So, now if I develop applications for one social networking platform, does that mean I have to develop them again for another platform?
Not such a bad deal if you are the custom programmer I guess, but it certainly adds complexity for those wishing to cater to multiple social networking platforms, each using a different API.

Coopster, there are two platforms - the Facebook Platform which for now works on Facebook and Bebo, and the OpenSocial platform which is MySpace, Ning, Plaxo, etc.
The best thing about MySpace's implementation are that they're keeping the playing field level - no launch partners. Every developer has as good a chance as every other, as everybody will go live the same day.

It'll be a race to see who can make the first vampire/zombie app

hehe, sorry about that, lorenzinho2. I made my comment tongue-in-cheek. I should have thrown a ;) in there!
I was hoping to bring up a little discussion in regards to my comment. First, we may as well concede to the thought that there are two major social networks for which we might be developing applications at this point, MySpace and Facebook. My tongue-in-cheek response was not so much from the standpoint of a developer rather as a client that wants an application put forth because of interest in the network.
Do you feel the two networks cater to different social markets?
Or do you feel that if you develop an application for one network/platform you may indeed end up retrofitting the application for the other network/platform as well?

Chances are that most apps will be developed for both platforms unless they are somehow targeted at a single social netork for technical or demographic reasons.
