New York, NY (AP) - In a sign of the companies' divergent fortunes,
MySpace says it will let its users log in to their Facebook
accounts through their MySpace page.
Doing so will port the likes and interests they have listed on
their Facebook profiles to MySpace, where they will get a stream of
entertainment content based on these interests.
MySpace users have already been able to sync their status
updates to their Facebook profiles. Thursday's announcement is a
deeper integration of Facebook's technology into MySpace. It
doesn't involve any financial transactions.
Once a mighty rival, MySpace has conceded that it is no longer a
social network but a social entertainment destination -- think MTV
for the Web 2.0 generation. Facebook, meanwhile, is working to
become the social overlay of the Web.
