MySpace Gets Social With Google

nternet social networking leader MySpace is joining Google Inc.’s platform for sharing applications across the Web - a concept that threatens to undermine the rapid growth of their common rival, Facebook Inc.

Google trumpeted the MySpace coup Thursday in a meeting with reporters, two days after revealing its plans to create a distribution network for interactive applications known as “widgets.”

The programs - created by a hodgepodge of independent software developers and other Web sites - make it easier to share music, pictures, video and other personal interests on social networking sites.

MySpace, owned by News Corp., was conspicuously absent from the initial list of Web sites that agreed to host the widgets from Google’s “OpenSocial” platform.
