MySpace has launched MySpace Toolbar, an internally developed product which will give users activity notifications during their web browsing experience. The toolbar is available to all users in India, United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and Ireland.
MySpace users can install the Toolbar by going to www.myspace.com/toolbar, and start receiving real time alerts and notifications including new friend requests, messages, comments, mood updates, friend updates and MySpace search powered by Google.
The MySpace Toolbar will run inside the browser at launch on a PC running Internet Explorer 6.0 or higher or Firefox 2.0 or higher. There will be a version for Mac users in the near future.
"We believe strongly in our core technical foundation at MySpace and we're building internal products based on the same technology that we're developing in concert with the community. The use of OAuth here is an innovative extension of our MySpace Open Platform technology and we're thrilled to see this come to life with the launch of the MySpace Toolbar," said Amit Kapur, COO, MySpace.
