Facebook Panics as MySpace Opens Up


Two days ago, I said MySpace’s new data portability initiative will force competitors to open up. Looks like it’ll happen sooner than I expected. Facebook announces its own data portability initiative, Facebook Connect.

Thing is, Facebook Connect is still weeks away, and they’ve announced only one partner. Facebook is infamous for jealously locking in user data, even at the very public expense of A-list customers, so this announcement sounds less like a working strategic plan and more like a panicked press release. This is just Facebook trying to save face.
