Building on the OpenSocial API suite, developers can create applications that are interoperable within the context of different social networks. Because social applications have access to a network's social graph, messaging systems and update feeds, the OpenSocial standard enables Internet-based businesses to create new kinds of value-creating partnerships without extending themselves beyond their own means or competencies. This chapter argues that by entering structured partnerships, e-ventures and social networks can gain sustainable competitive advantage by integrating their highly complementary resources and capabilities. Building on the Resource-based View (RBV) of the firm and the concept of core competencies, it is shown that both partners can significantly benefit from the technology-induced possibilities that arise from the OpenSocial standard.
