CityIN Joins OpenSocial

1 min read

We have reported that Tianji.com was the only Chinese SNS in OpenSocial’s partners list. But it has been a long time we have not seen any implementation of OpenSocial on Tianji.com. Like many others, announcing the support of OpenSocial seems just a PR strategy. However, CityIN, this very young startup is going to release its OpenSocial based open application platform.

English version of the announcement page for global app developers is here.  We have also been told that CityIN would provide Chinese version of OpenSocial document to the Chinese developers.

We have heard lots of buzz about open platform, API etc from the fast growing China web. Xiaonei.com, the No.1 Facebook-like SNS is planning to release its API; Taobao.com, the No.1 auction will open its API soon; Netvibes’ UWA has been and will be adopted as the standard of widget development by many local players including some giant portals.  All sound very exciting!
