For more than a year, Google and MySpace have been working together to give the world's largest social network access to the Internet search leader's platform that allows outside developers to write programs for social Web sites. The addition of MySpace gives the Google platform greater strength against the fast-growing Facebook, which opened up its site to developers in May and has since seen its user base grow to more than 48 million people. News Corporation-owned MySpace has some 110 million users worldwide. LinkedIn and Friendster have already joined Google's OpenSocial platform, which was launched earlier this week and gives outside developers the tools to write programs for any of its social network partners.
