Charlene Li, Google OpenSocial will (hopefully) make social apps more relevant

Used to be that Facebook was a place where you poked people and threw sheep or chickens at them. Since Google opened it up, there are new applications being launched every day. Widgets, move over. It won’t be long till those social apps jump out of Facebook and land on a web site near you. Right now Facebook is the wild wild west. If you haven’t visited lately and looked around at the business groups, you’re missing out on the next revolution.
