Do you guyz know that myspace is most popular site on the web, outnumbering Big Brother Google in pageviews. On september 8, 2006 it had 106 million registered accounts with 230.000 new ones added daily. So considering that I decided to create something myspace users can make use of, a list of tools/websites for creating original and unique profiles.

Myspace Avatars

Meez – create virtual 3D animated image of yourself and put it on your profile (Recommended)
MySpaceAvatars – plain image avatars (browse down by category)

Mygen – very detailed and powerful profile creator/editor
Thomas’ Myspace Editor – user friendly but rather limited
Myspaceeditor – can’t do much with this one, but if you need something on the spot give it a try
