    The world's most popular social networking site MySpace is to allow users to make their information available to other websites.

    Its "data availability" project will let members share public profile information with Yahoo, Twitter, eBay and Photobucket.

    In the past sites like MySpace have locked users into their own site and jealously guarded member's content.

    "The walls around the garden are coming down," says MySpace boss Chris DeWolfe.

    The deal means that anyone with a MySpace profile can now share content with any web site. That includes things like photos, video, public profile information, friends' lists and text.

    MySpace claims their initiative "throws open the doors to traditionally closed networks by putting users in the driver's seat of their data and web identity".
