That’s what just happened.
Google and MySpace just dropped a major bomb on Facebook: they are joining forces to build a new social networking application platform that overnight will be considered the standard.
Chris, CEO of MySpace, about why open approach.
Joe from Flixter denotes why this is SO HUGE: his app will run anywhere that the OpenSocial platform is running. Plaxo. Ning. NewsGator. MySpace. No rewriting of apps.
One thing. Those apps now will run everywhere BUT Facebook.
