Creating Portable Social Networks with Microformats

  1. 1. creating portable social networks with microformats
  2. 2. social networks pownce.com ma.gnolia.com edenbee.com upcoming.yahoo.com last.fm twitter.com flickr.com Social network fatigue? More important than that: freedom of movement; reducing friction when moving from service to service. This isn’t about giving up one network in favour of another. Interoperability is the goal.
  3. 3. username password antipattern Suck email addresses out of address books by requesting webmail username and password on a third-party site. This teaches users how to be phished. Insecure.
  4. 4. API+OAuth google contacts flickr Safe and secure but complex to implement. Does knowledge of someone’s email address really define a relationship anyway?
