Myspace quizzes are popular because they provide virtually unlimited opportunities to make your Myspace page a place that people will want to visit over and over again. An added bonus is that your Myspace visitors wonï¿½t be the only ones to enjoy them; you will have fun making them up. There are lots of quiz makers on the Internet; Google around to see which one you like best. But before you grab pen and paper (or keyboard), stop! The fact that quizzes allow for so much creativity also means that they require a bit of forethought. Itï¿½s incredibly annoying to write one, only to realize that it doesnï¿½t make sense ï¿½ or to get stuck in the middle without a clue of how to continue. Here are some tips on how to get focused so that you can write a Myspace quiz with minimum frustration and maximum fun. There are four main factors to consider when writing Myspace quizzes: 1) Subject 2) Type 3) Content 4) Length 1) Subject. You want to choose a subject that will be fun to write and will still accomplish its purpose (bringing more visitors to your page). That means that it has to be interesting to you as well as to the types of Myspace friends you want to make. While some interests can be universal, others are very specific ï¿½ and you want your quizzes to appeal to the greatest number of people possible . So if you love movies, and you enjoy talking to people about the movies theyï¿½ve seen, then writing up different kinds of movie quizzes would be a great idea for you. (Some ideas: General Hollywood trivia, guess-which-movie, specific movie trivia, and movie quotation quizzes.) If youï¿½re a people-watcher, then personality quizzes might be the way to go ï¿½ quizzes like which horoscope should you be, what do your eyes say about you, which colors match your personality best, etc. If you love politics, then current events and Washington personality quizzes could work. Since all of these subjects also go under the category of general interest ï¿½ meaning, they interest lots of different kinds of people ï¿½ you can feel free to write quizzes about them. However, even if you happen to be fascinated with the migration habits of monarch butterflies, writing a quiz about them will probably not increase your Myspace visitors by an appreciable margin. I think you get the picture. 2) Type. Will your quiz be multiple choice, fill in the blank, or free choice ï¿½ meaning , questions that are multiple choice but have no right or wrong answer? To a certain extent, this depends on the subject of your quiz. Trivia questions generally lend themselves to multiple choice or fill in the blank answers, as do ï¿½guess whichï¿½ï¿½ quizzes. Free choice answers are more for personality-type quizzes like the ones mentioned above. Just be sure to consider the amount of time itï¿½ll take you to write them up. Multiple choice questions are easy. But if youï¿½re writing a quiz like ï¿½if you were a cartoon character, who would you be?ï¿½, then youï¿½re going to have to come up with results for every possible combination of answers. While this is obviously much harder, they are also the quizzes that are most fun for people to do. So think about how much time and effort you want to invest before deciding on your answer type. 3) Content. Content and pictures that are either offensive or vulgar will not be appreciated by most people who visit your site. Although some think that these are great attention-grabbers, the attention is short-lived. In the long run, people may be very turned-off. And wouldnï¿½t it be a shame to put effort into a quiz and then find out that the number of your Myspace visitors went down? 4) Length. Quizzes can range from one-answer to as many as you like. Keep in mind, though, that people donï¿½t want to spend more than a few minutes doing a quiz. So I wouldnï¿½t recommend more than ten or twelve questions at most.
