MySpace Now Pushes Activity Streams to Windows Live

MySpace and Microsoft just announced that Windows Live users can now start broadcasting their MySpace activity stream on Windows Live. MySpace users can now import status updates, blog entries, photo uploads, and music into Windows Live. MySpace and Microsoft built this MySpaceID implementation on the activitystrea.ms standard, which has also been adopted by Facebook and Opera.

Microsoft enabled the ability to import activity streams from third-party services when it gave Windows Live a major overhaul in November 2008. Since then, all profile pages on Windows Live can optionally show a Facebook-like stream of a user’s activities on other networks. With this MySpace integration, Microsoft Live now features support for over 50 third-party services.

If you are using MySpace, here is a short walk-through for how to enable this feature in Windows Live.

Overall, this implementation isn’t very exciting, but while both MySpace and Windows Live aren’t generally considered to be the most cutting-edge services by the digerati anymore (and MySpace is clearly on a downwards trend), there can be no doubt that they both command a large share of their respective markets. This cooperation between Microsoft and MySpace should also give the activitystrea.ms standard a good boost.
