Yahoo And Google Get Social Together


facebook_down_small.jpgADOTAS – Yahoo put out a statement today that says it supports Google in the development of applications for social networks and will help create a joint foundation to keep it going.

Google launched OpenSocial in November to encourage developers who are creating widgets for Facebook to make them, following a set of standards, for a network of social sites.

MySpace, Google and Yahoo said they’d create the OpenSocial Foundation to “maintain a neutral, community-governed forum for developing application,” reports Reuters. A non-profit will be developed with assets assigned to the new organization by July 1st, the report concluded.
