<entry-title>Current Contact Formats</entry-title>

This page documents current contact schemas, formats, and efforts.

Though the vCard specifications format is by far the most popular/successful contact format in desktop applications and mobile devices, (with hCard 1.0 being the most widely adopted contact format on the web), it is useful to document other formats as well, even those created after vCard/hCard, noting especially their differences / extensions. In particular, as we document vCard suggestions, it will be helpful to note how other formats may have attempted to solve similar problems.
