Myspace and facebook war heats up

Breaking now: MySpace, the Web’s largest social network with more than 110 million members, has joined Google’s OpenSocial platform. The New York Times wrote about the effort, designed to counter Facebook, on Tuesday.
The OpenSocial effort is designed to allow third-party developers to create one set of programs that work across many of the Web’s most popular social networks, including LinkedIn, Friendster, Hi5, Bebo, and now MySpace.
Facebook, in contrast, asks developers to create programs for the network in its own proprietary format.
