Facebook, Google join Data Portability Workgroup
Facebook and Google anounce
that they are joining the Data Portability Workgroup
, a body advocating open standards allowing users of social web sites to easily move their data from one site to another. (This is not long after Facebook suspended Robert Scoble's account for attempting to, well, port his data from their site.) More interesting is who's Google's representative in this organisation: none other than Brad Fitzpatrick
, founder of LiveJournal and one of the originators of OpenID
, who more recently has turned his attention to the social graph problem
