'Don't Be Evil' -- It's a Statement, Not a Lifestyle!

With the reported launch of OpenSocial, which enables developers to build apps for a multiplicity of social networks and not just one -- including a Google social network that spreads its net over its other properties -- Google has enlisted MySpace as a partner.

And that's just the headliner. Others include Engage.com, Friendster, hi5, Hyves, imeem, LinkedIn, Ning, Oracle, orkut, Plaxo, Salesforce.com, Six Apart, Tianji, Viadeo, and XING as founding partners in OpenSocial.

According to Fortune, Facebook was pointedly not invited to the knitting circle. "Despite reports, Facebook has still not been briefed on OpenSocial," said (obviously butthurt) spokesperson Brandee Barker.

There may be just cause. John Battelle says Facebook's coming out with an AdWords killer next week.

The plot thickens.

If you don't know your place, the Queen Bee will find you. And kill you. < / maniacal laughter >
