Google releases it’s Social Graph API

Google has released it’s new API (Application Programming Interface) graphing publicly available social connections on the web.
You can see more about the Social Graph API for developers or have a go at looking up your own public profiles and see who is connected to you at the Social Graph – My connections demo page.

(Want to understand more about what how API’s work? Last autumn, I discovered this simple explanatory video by Matt Dickman which is a great introduction for non-geeks into API’s.)
