Netvibes, a widget and personal start page provider has announced the inclusion on Open Social in their widget-building platform. In short, this means that developers can create widgets that can easily be integrated across platforms and social networks so that users can interact with each other using these widgets, no matter where they are.
From their press release: "The true power of universal widgets lies in deploying applications across all
platforms that can leverage the user's social graph wherever it goes." said
Freddy Mini, CEO Netvibes. "By combining Netvibes UWA's cross-platform
compatibility with OpenSocial's many social networking partners, we're ushering
in a new era of universal, social widgets that enable true platform independence
and exponentially more powerful social applications."
