Friend of a friend (FOAF) is a decentralized social network using semantic web technology to describe persons and their relations in a machine readable way. The Friend of a friend vocabulary can also be used to describe groups, organisations and other things.

Everybody can create a Friend of a friend profile describing himself and whom he knows. This profile can be published anywhere on the web. Many social networking websites publish the openly accessible information of their members with Friend of a friend. DBpedia uses it to publish data about persons in Wikipedia.

If you want to create a profile right away, you can use FOAF-a-Matic

More information can be found on the FOAF project website, on Wikipedia or in the specification.
