Flixster today announced support for the new OpenSocial API that is being launched by Google as a fundamental step toward quickly and easily making the web more social. Flixster was demonstrated as a featured social community during last night's launch of OpenSocial.
Flixster is a social application that lets people rate, review, discover and socialize around films. Launched in January of 2006, Flixster has quickly grown to the largest movie community and movie rating site on the web where over 10 million monthly users share their movie preferences.
OpenSocial will allow Flixster to quickly expand its availability to movie lovers by extending the reach of Flixster's service to users within the communities on MySpace, Orkut, Hi5, and Ning via the OpenSocial API.
"The web itself is becoming a social platform and we are excited about Google's efforts to make integrating social applications easier," said Flixster co-founder and CEO Joe Greenstein.
"With the release of OpenSocial, we will be able to provide movie fans and their friends access to Flixster on any community on the web."
Flixster is a social utility for people who love movies - a destination where people can rate, review, discover and socialize around films.
