On November 1, 2007, Myspace and Bebo joined the Google-led Open Social alliance, which already included Friendster, Hi5, Linked In, Plaxo, Ning and Six Apart.
Open Social was to promote a common set of standards for software developers to write programs for social networks. Google had been unsuccessful in building its own social networking site Orkut in the U. market and was using the alliance to present a counterweight to Facebook.
By late 2007 and into 2008, Myspace was considered the leading social networking site, and consistently beat out main competitor Facebook in traffic.
