Wink.com to support Google's OpenSocial initiative

Wink.com today announced its intentions to support OpenSocial - the industry-backed application programming interface (API) developed by Google to promote interoperability and shared data across all online social networks.

Wink will release a full version update of its people search engine in one week, improving the profile-building and control features that span social networks like Bebo, Hi5, MySpace and Friendster.

"At Wink we are constantly seeking ways to make it easier and more intuitive to find and connect with old friends, classmates, colleagues and business contacts wherever they are online," said Michael Tanne, CEO of Wink. "We are encouraged by the efforts of all the companies signed on to support OpenSocial and are eager to use the API to provide enhanced people search capabilities at Wink.com."

Since its launch at Web 2.0 Summit, November 9, 2006 as the first people search engine for social profiles and online identity, Wink has maintained its leadership with over 250 million people listed in its search engine.

Many of the popular social networks that have joined the OpenSocial effort are already searchable via Wink, including MySpace, Hi5, Bebo and Friendster all supporters of Google's OpenSocial API.
