social standards refers to web standards that have a social component, that is, for people (e.g. h-card), relationships between people (e.g. XFN), content published by people meant to be read (e.g. h-entry) & replied to such (e.g. rel-in-reply-to), and notifications thereof (e.g. webmention).

Contents

People

Mark up instances and references to people using the h-card microformat.

Identity

In addition, mark up a person's personal web site URL and hyperlink with rel-me as a step towards Web sign-in/IndieAuth support.

Relationships

Markup links to people from pages about other people using XFN rel values.

Content

Markup content written by people using h-entry, including marking up the author with p-author and h-card.

Replies

Replies should themselves also be marked up with h-entry, with u-in-reply-to property hyperlinking to the original post that is being commented on, and send a Webmention to that original accordingly.

Notifications

When publishing a reply, implementations should also send a webmention to the original post.
