Google’s social network contribution – a set of API standards

Dare talks about Google’s proposed API standard for Social Networking. 

     OpenSocial: Google Proposes Widget & RESTful API Standards for Social Networking Sites

Not just a step towards standardization but also another step towards the commoditization of social networking apps.

There was also an article on this in this morning’s Sydney Morning Herald.

  1. Darren,
    The articles are interesting developments in our social networking discussion last week.
    Do you think that we can expect OpenSocial, thus Google, to develop APIs capable of filtering or accomplishing triage based on categorical information such as, friend or professional?
    I gather that Microsoft has sided with FaceBoook and that Google has sided with OpenSocial.
    It is still ironic that Microsoft and Google are considered competitors while both corporations specialize in radically different domains of the IT industry.
    Perhaps, the real battle is about who will develop the first true Internet OS.
    The Internet OS is another discussion topic out of the scope of social networking for the moment.
    Thanks for the Information,
