and left comments stating that they would like to have me add them as a friend or fan. Nothing like that ever happened on myspace. Now I have several friends and fans and have gotten a few of my real life friends to join LC also, we all give it an A+++++.

  42. I just checked out this Lost Cherry. It seems pretty cool. But very similar to Myspace. The problem I see with it is the same problem Myspace is having. Too many teenie boppers, and pedophiles. I’d like to see how they manage 100 pictures per person when they start getting millions of users.

    If you’re in college, and want a site just for college students, checkout CollegeTonight. Now that Facebook has decided to follow the Myspace format, and open it’s access to anyone on the planet, college students need a new place to go. College Tonight has come along at the perfect time. It is a college site and it’s all about nightlife. Plus, you don’t have to worry about teenie boppers or pedophiles. Only users with a .edu email address are able to join.

  43. It sounds to me like you are all looking for a site that you can do anything on. That does not sound safe to me. Sites are safe when there are “cops” making sure there are no perverts or anything going wrong. I have 12 pics on MySpace and they are of me and my family. Who would want to put 100 pictures on your own site. What do you plan on doing on LostCherry. And the name LostCherry, a drink? I looked it up and it sound really nasty. Anyway, Good Luck!

  44. well i dont know what to really say but i think myspace is gay. and so is this lost cherry thing too. why? b/c you want to meet ppl. and thats about the obly reason why. so you get on this website thinking your gonna find friends. what ever happen to going out and meeting them in real life. see what there really about. your’ll never find the one on a web site. grow-up and find life. peace
