Facebook and MySpace are set to make an unprecedented join announcement today.

“Please join us for an invitation-only announcement by Mike Jones, CEO of Myspace(), and Dan Rose, VP of Partnerships and Platform Marketing, Facebook(),” states the invite. The announcement is set to take place today, November 18, at 12:00 PM PT via webcast.

Our best clue as to what the two companies will announce is that Facebook’s VP for Platform Marketing will be making the joint announcement on behalf of Facebook. If we had to guess, we’d say the announcement will be related to MySpace using the Facebook Platform or Facebook Connect.

MySpace’s recent overhaul of their entire site and UI places the company directly in the entertainment vertical and out of direct competition with Facebook. Now that the company is focusing on content, Facebook Connect or platform integration make sense as a way to increase distribution.

Can't wait to see how this turns out!
