Just because Facebook has more total users and just released Facebook Connect for iPhone doesn’t mean that MySpace is any less relevant.
In fact, they’ve been avidly working behind the scenes to support open standards in ways that are pretty revolutionary. Today their efforts have come to fruition with some major new announcements for MySpaceID, their identity platform that goes head-to-head with Facebook Connect.
|MySpaceID will now pull in a member’s full profile to support streaming of user activities from MySpace to any site on the Web, it now integrates with OAuth and OpenID, and developers can get access to new MySpaceID SDKs. Also big news is that MySpace has partnered with Yahoo! to support MySpaceID login on Yahoo’s home page.|
