Open Social comes out of Orkut Sandbox

April 25, 2008 by Sarath DR in Internet with 0 Comments

A couple of days back open social applications were launched in orkut. The initial responses are pretty good and most of the users are very much interested in getting familiar with this. Gaming applications are more popular among these and no doubt it will make users to spend more time on social networks with open social. One of the impressive games that I found was Type Ricer, it is really amazing.

As an open social developer it is very effortless to make an application if you have basic knowledge in java script and html. For example I have made a sample application for Contact Virus which shows the contact lists of the contact virus user on their orkut profile. Actually the whole thing is running in a different platform, I just used a iframe to show the result in the profile and a mapping mechanism to show corresponding lists of the user.

   <!--[CDATA[
<mce:script type="text/javascript"><! 
function getData() {
var req = opensocial.newDataRequest();
req.add(req.newFetchPersonRequest('OWNER'), 'owner');
req.add(req.newFetchPeopleRequest ('VIEWER_FRIENDS'), 'viewerFriends');
req.send(onLoad);
};
function onLoad(dataResponse) {
var owner = dataResponse.get('owner').getData();
var viewerFriends = dataResponse.get('viewerFriends').getData();
var html = '';
var iFrame = document.getElementById("iframeId");
iFrame.src = 'http://www.contactvirus.com/opensocial/index?orkutid='+owner.getId();
document.getElementById('message').innerHTML = html;
};
// -->

So many applications are in mind yet to be completed. This is really interesting and provides great advertisement scope in social networking sites.
