Remember Friendster? The social networking site that predates Facebook and MySpace...and has 50 million users? Just like its wunderkind competitors, the site is launching its own developer platform. That's right -- yet another platform to keep track of. According to our tally sheet, social networking's granddaddy is joining the ranks of LinkedIn, Bebo, hi5, MySpace and Facebook with its platform aspirations.

Only a few developers? :) it is stressful with Facebook, because they are changing things a couple of times a week with their APIs. More often than not, these changes cause your apps to break. To the end user, your broken apps look like problems with YOUR service. When there are 3-5-7 major platforms to manage, this is going to be a real headache.
