Social Software dominates the tech news

This week there has been a slew of news about social networks and big companies
ramping up their social software features. Here’s a quick summary of the latest news and
some thoughts below.

What do all of these things have in common? It’s all about expanding networks to
enable more social functionality – and in cases like Facebook, actually opening up the
platform to external developers.

A lot of people think the social aspect of this era of
the Web is its defining characteristic. And judging by all the news above, it’s hard to
argue against that! It’s fantastic too that Apple is getting into the spirit of things, while Microsoft and Yahoo continue to set the pace for the big companies. Social networking
and Google are uneasy bedfellows, but hopefully even they will get into the act soon.
