What’s the problem and how to solve it ?

What if I use multiple services and I want to… Merge my social networks between various websites Invite my friends from a social media website to a new service I’ve just registered Move the stuff I have on one service to another (e.g. move all my blog posts, comments, etc. from WordPress.com to “Acme Blogs”) And more: See my stuff on a third-party service providing an aggregate view, like FriendFeed, but in an open way Archive and preserve my social media contributions …

Merge my social networks between various websites

Invite my friends from a social media website to a new service I’ve just registered

Move the stuff I have on one service to another (e.g. move all my blog posts, comments, etc. from WordPress.com to “Acme Blogs”)

And more:

See my stuff on a third-party service providing an aggregate view, like FriendFeed, but in an open way

Archive and preserve my social media contributions



So many social media sites… * Source: Smashcut Media, www.smashcut-media.com

Social Network Portability with FOAF (Friend of a Friend)

The Semantic Web in brief “ The Semantic Web is an extension of the current web in which information is given well-defined meaning , better enabling computers and people to work in cooperation ” - Tim Berners-Lee, James Hendler, Ora Lassila, Scientific American, May 2001 A common model to describe data in a machine-readable way: RDF (Resource Description Framework) RDF statements are triples (subject predicate object): XTech2008 isA Conference . XTech2008 takesPlaceIn Dublin . Uldis isPresentingAt Xtech2008 .

<head><link rel=&quot;meta&quot; type=&quot;application/rdf+xml&quot; title=&quot;FOAF&quot; href=&quot;foaf.rdf&quot; /></head>

FOAF + OpenID Scenario

Bob creates an account on Networkr, a new social networking website, using OpenID

Networkr retrieves the FOAF URI thanks to an auto-discovery link

From the FOAF file, it identifies if there are any people already subscribed to Networkr who are listed in Bob’s defined relationships

If that is the case, Bob can add them as “local connections”, share data with them, etc. without having to once again search for / add his friends

Specific rules:

If I know X from Flickr, he / she can see my pictures on Networkr
