Facebook users vainly try to remember the last time they signed into MySpace.

In one of the more confusing announcements of the day, Facebook and MySpace made a joint announcement today that the two "competing" sites will now be sharing data. This "Mashup" will allow people to import their likes and interests from their Facebook accounts to their MySpace accounts with "a simple one-click set-up."

Why Facebook would exactly do this is kind of a mystery; you could call MySpace a direct competitor to Facebook if MySpace's place in the social networking limelight hadn't fizzled out a long time ago. The ability to "Like" someone on Facebook and get hooked up with their MySpace account info doesn't really appeal since most likely their last sign in date will have been in 2008 or so. Most people, including me, are figuring this is MySpace's last ditch effort at a return to relevance; hopefully this is an option that can be completely bypassed.
