hCard+XFN supporting friends lists

Welcome! If you have an account on any of the following services, you already have a list of your friends' hCards with your relationship to them in XFN which you can provide to other services to save time by either importing or subscribing to social network information so you can change it on one site, and have other sites automatically updated, rather than having to re-add/remove all your social network contacts multiple times everytime you meet a new person, decide to unfriend someone etc.

Implement hCard XFN supporting friends lists

Want to implement hCard+XFN on your site so you can list it here?

  1. Markup friends with hCard. See the hCard authoring page for how to mark-up names, links, icons of people in friends lists with hCard.
  2. XFN on friend links. Friends lists should be marked up with XFN per XFN clarifications: mapping community site friends. See also the XFN: Getting Started page for how to markup links to people with XFN. See also the hCard examples: hCard and XFN which demonstrates this and the previous step quite well.
  3. rel="me" to a user's other URLs. Hyperlinks to users' home pages or blogs should have the XFN rel="me" attribute to support user-driven (since the user chooses the URL to link to) identity consolidation.
  4. rel="me" on "View All Friends..." links. If a user profile page on your site links to a separate page for that user's friends list, add rel="me" to that link.
  5. rel="me" on friends list pagination links. If your site paginates a user's friend list into multiple pages, be sure to add rel="me next" to your "Next" pagination hyperlinks, and similarly rel="me prev" to your "Previous" pagination hyperlinks.


Please also consider implementing hCard user profiles.
