AFP has reported that MySpace will now allow users to synchronize their updates with Facebook. Instead of competing with Facebook, MySpace now plans to act as a companion to the giant social network.
MySpace recently changed the outlook of their website to be similar to Facebook, allowing users to play games and post messages in real time. They have already allowed users to sync updates with Twitter.
Within the past two years, MySpace has made itself into the ideal social network for musicians and their fans. In a release, MySpace said, "This is particularly exciting for the millions of musicians on MySpace who can now use this tool as a complement to their MySpace Music presence and share their vast library of content.”
As explained in their guide for how to sync, when MySpace users post a message, they simply check boxes to share with Facebook or Twitter or both. Facebook users can see the updates made from MySpace, without having to leave Facebook.
In July, MySpace unveiled plans to “go younger, go youthful” and to focus more on “creativity and self-expression.” They also plan to focus more on casual gaming.
