    Social network sites are moving to make it much easier for software developers to write add-ons for the hugely popular web destinations.

    Bebo, Facebook, Meebo and Friendster have unveiled plans to help them become more than places to keep in touch.

    The add-ons will allow users to add extras, such as video and music clips, to the personal profiles they maintain.

    The alliances behind the technologies also reveal the fierce competition between social sites for users.
