About a month ago, we’ve heard reports that MySpace and Facebook aren’t quite the archenemies they once were. In fact, MySpace was to reportedly going to implement Facebook Connect which would allow users to log into MySpace with their Facebook credentials.
MySpace has indeed implemented Facebook Connect on its very own Fan Video service. This is a very important step considering MySpace was once the undisputed king of social networking and this arguably signifies the end of the “MySpace era”.
It has become glaringly obvious to MySpace that Facebook has taken over when it comes to growth and overall number of users. As a result, MySpace has chosen to focus itself on a couple of specific niches – music, video and entertainment; all areas which Facebook never fully developed. Considering this recent partnership, I expect more implementations of Facebook Connect on MySpace in 2010.
What are your thoughts? Is this a good move by MySpace / Facebook?
