LittleBigPlanet = LittleBigFacebook in social MMO? [Rumor]

Let's just get this out of the way: If Sony and Media Molecule's Sackboy went social, we might never leave Facebook. Now, gaming news site TheSixthAxis found a job posting for a lead community manager on the LittleBigPlanet series of PlayStation games that calls for "strong knowledge and passion for games, ideally to include social gaming and MMOs."

Of course, this is not to say that Media Molecule or any of the other studios that work on LittleBigPlanet games have a social game or massively multi-player online game (MMO) in the works, but it shouldn't be out of the realm of possibility. For one, the LittleBigPlanet games on the stable of Sony game systems are known for their deep online community components.

That said, it might be logical for the developers to take a crack at two of the fastest growing segments of gaming: social games and MMOs. Of course, the LittleBigPlanet teams could seek a community lead with this experience simply due to their games' strong focus on online play both cooperative and competitive. Keep in mind, no other job opening mentions social games or MMOs. Still, our hopes are high for LittleBigFacebook or, as TheSixthAxis puts it, LittleBigUniverse.
