Social Service Beta now available in Adobe Flash Platform Services, powered by Gigya

Posted On: Filed Under: Gigya Updates

As promised, we’re letting the Gigya community know that Adobe’s Social Service Beta, part of the new Adobe Flash Platform Services suite,  is available as of today.  Here’s how Adobe describes the new product:

“The Social service enables you to write applications that integrate leading social networks such as Facebook and MySpace into your apps.  The service, implemented through an easy to use API, provides an abstraction layer that connects with different networks. This removes the complexity and repetitive work of having to implement multiple APIs in order to integrate social features from multiple social networks into your application. The service also insulates developers against underlying social network changes;  as the underlying APIs at the supported social networks change, the service adapts to those changes so you don’t have to rush updated versions of your app to market. Additional social networks will become available in the future and will work with existing applications with little additional development effort. The capabilities in the Social service are powered by Gigya.”

This new Gigya partnered service, now integrated with Adobe’s authoring tools,  is powered by Gigya’s Social Login, the same service used by,, NBC Universal, and more than 2500 others.
