Deals signed with Photobucket, Twitter, eBay and Yahoo

MySpace has launched a data-sharing project in which the social networking site will open up its code to partner sites Photobucket, Twitter, eBay and Yahoo.

The MySpace Data Availability Initiative will involve the creation of a new section of the site which will manage the data sharing.

Users will access the system and share data on an ‘opt-in’ basis, meaning that only information which the user has chosen to share will be viewable by others.

The information will then be available for use on other sites, allowing users to display MySpace profile information along with photos and video files on other participating sites.
