Facebook and MySpace lock horns for social networking future

Internet giants Facebook and MySpace went head to head again, as they outlined audacious plans for the future at the Web 2.0 Summit, an annual gathering of some of the world's top technologists and investors. In his talk Zuckerberg hinted that bringing Facebook to mobile phones could be a crucial next step for the company - and he is not alone.
