Close to the heels of GMail there came Google Docs, Orkut and Google Page Creator…. there are many but these are the most commonly used – I have tried with Google Sites, but I get an error everytime. They have all become quite successful and recently Orkut has exposed its OpenSocial api for developers to build gadgets … something Facebook was having earlier and still has .
In fact Vivaty and Lively were launced to the public on the same day. Both Vivaty and Lively needs a player to be downloaded which I dont like, there are virtual networking sites which work directly on Flash, ( Minilife ). I dont know what are is the architecture behind Lively and Vivaty .
But with I guess if these are RIA applications , then SilverLight or Adobe AIR would have been needed for installation , well these are my guesses.
