MySpace OpenSocial Disaster

It's been less than 24 hours since MySpace OpenSocial platform opened their doors. While Facebook and Bebo value their developers, provide support and rely on their feedback, MySpace is obviously different.

So what do we have so far?

- Angry developers complaining about the fact that MySpace "suspended" their applications without explanation. Some received vague reasons for their apps being denied, like:

"Application logo violates copy rights issue. This logo is belong to google talk."
"Ads in the application navigate the site away from MySpace"
"Application is not working fine."

Judging by not-so-perfect English it looks like the review process was outsourced overseas?

According to the developer community forum there is no way to edit/test or re-submit suspended applications right away.

Great start.
