Bebo, the social network with a predominantly European user base has released figures of the number of platform application installs since they opened up their platform a week ago. The magic number: 4,250,409 across 52 apps. Mashable comments here.
The team at Creative Enclave, including yours truly who is the company’s Chairman, is very pleased to announce the open beta launch of Imperial Galaxy. We’ve had fun internally playing this science fiction massively multiplayer game, but it’s time to open it up: we are keen to get as many people as possible into the game so we can continue to test, tweak and improve it.
Facebook has made its move in response to Google’s Open Social by offering up its platform for other social networks. Bebo has adopted this and I suspect there will be others who will follow suit.
This may prove to be a catalyst for getting Open Social up and running – so far it has been a bit of a damp squib.
