Yahoo Supports Google’s OpenSocial

We’ve been watching the movement to make social networking more open for a while now. The Washington Post reports a major step in that direction Tuesday. Google has joined forces with Yahoo as well as MySpace to create the OpenSocial Foundation. The Foundation will support the technology developed by Google that allows developers to create applications that work across many social networking platforms such as MySpace, LinkedIn, Orkut, etc. This is an exciting development for users who have often found themselves having to create multiple profiles via various networking sites in order to take advantage of specific applications or to link up with various friends and associates.
