Check it out!! Google's Social Graph API

OK, so it has a dumb name, but the point is that it links together all those social networking sites you may have signed up to, like Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Plaxo, etc etc.

So, this is cool for you and me who are using these networks, but what does this mean for associations? Well, I'm thinking it could mean that an association could try setting up a group on an existing network like Facebook, for free, to test the waters, and at such time that you decide it's all working swimmingly and you want to create your own made-to-order social network, you could easily link everyone from one to the other. Sweet!
