Today we are celebrating the one-year anniversary of OpenSocial at the MySpace San Francisco offices. As part of that celebration, I'm pleased to announce that MySpace Platform now supports the 0.8 OpenSocial spec! This marks an important milestone for MDP, our developer community, and for OpenSocial as we continue to build on the enormous success of the past year. 0.8 support sets the stage for a host of new capabilities that we'll be enabling for apps on MySpace, including the ability to post Activities to Friend Updates, our new permissions model with OpenCanvas, and app-to-user notifications. You can get more details on our 0.8 release here.
The past year has seen many notable achievements, including the launch of OpenSocial on MySpace and many other containers, the growth of a vibrant worldwide developer community, and the engagement of millions of users with apps running on multiple platforms. As we look ahead to the coming year, we can already see exciting changes on the horizon, including new technologies like templating and OSML, and deeper, richer integrations with containers. Apps are thriving on MySpace and have become a key part of the user experience. We are committed to giving developers even more ways to bring creativity and value to our members.
Thank you for the all the hard work!
