Google’s OpenSocial

Posted on November 2, 2007. Filed under: Social networking, Technology |

Old news now of course 🙂 but surely the most devastating/interesting/wonderful technology announcement this year. Scoble has a round up of all the best bits on the new Google OpenSocial API that every social networking site on the planet is signing up to.

Open Social is available here.

Plaxo, Ning, MySpace, Beebo, Six Apart, Orkut, Salesforce, LinkedIn, Friendster, Oracle, Engage, the list goes on (via TechCrunch).

Incredible. Perhaps even scary.

Marc Andreesson comments (with screen shots), as does Dave Winer (here and here) and Dan Farber.

Craig, thanks for the post. How fascinating, it’s a real “mind melt” just trying to process what this could mean for Social Networking and the plethora of sites sharing this standard. I noticed some press about Google and MySpace teaming up this week (Ron even mentioned it briefly today) Thanks for the link to Marc Andreesen’s blog which I was not aware of, I particularly enjoyed Marc’s 3 minute “screencast” showing OpenSocial in action.
