What is FoaF?

The Friend of a Friend (FOAF) project is about creating a Web of machine-readable homepages describing people, the links between them and the things they create and do.


Technically, it is an RDF/XML Semantic Web vocabulary. Because of this, FOAF data is easy to process and merge. Practically, you write some information about you, your interests and your friends into a file and put this file on the web. Your friends and everybody interested can then read this file to learn something about you.
