Your MySpace Web Browser Is Coming


, the Mozilla-based social web browser
has made the announcement that everyone has been waiting for: they will now
integrate with MySpace. Building on the

MySpace Developer Platform

Flock will allow users to surf the web with their MySpace friends in their
sidebar. At Tuesday’s MySpace Developer Platform kick-off, Flock demonstrated this
integration by giving event attendees a sneak peak at the upcoming Flock
features. Although details of the new functionality are limited at this point,
we do know that the MySpace People integration, as it’s being called, is
expected to function in a manner very similar to the Facebook integration that
is already in use in Flock. This integration will expose all of the
relevant actions made available by MySpace and will build them into the People Sidebar of the
Flock browser.

In the screenshot I received (above), you can see that you will be able to update your MySpace status (aka “headline”) from the browser. By comparing the icons at the top of the sidebar to those in MySpace’s new profile theme (below), they appear to allow for MySpace email, groups, blogging, friending, and events.

Also, like with Flock’s Facebook functionality, the MySpace integration will
allow you to easily upload new media, meaning video and pictures, to your
profile as well as viewing media belonging to your friends.

Although we don’t know for sure what functions will be included on the
“Actions” button that appears by each friend’s profile card, an educated guess
would include things like commenting, emailing, visiting their profile page, and
maybe even un-friending. 

Unfortunately, MySpace integration will not be part of the next
(version 1.1) and no one would share timing information at this
point as to when these features will arrive.

However, when Flock finally has the number one social network on board, they
may actually get noticed outside of the “hip-web-geek” crowd.
