Facebook coming to MySpace. Wait what?

If we could travel back in time as little as two years ago and look at the social networking war between Facebook and MySpace, we’d remember the cut throat battle that was being waged between the two. My how a couple years change people and companies. This past year has seen MySpace followers defect in record numbers with the once social network falling from it’s high podium. For most, the lack of innovation and overall inability to get past the whole tweenie bopper crowd is the sole cause for MySpace’s decline. Personal opinions aside, I never thought I’d live to see the day MySpace and Facebook teamed up. Perhaps “teamed up” isn’t exactly the most accurate term- more like “borrowing” a feature.

As early as 2010, MySpace could incorporate and rollout Facebook Connect features in many areas site wide which would bridge a monumental gap between the two social networking giants. With the inclusion of Facebook Connect support, MySpace will be able to tap into copious amounts of social demographic data as well as have access to untold amounts of traffic — traffic which MySpace could greatly benefit from. To reiterate, Facebook and MySpace haven’t actually “teamed up”. Instead, MySpace is using one of Facebook’s most useful yet neutral features: Facebook Connect.

For now, both sides are remaining relatively mum on what exactly either company will do in regards to feature support and new developments. If the rapid change in the last two years is any indication, the next two years will be quite a ride. What will MySpace’s Facebook Connect support bring? Leave it inside…
