Welcome to the inaugural post of Only Facebook! It seems fitting that we kick off the blog with such breaking news – the Telegraph.co.uk announced earlier today Myspace and Facebook are engaging in talks around sharing content. MySpace’s CEO Owen Van Natta is quoted as saying “we are in talks with Facebook, and other sites, about how we could partner with them.”
The move could potentially see MySpace music and video footage being shared on Facebook via its Connect platform. This would be a huge win for Facebook as Myspace tends to still be the social platform of choice for musicians.
Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook’s chief operating officer, told The Telegraph: “Facebook is focussing on building the best technology which helps people share content, while at MySpace they are focussing on more a content-led strategy. We would like to have their content, as we already do with many other sites, shared across our network because it is good for our users.”
What are you thoughts? Is this a good move by Myspace?
