Facebook and Microsoft to join OpenSocial

I heard from a reliable source (sorry, can’t reveal) today that Facebook and Microsoft will both be making announcements sometimes this week that they are joining the OpenSocial Foundation along with Google, Yahoo, and MySpace. Both companies plan to commit development resources along with some amount of cash infusion. This is huge given how both Microsoft and Facebook have been so walled off when it comes to their users data. I see this as a huge step towards general data portability effort.
