    Facebook will join OpenSocial, just you wait and see. They'd be insane not to.

    iGoogle? Are you kidding me?!
    Welcome to your iLife... This will be your iRoom featuring your iWiredPhone to make phone calles, your iComputerMonitor, and your iPC or iMAC, with your iStereoSpeakerSet and with your iCam. On this room you have the iKitchen featuring iCabinets, iPlates, iDrinkingGlasses, iBlender, and iFridge. Also this iHouse comes complete with your very own iToaster and iAirConditioner, oh and iHeater.

    0 imagination.... It's like those (some) little Arabic business where they lack of imaginations on their business name... Dentarist XP SP2, Vista Computers, Inc....arr.... No wait sorry, at least those are fun to read, and remember...

    This isn't a new social network, OpenSocial is a set of APIs that application developers can use to create applications that work on any social networks (called “hosts”) that choose to participate.

    Please tell me this isn't the first you've heard of iGoogle? The personalised home page has been called that since April! :confused:

    Microsoft wouldn't have a say in the matter. Facebook is an independent company.

    As a shareholder thay have a voice, Microsoft just recently paid a lot of money to buy a small percentage of Facebook.

    Myspace joining is no big surprise, being that Myspace is a NewsCorp company, and NewsCorp (aka BSkyB) and Google already have a working relationship.

    As if MySpace isn't already the most hideous site on the internet, the retard user base are now going to be able to make the web's most ugly pages even worse with applications. Hoo-****ing-ray!

    I'll admit it, I'm a FaceBook user because I think it's a good way to keep in touch, and share things, with all my mates. Unfortunately it took a massive turn for the worse when they enabled the applications; and I'm yet to find one that's actually useful. The closest I've found is the CarPool application but that's got no user base in the UK.
