Submission + - Google: Too late for OpenSocial? (

DeeQ writes: Is the search king already too late to the party?

When Google unveiled its OpenSocial developer initiative at the end of October, observers hailed it as the future of the social Web. It's been over six weeks, and OpenSocial — which uses open-source code to allow any participating social media site to implement a common set of application program interfaces (APIs) and create "universal" applications — isn't finished, though developers believe it will be ready early in 2008. In the meantime, a number of partners have launched independent developer platform strategies, and Facebook has announced that other social networks will be able to use its own applications, rivaling what Google can offer.
