Any environment that enables a programmer to develop code can be a software platform, for example operating systems, content management systems and standard operating environments in major corporations. Google offers numerous software platforms - like Google Maps, Google Custom Search and Google Sites. By offering a software platform, Facebook has enabled companies like Zynga to succeed.
