MySpace Launches New Streaming API

Los Angeles-based social networking site MySpace, in a bid to connect with the "real-time" web, said early this morning at the LeWeb conference that it has launched a new, real-time API. According to MySpace COO Mike Jones, the firm is enhancing its MySpace Developer Platform to allow partners to access the firm's real-time data, including status updates, music, video, and photos. As part of the launch of the new API, the firm said Google, GroovyCorp, and OneRiot have already started using the API. The new API also includes features as photo uploading, an open search API for finding profile information, and a status and mood commenting API.
