MySpace Platform Now Live

After months of anticipation, the MySpace Platform launched today, bringing applications to MySpace users for the first time.

MySpace Developer PlatformIn an intentional “soft launch” of the MySpace Platform using the OpenSocial 0.6 standard, the top 10 applications reached about 12,000 total installations in their first day. About 200 applications have already been approved and appear in the MySpace Application Directory.

In addition to canvas page and profile box real estate, MySpace apps also get real estate on the home page: both an app list under the welcome module and app boxes further down the left rail. However, notification and request channels will not be live for at least a couple of weeks.

A big congratulations is in order for the entire MySpace Developer Team!
