Open Social Network (also known as OSN and OpenSN™) helps people convert social network profiles from one system to another.
Open Social Network is an Open Standard for an intermediary format that a growing number of social network profiles can be converted to & from.
The Open Social Network specification refers to the interchange format - a method of representing online profile data.
Open Social Network has been used by FindMeOn®.com since October 2006 to manage, track, and analyze online identities. In October 2007, 50MM+ online profiles were stored and analyzed in Open Social Network native format.
FindMeOn® introduced as Open Social Network in 2006 and began to use abbrreviation OpenSN™ in conjunction with the the full name. Open Social Network is now migrating our abbreviation to OSN to make better use of programming namespaces.
