OpenSocial’s Failed Promise: Only 0.7% of Apps Have Crossed Networks (Updated)

first_imgA Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… marshall kirkpatrick Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification OpenSocial was intended to help everyone else keep up with the huge success of the Facebook platform. If there’s one clear market leader, everyone else has a common interest in creating a standard that will help scale the market opportunity on their platforms vs. what Facebook can offer. It hasn’t worked out that way, though. Outside observers hoped that OpenSocial would allow for user data to be transmitted from one site to another. People thought this was the coming of Data Portability, though OpenSocial advocates quickly said that wasn’t the intent. It was just for apps to port, not user data. There is a lot of innovation going on in OpenSocial – it’s a shame the platform isn’t better appreciated.Below: I discuss OpenSocial in March of last year on G4TV, forced to break the host’s heart about data portability!Video Games – E3 2009 – Attack of the ShowWhy hasn’t cross-network development happened though? There are a few theories. The most common is that though there is a common bed of code across all the different social network containers, each of them is also tweaked just enough that it’s not that easy to “write once.” When that became apparent, OpenSocial advocates started saying that the standard still made it a lot easier to develop for multiple networks. So if not “write once, deploy everywhere” then perhaps it was “write once and then take a lot less time to write for elsewhere than you’d have to otherwise.”Clearly developers haven’t taken advantage of that opportunity.Google’s Kevin Marks, one of the leading public faces for OpenSocial, told us today that there are serious cultural differences between the networks and that this could help explain why there hasn’t been more cross pollination. One look through the directory makes it clear though that while the countless “hot bikini girl” apps may not translate from MySpace to LinkedIn well, all the other networks have their own isolated versions of many of the same insipid apps.The most viable explanation could be that Facebook is in fact the only game in town for the most sophisticated developers. That’s a real shame, because it’s never good for innovation for there to be only one game in town. Tags:#social networks#web#Yahoo Related Posts When the Google-led OpenSocial campaign launched in October 2007 it aimed to give developers a common environment that application publishers could publish widgets to with one set of code, deployable across Google sites, MySpace, Hi5 and numerous other social networks.A directory of OpenSocial Apps launched today and the reality is even further from that goal than we expected. Out of 12,456 apps listed, only 83 are running on two or more “containers.” That’s 0.7% or one out of every 1500. Update: See this reply below from Google’s Kevin Marks. Marks says that cross-network presence was counted manually and is actually larger than it appears in the directory.last_img read more

It is finding the right situations for now, and there needs to be a competitive element for now quite obviously because we’ve got to get wins, but also the next layer of player and the next development of player.”There’s a lot of boxes need ticking to make sure they are the right players for this club and that makes it difficult but that’s the challenge we’ve been doing for the last six or so years.” last_img read more

Mens Basketball Chris Holtmann wills Ohio State to unexpected win in Round

Ohio State head coach Chris Holtmann puts his hands out in the first half of the game against Indiana on Feb. 10. Ohio State won 55-52. Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorThere was a lot to be excited about with where Ohio State men’s basketball was headed after the 2017-18 season.Following a 25-9 record, including a 15-3 record in the Big Ten, the Buckeyes won in the Round of 64 against South Dakota State, then put up a fight in a second-half comeback before falling to Gonzaga.The future looked bright for this program after exceeding expectations in head coach Chris Holtmann’s first year.The future, as in the 2019-20 team that will be led by a trio of four-star prospects: guard DJ Carton, forward EJ Liddell and forward Alonzo Gaffney.But not the 2018-19 season. Not with a team lacking Keita Bates-Diop, Jae-Sean Tate and Kam Williams, who combined for 55.3 percent of the team’s points and 45.9 percent of the rebounds in 2017-18.Yet somehow, someway, Holtmann brought this Ohio State team to the NCAA Tournament. Beyond that, the Buckeyes won a game, stunning six-seeded Iowa State before falling to Houston in the Round of 32.But it didn’t go as smoothly as it did a season ago.After hearing his team’s name called on Selection Sunday, Holtmann said he thought if Ohio State played well, that it would be “very close” on if it would make the tournament.To start the season, Holtmann’s team did play well, with the Buckeyes winning 12 of their first 13 games behind dominant play from sophomore forward Kaleb Wesson.That success didn’t last into conference play. Ohio State dropped its next five games, and 12 of its last 18 games to end the regular season, playing much more like the team that many counted out before the season began.A year removed from Bates-Diop, Tate and Williams had Ohio State drop from No. 4 in points per game and No. 1 in points allowed per game during conference games to No. 13 and No. 7, respectively.And yet the Buckeyes were a Big Ten tournament win away from going dancing for back-to-back years.That win would be no easy task: Indiana had won four straight games, two of which came against ranked opponents, and was finally playing to the potential many thought the team had all season long.But Holtmann got his team to do what Holtmann’s teams do the best: lock up.The Hoosiers shot 30 percent in the first half, taking until desperation time to get their offense working. By that time, Ohio State did just enough to get the 79-75 win, ultimately securing its bid to the tournament.A seven-point loss to the top team in the Big Ten later, and the Buckeyes got their No. 11 seed, a win that surpassed most of the wildest expectations for this team.But senior guard C.J. Jackson’s expectations were even wilder.“We are not here just to play one game in the tournament,” Jackson said. “We are here to actually win some games and make a run.”Ohio State is not built like a team that can make a run in the NCAA Tournament. The team’s defense is strong, but the offense is strictly mediocre. The Buckeyes were undersized, inconsistent and lacking in terms of momentum.Iowa State, on the other hand, had one of the best offenses in the country, preferred to play up-tempo and was playing its best basketball of the season on the way to winning the Big 12 tournament.It didn’t matter. Holtmann and Ohio State found a way to get it done.In the 62-59 win, the Buckeyes held the Cyclones to the second-fewest points they have scored all season, while Wesson and redshirt senior guard Keyshawn Woods combined for 40 of the 62 points.The win made Holtmann 5-0 in Round of 64 games, all in consecutive seasons for Ohio State and Butler, but the 11-seeded Buckeyes are the lowest-ranked team Holtmann has worked his magic on thus far.The Ohio State head coach does have something he can improve on: with the loss to Houston, Holtmann moved to 1-4 in the Round of 32, but this Ohio State team had no real business being in the second round to begin with.Nothing about the Buckeyes, from the lack of scoring options to the unimpressive offensive numbers and streaky tendencies, made them seem like a team ready to win an NCAA Tournament game this season.Yet here they are, and Ohio State is only going to get better, much better, in the upcoming season.“Ohio State is back,” Jackson said. “And it doesn’t look like it’s slowing down anytime soon.” read more
