Building Applications for the MySpace Audience
MySpace applications add social context to the hundreds of millions MySpace profiles and their unique personalities. MySpace applications receive an dedicated module on a MySpace member profile or homepage and direct access to logged-in authors, members, or anonymous audience members. MySpace applications add social smarts to your widgets and help publishers create a custom content experience.
In this session you will learn the unique widget opportunities available on the MySpace OpenSocial container. You will learn major features of the MySpace application platform, understand the expectations of the MySpace audience, and create viral social experiences.
