MySpace Connects with Facebook, on Fan Video Site at Least
Not so long ago, it was rumored that Facebook Connect will be implemented on MySpace. That means, you can now login to your MySpace account via Facebook’s single sign on facility. And that also means that you can easily share your MySpace’s actvities on your Facebook account. Yes, that’s the advantage of using Facebook Connect.
But after that, the news just simply died down. We haven’t heard anything about it until now. It looks like the facility is being quietly rolled out. At least on MySpace Fan Video site. If you check it out right now, a box with “Connect with Facebook” option will be displayed. And clicking that will trigger the usual Facebook Connect process, that Â includes you logging in to the MySpace Fan Video site using your Facebook credentials.
It’s a pretty neat and simple integration process, that you wouldn’t think that it has no great impact to both sites. Actually it has. It will open up more opportunities for both MySpace and Facebook. Although we’re not really counting on a future merger. It’s a far-fetched idea. Â But this is a good start for the two rivals to start mutually operating in a harmonious manner. Bottomline of it all is that we, social networking users stand to benefit later on.
If you want to try this feature out, just visit MySpace Fan Video site, login with your Facebook profile, select videos from the available music videos of current popular artists and start sharing them with your friends and family on Facebook and Twitter as well.
