OpenSocial adds Yahoo! and goes non-profit

Yahoo! will join the OpenSocial application platform championed by Google. The search giant is also partnering with Google and MySpace to create a non-profit support body, the OpenSocial Foundation.

OpenSocial is a set of specifications that lets developers create and run applications across any participating social network

Its role, they say, will be to support the OpenSocial project by creating and managing forums to discuss applications and development techniques. It will run as a non-profit body, with assets to be declared and assigned by Jul 1.
