OpenSocial on Facebook (Sort-of)

A friend of Radar alerts us to a new Facebook application that appears to make Facebook an OpenSocial container. One of the developers is from Google. It’s unclear what’s happening here — Could this be the beginning of a guerilla attempt to lure Facebook into OpenSocial? — but it’s a potentially fascinating early move. You can find out more about the Open Socket Project here.

On a related note, we’re finishing an update of our Facebook Applications Platform report and we’ll have some news about that in this space next week.
