So.. Whats it all about then..

Well “social” networking the big buzz word of the last few year has finally reached google…

Google of course have sort of tried the social site with not much success and problems with drugs etc…Â If you don’t know what i’m on about have a search for “Orkut drugs south america”

Anyway .. Google has gone the route of intergrating other networks… Yep not just google but partners..

 The ultimate goal is for any social website to be able to implement the APIs and host 3rd party social applications. There are many websites implementing OpenSocial, including, Friendster, hi5, Hyves, imeem, LinkedIn, MySpace, Ning, Oracle, orkut, Plaxo,, Six Apart, Tianji, Viadeo, and XING.

Haven’t played with the api yet but once a few sample come out i’ll have a go..Â
