Flash Platform Services: The Social service

Increasingly the Web is social. It is becoming important to make applications social. To make it easier to integrate your application with Facebook, MySpace and other social networks, we made the Social service available through Adobe Labs.

The Social service (currently in beta) enables you to write applications that integrate leading social networks such as Facebook and MySpace into your apps. The service, implemented through an easy to use API, provides an abstraction layer that connects with different networks. This removes the complexity and repetitive work of having to implement multiple APIs in order to integrate social features from multiple social networks into your application. The service also insulates developers against underlying social network changes, as the underlying APIs at the supported social networks change, the service adapts to those changes so you don’t have to rush updated versions of your app to market.
