Yesterday, Google announced its OpenSocial program to create a standardized APIs for social network platform developers. While their list of participating networks was lengthy, notably absent were the social networking giants—MySpace and Facebook.
Until today. MySpace and Google announced that the largest social network in the world will be joining the developing initiative by the largest search engine in the world. Google has said that over the past year, they’ve been secretly working on with MySpace to include them in the OpenSocial.
MySpace will not make an effort to create its own markup language (as Facebook has already done). Flixster has already created a MySpace application using the OpenSocial API standards (screenshots at TechCrunch).
