Google’s iGoogle is pretty much my home page for the Web. I check Gmail, Facebook, weather, movie times and blog updates and use other gadgets from there every day.
Accordingly, I was interested to see Google yesterday, Aug. 6, launch 12 social gadgets that let users share information, play games and collaborate with friends. This is the next step in Google’s progressive move to socialize its Web services using theOpenSocial APIs it launched nearly two years ago.
Facebook has been allowing its users to connect via applications since it launched its developer platform more than two years ago. Programmers have built thousands of apps on Facebook since then, allowing users to throw virtual sheep and host zombie wars.
Third-party programmers have been announcing OpenSocial-based Friend Connect apps here and there, but Google has been woefully behind in leveraging the APIs itself. These social gadgets show the company is ready to open things up a bit more in this vein.
