Yahoo! to join Google’s ‘Open Social’
My Space get into it as well!
Yahoo and MySpace have confirmed that they are joining the Open Social platform to form the nonprofit OpenSocial Foundation along with Google.
The Open Social platform allows developers to create a single application that works on multiple sites, which makes sense!
It’s encouraging that we are seeing more and more collaberation between the search engines and social sites. The creation of the sitemaps.org protocol last year was the first real joined up effort by all three major search engines and it will be interesting in these ‘take over’ times whether Microsoft will get on board as well.
