Yahoo! has joined forces with Google, MySpace, Bebo and others in the OpenSocial initiative, writes The Guardian. The initiative was formed last November in order to make it easier for developers to create applications which will automatically work across numerous websites. The firms have now announced the creation of the OpenSocial Foundation – an independent non-profit organisation which will provide guidelines and set specifications for the future development of compatible applications. The Foundation will also help ensure that all members of the initiative will share influence over its future role and direction.
As yet neither Facebook nor Microsoft have joined the initiative.
