MySpace is rolling out a couple of announcements this morning a day ahead of Facebook’s F8 developer conference.
The first is confirmation of our story that they are supporting OpenID, although they aren’t releasing any details (It’s our belief that they will first issue OpenID IDs, and possibly become a relying party later).
MySpace is also making a core policy change to Data Availability. Previously third party services were not allowed to store any MySpace user profile information at all – they simply requested it from MySpace, used it to create a web page and then dumped it. Now MySpace is allowing 24-hour caches of profile information, and permanent caches of certain “core elements” of a user profile.
