Jan Robas (2012) Open social network. EngD thesis.
In this thesis we explore the possibilities of open social networks which could be connected with each other. In the first part we describe social networks in general and basic futures of most popular social networks, then we introduce the idea of open social network. We focus on the problem of monopoly position and privacy of social networks. In the middle section we describe research and development of the prototype that we developed using free technology over the idea of open social network. The last part is dedicated to presentation of software solution, research of upgrade options and our findings. We focus on practical use cases of our web application, on security and privacy, and on pros and cons of using open social networks.
