MySpace Spaces Out
MySpace splinters as teens head for niche sites. New services that control profiles across multiple social networking sites begin to take off.
There are two approaches in play here. Klostu creates a profile and allows you to use that on different message board sites. ProfileLinker aggregates your profiles from different social network sites. Same but different. Identity online is going to be a major part of the web going forward and has the potential to challenge all the sites that rely on lock in approaches to retain users. Perhaps identity platforms, like those above, will be the real winners.
