TechCrunch reports that Google is set to announce and reveal a new web API called OpenSocial today, Nov 1. This API is supposed to enable developers to build applications that can leverage an end user’s social network, but without requiring the developer to choose which of the many silo’d social networks to support.

The OpenSocial URL on Google still isn’t lit up yet, so we’ll just have to wait to see whether they deliver the goods or rhetoric.
