I'm not cool enough to say "neither", but I pick Facebook b/c it's got a better interface for organizing events with minimal efforts, and isn't littered with flashing banner ads like myspace is

I use Facebook. As others have said, it's just a convenient way of staying up to date with friends and family. And it's fun to share pictures.

I use Facebook because most of my friends do and it is a good way to keep up with those who have moved overseas.

I've noticed that people seem to have drifted away from MySpace to Facebook, some complaining that MySpace has too many "viruses".
