MySpace launches developer platform

Myspace
MySpace last week launched their Myspace Developer Platform.  This comes eight months after their main rival Facebook launched their developer platform.

The new MySpace Developer Platform site will be open to developers for a month to build and test applications in a live environment before the applications become visible to consumers in March, MySpace said.

In order for applications to experience the same kind of growth on MySpace as they did on Facebook, MySpace must give app developers access to powerful viral marketing channels, while preserving the user experience. Hopefully, MySpace can take best practices from the Facebook Platform’s first 8 months, and avoid a lot of the early issues Facebook developers and users experienced.
