Myspace should support an API - for locating my
email contacts that are already signed up for Myspace.
Today, if I want to locate my email contacts on
Myspace - I have to give away my Yahoo, Google, Hotmail, AIM and AOL passwords.
Or - look up my email contacts one by one using the web interface - which is
not really feasable.
This means that I have to trust Myspace with probably the most
sensitive information I have. This is like having to give my
credit card secret code to when purchasing something in a shop.
An API call could solve this problem. It will allow
me to send a list of my contacts emails to Myspace (preferably over SSL), and
receive their MySpace user names in response.
If Myspace is serious about DataPortability, as I
see it - this is a Must functionality. What do you say?
