Leading Social Networking sites MySpace and Facebook have declared mashup parternship between them.
This mashup deal allows MySpace users to log into Facebook via their Myspace account.
Facebook users will now be able to push all their Facebook status updates to MySpace. So your Facebook stream will appear on your MySpace profile.
MySpace will allow its users to import their Facebook profile details.
MySpace will soon be implementing the Facebook "Like" button across the site so users can share their entertainment interests with friends on Facebook.
Facebook VP of partnerships and platform marketing Dan Rose says, “Sharing entertainment and music interests is part of many of our friendships, online and off. Myspace is giving people an easy way to bring their favorite bands, celebrities and movies from Facebook to create a personalised experience on Myspace from the start.”

Myspace currently has around 130 Million users globally while Facebook has more than 500 Million users.
