Open Web One Giant Step Closer: MySpace Offers Data Availability With eBay, Photobucket, Twitter, Yahoo

In an auspicious move that has clearly leapfrogged MySpace ahead of its competition as the open web thought leader, the world’s largest social network and, to date, biggest implementation of Open Social, has launched a Data Availability initiative.

Launch partners include eBay, Photobucket, Twitter and Yahoo and as Ben Metcalfe points out, Data Availability is open to everyone.

Think of your MySpace profile augmenting your Twitter account. My take is that this is less about creating MySpace as a destination and more about personal data objects that can enrichen the web experience.

Here’s a bunch of good stuff to read:

* Ben’s take

* MySpace Press Release

* TechCrunch post
