In a battle to expand its business, MySpace rolled out MySpaceID in a bid to become more open source. Together it also announced its new partners namely; Vodafone and Netvibes. I guess MySpace takes the cake away from Facebook Connect as it uses open standards all across, with OAuth, OpenID and Open Social to enable users access other services using their MySpace login. I think Facebook should more readily adopt the strategy as their is no point in alienating itself from the lot, especially that MySpace accepts Google FriendConnect too.
