OpenSocial at Stanford
Integration and Mashups for Social Media and Beyond

TODAY -- 2:00-3:30 p.m.

LOCATION: Turing Auditorium (Polya Hall, Room 111)

PRESENTERS: Bruce Vincent and Scotty Logan, IT Services

At this Tech Briefing, learn the various ways OpenSocial has been used  
both inside and outside social networking.

As a published set of programming interface specifications, OpenSocial  
targets integration of social networking applications and services.

In the past 5 years it has certainly become widely adopted as a  
framework in that segment with social networking services such as  
iGoogle, MySpace, Yahoo!, Ning, LinkedIn, orkut and many others. The  
flexibility OpenSocial as an integration framework has also led to a  
number of other uses of this technology like web application mashups  
well beyond social networking.
