We think the web is better when it's social. Currently, you have friends locked up in one or more social networks, social applications that work on only a few sites, and multiple usernames and passwords to remember. It can be better, and we are developing tools to make "any app, any site, any friends" a reality.
We are launching this blog for anyone interested or involved in helping to make the web more social. Whether you own a site and want to add social features to increase community engagement, or you're developing a great social application, this blog is for you.
We will write about social initiatives within Google, such as Google Friend Connect, as well as community efforts like OpenSocial. We plan to share some success stories, present tips and tricks, provide updates when there are new developments, and much more.
And we want to hear what you have to say. So join this site, leave a message on the wall, and add a song to the iLike playlist gadget. Tell us about what you've been doing to make the web more social, what you've seen others successfully do, or simply what you think about our posts. We look forward to hearing from you and keeping you updated on Google products that are helping the make the web more social.
