MySpace launches "Data Availability" initiative

MySpace has moved to allow its members to share their public profile with other websites around the web.

Called the "Data Availability" initiative, MySpace members will now be able to share their profile with Yahoo, eBay, Photobucket, and Twitter.

"The walls around the garden are coming down - the implementation of Data Availability injects a new layer of social activity and creates a more dynamic Internet", said Chris DeWolfe, CEO and co-founder of MySpace.

Rather than updating information across the web for each site where a user spends time, the initiative lets a user update their profile in one place and dynamically share that information with the other sites.

Users will be able to dynamically share the content and data of their choosing including Publicly available basic profile information, MySpace photos, MySpaceTV videos, and friend networks.

Integration of the Data Availability project will roll to MySpace users and participating Websites in the coming weeks.
