Now, YouTube users can sync up their YouTube feed with MySpace, so that every video they upload automatically gets distributed through their MySpace account.
The four existing MySpace users are reported to be ecstatic about this slight time-saver. Sorry, that was an attempt at satire. Honestly, it’s hard to know what to make of MySpace. Sure, this is a cool feature. But, what is MySpace now? Is it for bands? Because iLike and iTunes’ Ping have been beating on that door. Is it trying to be Facebook? Good luck.
Perhaps MySpace is hoping to be exactly what this new feature signals. They’re ok being an afterthought. They know that there’s a decent amount of people that still use MySpace. And they’re grateful for the content that this new sync will create, making MySpace appear current and lively.
