The Google PR Machine Comes Out With Guns Blazin'

Last night Mike Arrington broke the news that Google is supposedly launching the OpenSocial tomorrow. Soon after I posted a response questioning the validity of this. Throughout the day I have been pinging people involved with Google’s new platform and everybody came back with the same response: “this is definitely news to me.” According to a number of sources Google will simply be announcing a new standard that enables developers to interact directly with the partnering social platforms.
