Submission + - Open Social - Details of Google's Facebook Killer (pmarca.com)

PRC Banker writes: "This week a new social API is being launched: Open Social. "Open Social is an open web API that can be supported by two kinds of developers: * Containers — social networking systems like Ning, Orkut, LinkedIn, Hi5, and Friendster; * Apps — applications that want to be embedded within containers — for example, the kinds of applications built by iLike, Flixster, Rockyou, and Slide." I think this is pretty big news. No more Facebook-specific FBML and FQL, "app developers can build to standard HTML and Javascript, and their apps can then run in any Open Social container." Key quote: "Open Social... will prevent Facebook from having any kind of long-term proprietary developer lock-in.""
