Kevin Marks From Google Explains Open Social

I am a visual person and I learn better when concepts are introduced to me visually. If you are visual person too and you want to learn details about Google's OpenSocial from Kevin Marks, an engineer at the search giant, than click on his blog and watch the video under the Social Club post.

"OpenSocial provides a common set of APIs for social applications across multiple websites. With standard JavaScript and HTML, developers can create apps that access a social network's friends and update feeds." In other words your profile information, friends information and activities will be shared among various social networking sites in the OpenSocial project like, Friendster, hi5, Hyves, imeem, LinkedIn, MySpace, Ning, Oracle, orkut, Plaxo,, Six Apart, Tianji, Viadeo, and XING.

If you don’t have 20 minutes for the video presentation you can check the post from TechCrunch or look at the introduction video on Google's OpenSocial site.
