The MySpace Developer Platform launches today. It's certainly big news when the world's largest social network launches their platform and we've updated our MySpace API Profile with the latest details.
After four months, Facebook is set to open its timeline actions to developers this week, according to AllThingsD. The feature is an addition to the Facebook Graph API that allows developers to assign verbs for actions users perform within applications. For example, how users now "like" things, they'll also be able to "read" articles, "play" games and "listen" to music. I would expect many, many actions to be submitted to Facebook for approval, especially related to game-specific acts. It's too early to tell how closely the social network will watch its pending list of actions, though there's a clear approval process.
