MySpace Joining Google's OpenSocial: Confirmed

Rob Hof

A number of blogs, including Silicon Alley Insider and TechCrunch, say they've confirmed that News Corp.'s MySpace is joining Google's just-announced OpenSocial program. (Update: I'm at the press conference at Google, and the two companies just confirmed it.) OpenSocial is Google's shot at one-upping Facebook in the race to get outside software developers to create programs for social networks. While it wouldn't be entirely surprising, given Google's ad deal with MySpace, such an agreement would be a huge win for Google's plan to stake out a place on the social Web.
