    That’s a great idea and fun way of getting more functionality out of a system which is becoming less useful to people. The emerging popularity of Facebook over MySpace means that MySpace needs a few more USP’s to keep users interested.

    I think a focus towards a more interactive and ‘fun’ website is what MySpace needs to show it offers something different to Facebook – and something like this certainly will help.
