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.
