    Google,Yahoo and Myspace are working together on Open Social, an open online platform for social networking.

    [FONT=&quot]The Open Social initiative was created by Google back in November, with the goal of making an easily accessible set of application programming interfaces (APIs) for social networking, thereby having a more even playing field for everyone. Right away Google signed with Myspace, and later on with Yahoo, which gives the team a bigger boost.

    Google product manager Dan Peterson wrote in the company's official blog that Yahoo signing on will bring additional resources for developers, and will encourage others to come on board.

    With Yahoo now part of the massive group, the project has decided to become a complete non-profit organization, which is set to be fully authorized by July 1.

    In addition, Google has launched opensocial.org as a main "hub" for all information about the project.
