MySpace Announces 'Mashup with Facebook'
MySpace Announces 'Mashup': Facebook Feed Integration
The joint MySpace-Facebook announcement indeed involved an integration of Facebook connectivity into MySpace.
MySpace CEO Mike Jones and Favebook VP Dan Rose announced "Mashup", which allows MySpace users to leverage Facebook Connect to receive updates from their Facebook friends. And, yes, this means that you can log in to MySpace with Facebook.
This move formalizes MySpace's move away from direct competition with Facebook.
New MySpace CEO Mike Jones hosted the conference call to discuss the move. He was accompanied by Facebook's Dan Rose, vice president of partnerships and platform marketing, on the call, who compared MySpace's use of "Mashup" to really any Web site that uses data from Facebook Connect to personalize their sites with that social data.
