Yet another case of Google becoming the new Microsoft? In other words, if MS did this, wouldn't there be all sorts of "M$ is the evil $oftware giant out to destroy the startup that challenges their hegemony" chatter?
Speaking of which...
The start of OpenSocial comes just a week after Google lost to Microsoft in a bid to invest in Facebook and sell advertising on the social network’s pages outside the United States. And it comes just before the expected introduction by Facebook of an advertising system next week, which some analysts believe could compete with Google’s. (from the NYT article mentioned by engine)
