MySpace to Allow Users to Share Data With Yahoo, Others

Social networking site MySpace said Thursday it will soon enable users to quickly share profile data with Web sites operated by Yahoo, eBay and others.

MySpace aims to save its users keystrokes and allow them to export their photos, videos and lists of friends. Dubbed "Data Availability" initiative, the offering will empower the global MySpace community to share their public profile data to websites of their choice throughout the Internet.

"The walls around the garden are coming down?the implementation of Data Availability injects a new layer of social activity and creates a more dynamic Internet," said Chris DeWolfe, CEO and co-founder of MySpace. "We, alongside our Data Availability launch partners, are pioneering a new way for the global community to integrate their social experiences Web-wide."

Other sites that can receive the MySpace data include Twitter and Photobucket.

The participating sites have a total of 150 million users and reach 85 percent of the Internet market in the United States.

Many users of the sites already have accounts with MySpace, the world's largest social networking site, with 117 million members in more than 20 countries.

MySpace will roll out the new feature in the next several weeks. Among other things, MySpace users could have their default photo and music interests appear in Yahoo Instant Messenger or enrich their eBay profiles to improve exchanges between buyers and sellers.

MySpace users can control what data is provided to other Web sites.

The move is in line with a broader push to make the online profiles of Internet users compatible with multiple Web sites.

Last June, five companies including Google, Microsoft and Yahoo formed the OpenID Coalition to create a single username and password for people to use across the Internet.

Google, Yahoo and MySpace also announced in March the creation of the OpenSocial Foundation to create a common coding standard for social networking applications that work across the Web.
