Google Friend Connect Is trying to catch up with Facebook Connect, and just now released its first set of APIs, which will let developers integrate Google Friend Connect more deeply into their sites and applications. Google Friend Connect offers a single sign-on service as well as several data portability features.
Friend Connect API’s enable developers to
- Integrate social flows and data directly within a page’s markup, via the OpenSocial standard specification
- integrate existing login systems, registered users, and existing data with new social data and activities.
- Create social gadgets & services that are embeddable within millions of Friend Connect enabled sites.
