Like many, I now have more virtual friends than “real” friends. In fact, some of these virtual friends feel like “real” friends. And, by “real”, I mean people I’ve seen, touched, hugged, or spoken with directly…face-to-face. But, most of my virtual friends I met through other virtual friends. I have a large network of people who are a Friend Of A Friend (FOAF). And, darnit, sometimes I just want to take my whole social network with me to a new site rather than starting over from scratch.
A small snapshot of one of my FOAF files.
I’m reminded of those Verizon commercials where you look out the window and there they are. Your whole darn network.
