Google announced their Open Social platform yesterday, and this seems to be the next great “thing” out there in the social networking world. For all those who were getting comfortable in the Facebook world, it will once again start to slip away in favor or open API and programming architecture. The days of hiding behind a member’s only wall where nothing can be exported seem to be drawing to a close (remember AOL?).
Google never does anything without a business plan to make a bucket of money, so I wonder what this will do (expect draw people to their sites again rather to to Facebook)?
