Google Launches Social Graph API

Once again, Google makes Microsoft look stupid for buying Facebook stock at Zuckerberg’s ridiculous price. They just launched a social graph API that allows developers to harvest relationship data not just within social networks, but across the open Web through XFN and FOAF.

OpenSocial for widgets, and now Social Graph for relationships: Google is building a suite of APIs to blow social networking out of information silos and wide open across the Web. As demonstrated by Facebook banning Scoble for harvesting his own social graph, that openness is Zuckerberg’s worst nightmare.
