Today we're introducing Sync with Facebook, www.myspace.com/guide/sync, which
allows MySpace users, musicians, and celebrities around the world to sync their
status updates with their Facebook profile or Page, while also offering them
the ability to share content such as game activity, music, videos, links and
photos with their friends on Facebook.
with Facebook allows users to keep their friends on Facebook up to date on
everything, including: sharing songs, latest photos, fun game apps, and more.
when a user adds a game on MySpace, it will now be broadcast to that users'
Facebook friends in their Facebook stream. Users who click on the stream
activity within Facebook are taken to the game's profile page on MySpace so
that logged in and non-logged in users can see the content. At launch we
are syncing game install activity, but are working to sync more gaming related
activities with the Facebook stream.
opportunities to experience and share this type of entertainment content are
endless. This is particularly exciting for artists who can now use this tool as
a complement to their MySpace Music presence and share their vast library of
content, including full album catalogs, to people who've liked their Facebook
Here are a few screenshots of how the sync
functionality will look:
And here's an example of what a MySpace game activity will look like on Facebook.
with Facebook is easy to set up:
- Click on the settings box in the
update module on your Home
- Check the box next to Facebook or
Twitter (or both!)
- Follow the steps prompted to sync
- Done! Your updates will now automatically sync.
Users continue to have the option to sync to
Twitter as well. Once you've synced your Facebook account, simply update your
status on MySpace as you normally would (from your Home page, Status and Mood page, or mobile phone). When you update your
status on MySpace, it will then be shared with friends on Facebook.
This new sync functionality is part of an ongoing effort to make
it simple for people to share their updates beyond MySpace and allow fans and
friends to interact with that content across the web.
always, let us know what you think.
