SOCIAL Service allows you to connect users with others and build social networks.
When you request a SOCIAL Service operation, you must use SOCIAL API domain instead topoos API domain.
Note: Currently you can build networks based on following relationships.
- How to Add a Follow.
- How to Retrieve number of Follows and Followers of a user.
- How to Retrieve recommended connections based on a user mesh.
In the figure above:
- Odin is follower of Thor, and Odin is followed_by Thor.
- Odin is followed_by Loki.
- Loki is followed_by Fenris but Odin is not connected with Fenris: because of this Fenris is a Recommended new connection for Odin. (This happens also if Loki and Fenris are not connected but Thor is a Fenris follower).
