notes

Session comments and Q&A.

profile equivalency

Profile equivalency is a way of declaring that two social network profiles are equivalent in that they represent the same person.

How do you represent profile equivalency?

Use XFN rel="me" identity consolidation.

Adaptive Path folks (Kim) noted that users don't necessarily want their online profiles consolidated.

This clearly indicates the need for a design principle: user driven profile equivalency.

...

"marketplace of interfaces" - Cameron Walters

How to paginate thru friends pages - e.g. Twitter.

Start with, does Twitter do rel="me" for home page URLs? Yes it does.

Use rel="me" to link to a friends list page that is separate from a profile page.

If that friends list is paginated, put rel="me next" on the "Next" links, and rel="me prev" on the "Previous" link.

...

What is the incentive?

Big sites would want to be the place that everyone subscribes to for their profile information.

We need some open source software to grab the XFN stuff from this site. (Editor's note: simultaneously with this meeting, Joseph Smarr was finalizing just that which he open sourced soon thereafter).

There is also hKit - both open source, and a web service that parses hCards at a URL and returns JSON.

There is an app on Facebook that lets you have an hCard on your profile page.

There needs to be a notion of profile feeds, syndicating your profile out from a social network service (just as you can syndicate your blog out from a blogging service).

Is it possible (or does it even make sense) to put hCards in Atom feeds? In short yes, as part of the entry-content or entry-summary for example.

...

Blaine asked: are there microformats for:

"My profile page is here:"

Ryan King recommends: use "uid" + "url" inside the hCard that represents the person. Thus the "uid" property can be used by a site to point to the canonical identifying URL for a person on that site (which, for example, might also be that person's OpenID on that site also.
