Default Confirmed: MySpace Joining Google's OpenSocial

Now, it's getting interesting: News Corp.'s MySpace is joining Google's just-announced OpenSocial program. That's Google's shot at one-upping Microsoft and Facebook in the race to get outside software developers to create programs for social networks.......(more here):

I think Myspace is owned by Fox...
But I can see the partnership going a long way. The tech-heads at Google are also real people, they know what's up, unlike Microshaft.

It's neater but the friend status thing is a joke, my band's profile has 1690 friends haha how annoying. Who the hell signs onto Myspace every 2mins to update what they're currently doing and pick which smilie reflects their emotions? I pick 'devious' cause it goes with my profile's colours... Facebook? I don't even know what that is haha but interesting article.
