Adding A “Make Me A Friend” Link

OK, so this might be the lamest Geek Stuff tip ever, but I found out about it last night and thought it was neat, so I’ll share. If you’re a big MySpace user, and if you have some other web presence – your own website, or a HTML-capable signature on a message board or your email client – it’s really easy to add a “Add Me To Your MySpace Friends” link:

1) Go to your MySpace profile and right-click on the “Add To Friends” link on your profile. Select “Copy Link Location” or “Copy Shortcut”.

2) Open Notepad and paste the link into the editor. The link should look something like this:

http://collect.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=invite.addfriend_
verify&friendID=123456&MyToken=1a2b3c4d5e6f7g8h

3) Delete the “&MyToken=” part, and everything to the right of it, so that your link ends with “&friendID=123456″:

http://collect.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=invite.addfriend_
verify&friendID=123456

4) Use this as your link. In basic HMTL, you can add a link like this:

<a href=”http://collect.myspace.com/index.cfm…”>The Text You Want Displayed</a>
