It really seems like social media sites have been heating up over the past week. Or maybe even overheating. Since I’m such a sucker for looking for patterns, let’s review:
Friday, November 2, 2007:
- Google’s new social media application framework, Opensocial, is hacked within 45 minutes of launch.
Saturday – Sunday, November 3-4, 2007
- Bloggers worldwide had their hearts sink when they saw their Feedburner subscribers at half what they should have been, since they were missing Google Feedcatcher counts.
Monday, November 5, 2007
- The StumbleUpon database was inaccessible for over an hour, and continued to have intermittent issues throughout the day.
- Google social media platform OpenSocial hacked again. By the same guy.
