'''xFolk''' (from "xFolksomony") is a simple and open format for publishing collections of bookmarks. It better enables services for improving user experience and sharing data in web-based bookmarking software. xFolk may be embedded in HTML or XHTML, Atom, RSS, and arbitrary XML. It is one of several open [[microformats|microformat]] standards.

Social bookmarking services let users save and tag bookmarks to share with other users.  Over the past year, the number of these services has mushroomed to [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_bookmarking over 20], with popular examples including: [http://del.icio.us del.icio.us], [http://furl.net furl], [http://de.lirio.us de.lirio.us], [http://jots.com jots], and [http://blogmarks.net blogmarks].

Lack of an open, interoperable data standard is a major issue in using social bookmarking services. An open standard would make it possible to easily collect social bookmark data and remix it to invent new services along the lines of  [http://gataga.com gataga]'s experimental bookmark search engine.  An open standard would also make it possible to write javascripts that work across services [http://johnvey.com/features/deliciousdirector/ as some currently do for del.icio.us], enabling across-the-board improvements in user experience.

xFolk is an open social bookmarking standard that aims to achieve both benefits. Social bookmarking services that adopt xFolk will continue to differentiate themselves with data services. But, the data itself will be easy to manipulate by third party scripts and easy to share. As a result, bookmarking services will be able to offer a wider array of options to their users at low cost and focus on what truly differentiates them. Individuals or groups operating standalone bookmark repositories will have access to a wider array of functionality than they can produce on their own.

Extensive analysis of social bookmarking services and linkblogs, reported on [http://thecommunityengine.com/home/archives/xfolk elsewhere], reveals that the data published by both bookmarking services and '''many''' different linkblogs are described by the following implied schema:
+
-
* A bookmarked or tagged link.
+
I MADE THOUSANDS OF ACCOUNTS IN MICROFORMATS WIKI GO TO CHECK OUT THE USER LISTI MADE THOUSANDS OF ACCOUNTS IN MICROFORMATS WIKI GO TO CHECK OUT THE USER LIST
-
* A title for the entry.
+
-
* Tags for the link.
+
-
* An extended description or summary of the link.
+
-
As demonstrated in early iterations of the xFolk standard, this general schema can be translated into markup by:
+

-
# creating a container element for each entry of class <code>xfolkentry</code>,
+
I MADE THOUSANDS OF ACCOUNTS IN MICROFORMATS WIKI GO TO CHECK OUT THE USER LISTI MADE THOUSANDS OF ACCOUNTS IN MICROFORMATS WIKI GO TO CHECK OUT THE USER LIST
-
# using an <a> element for the bookmarked or tagged link of class <code>taggedlink</code>,
+
-
# using title attribute for the tagged link <a> element, if it exists, as the entry title, otherwise using the element value,
+
-
# using [[rel-tag]] for the tags, and
+
-
# using a container element of class <code>description</code>, such as &lt;p>, for any extended description or summary.
+
-
A given xFolk entry will always contain a tagged link including a title with all other elements optional. Entries may have more than one tag as well as more than one element of class <code>description</code>. Multiple elements of class <code>description</code> are ordered by default document order. Semantic elements within xFolk entries may be nested at arbitray depths.

Many social bookmarking systems exist, each with its own markup conventions.  Further, many people are already publishing personal link blogs.  xFolk is designed with ease of adapting to these current practices as a primary goal.  Therefore, few assumptions are made as to the exact kinds of elements used for an xFolk entry.  Rather, the work of defining semantics is left entirely to the class and rel (in the case of [[rel-tag]]) attribute values.

It is expected that developers will use [http://www.w3.org/TR/xpath XPath] or equivalent syntax in accessing xFolk entry elements.  a requirement for XPath is that the HTML document be well-formed but not necessarily valid.  Thus, while not optimal, it is possible to serviceably use xFolk in an HTML document that does not validate.

Converting markup to be conformant with xFolk is almost always this easy.  The advantage of xFolk is that it provides one set of class attributes that can be reused across all services and link blogs, almost always with no loss of granularity.  The next section presents several more examples to illustrate this point.

=== Link blogs ===
+
-
 
+
-
Social bookmarking services are only the most recent examples of people publishing links.  Link blogs have been around almost since the beginning of blogging. They represent somewhat more of a challenge for xFolk because their markup tends to be less semantic from the outset. The following examples illustrate some particular challenges and how they can be overcome.

== Work in progress ==
+
-
Although this specification has recently begun to stabilize as indicated by the version RC1, it is still a work in progress. If warranted, I am prepared to go through multiple release candidates to achieve the narrow purpose of making bookmark entries more genrally accessible with as with as light weight a format as possible. All changes since the last iteration have been motivated by the implementation experience of developers attempting to achieve this narrow aim.  Further changes will also most likely be motivated by implementation concerns.  See "future directions" below for additional microformat possibilities.
+
-
 
+
-
=== Changes since xFolk 0.4 ===
+
-
The class attribute value <code>extended</code> was deprecated in favor <code>description</code> to better conform with other microformat usage and some requests during implementation.  The other change has been to allow use of multiple elements of class <code>extended</code> based on some use cases discovered in implementation.
+
-
 
+
-
=== Future directions ===
+
-
There are several extensions one might imagine for xFolk. Frequently, these extensions are best achieved by combining xFolk with another microformat. For instance, one might want to indicate his or her evaluation of the bookmarked item. This might be achieved by using [[vote-links | Vote Links]] or [[hreview | hReview]] with xFolk.
+
-
 
+
-
One can also imagine extending xFolk to provide data conformant with various social bookmarking service APIs, for instance to provide all bookmarks by tag. These APIs are currently too fluid for specification in any kind of standard. The APIs and the functionality they provide represent one way social bookmarking services and meta services can differentiate themselves.
+
-
 
+
-
A companion format called "xFolk definition" is under development. xFolk definition will provide a means of explicitly defining the tags used in social bookmarks.
