MySpace viral channels: notifications coming April 30, invitations coming late May

myspace viral channelsWhile developers wait on the MySpace Platform to launch many long-awaited viral channels, Max Newbould, lead developer and product owner of the MySpace Developer Platform, told developers in an IRC channel yesterday that:

  • MySpace Platform notifications are launching “April 30th, unless something goes terribly wrong.”
  • MySpace Platform invitations are a “good month away” (there is a separate team working on it?)

Newbould has been traveling through Asia and Australia in recent weeks drumming up developer support for the MySpace Developer Platform.

Earlier this week, MySpace announced new viral channels in the Post To API, some of which are not available on any other platform.
