MySpace Invites Developers to the Social

MySpace is now “open” for business.
According to The Wall Street Journal, MySpace will formally launch the MySpace Developer Platform next Tuesday with a kickoff event and workshop at its new San Francisco office.
The company said the program should result in innovations in how friends connect and communicate.
MySpace already has informally allowed developers to create interactive applications known as “widgets.” The photo-sharing service Photobucket became so popular that MySpace’s parent company bought it for about $300 million.
By creating a formal developers program, MySpace plans to give programmers “deeper access” to the site and the ability to “build richer applications as part of it,” said Amit Kapur, 26, named Tuesday as MySpace’s chief operating officer.
