I would use your new My Web 2.0, which has some cool social network searching features, if only you didn’t make it so hard to re-build my social network on your site.
Perhaps, before trying new, fancy ideas, you could solve a problem that really bothers many people- the YASNS effect- wherein people keep releasing new social networking services, yet each is a data silo.
Here are some ways you could get started right now:
- You could look at my XFN data, that’s in my blogroll.
- You grab the foaf file from my tribe profile.
- You could scrape my Flickr account page. Wait, you own flickr now, so you have the data. Use it!
And while you’re at it, get my bookmarks from del.icio.us. I won’t re-enter them on your site.
