There is an interesting dynamic taking place in the social web space: developers are being pushed to their limits thanks to the countless platforms that have launched. Only a few large players have been able to adapt. Companies like Slide, RockYou and iLike have enough development power to extend across multiple social platforms and while even their limits are being tested, they continue to emerge victorious with the launch of each new platform.
It isnâ€™t as â€œsmooth sailingâ€ for the majority though. Smaller development companies are opting out of beta programs with Facebook Connect, MySpace Data Availability and Google Friend Connect because they are already stretched thin.
