Category : General 02 Jun 2010 10:42 PM | Industry News
OExchange we spearheaded with partners like Google, Microsoft, and LinkedIn. OExchange, establishes a common way for services to receive content, defines how third party tools, like the AddThis platform, can dynamically discover and share content to these new services, as well as how sharing tools can read and set a user's sharing preferences.
Google, Microsoft, LinkedIn, Digg, Clearspring, Echo, Instapaper, Posterous, AddToAny, PrintFriendly, Springpad, Webs and yfrog have already signed on to support the standard.
OExchange makes it possible to share any URL-based content with any service on the web. It defines:
A common way for services to receive content, removing any and all service-specific integration requirements A discovery feature so services can publish themselves and their endpoints, making it possible to integrate with services you didn't even know about at development time A decentralized, user-centric model for saving preferred services, making sharing more personal.
