Zembly lets you create social apps for Facebook and more

It's a new breed of software as a service, allowing users to manipulate existing content on social networking sites.

I just watched this video demo of Zembly, a relatively new service that you create collaborative applications on the fly and deploy them to services like Facebook, Meebo, and the iPhone.

There's lots of widgets and Javascript involved, but it seems easy to use and overall Zembly is an interesting product as it lets users actually manipulate walled-garden content.

It's also interesting in that the company makes use of a wide array of open APIs and developed their own to create a networked effect of usage.

In a bit of a twist, Zembly runs on Solaris and Sun hardware at Network.com. Maybe Sun is getting their cloud act together after all?
