We have been social network crazy for some time now. Since the inception of the moniker Web 2.0 droves of social networks have sprung up. As I have noted before, the wealth of social networks has become overwhelming for many, so much so that people are beginning to delete accounts from various social networks.
What if there was one standard for all social networks?
While many of are trying to forward standards that will achieve this end, Google made an announcement a few weeks ago about a social API that will assist in achieving true data portability.
After you watch the video below, I would love to hear your thoughts on Google’s move to create an Open Social standard, and whether or not you think this is just a move by Google to be able to place ads across social spaces.
