The Social Interest Group is a public forum for discussion of requirements of Social technologies that enable the development and delivery of competitive products and services. The forum is intended to include --Don Buddenbaum 13:37, 7 October 2013 (UTC) the entire range of social business participants.--Don Buddenbaum 13:37, 7 October 2013 (UTC) It is intended that the forum provides a focus for participants from a wide range of sectors --Don Buddenbaum 13:37, 7 October 2013 (UTC).--Don Buddenbaum 13:37, 7 October 2013 (UTC) It is intended that the forum focus on the enterprise spaces, but identify possible interoperability with the “consumer social space” The tasks the Interest Group will undertake include: non-standards and open source related activities such as whitepaper development, use case harvesting, evangelism, etc

Success Criteria

   Participation via mailing list subscription and postings from people representing various stakeholder communities, including developers, equipment manufacturers, browser vendors, operators and users;
   Members of the Interest Group join relevant Working Groups and drive the development of work items;
   Constructive feedback on W3C deliverables posted for review on the Social IG mailing list.
   Production of stable documents addressing the work items listed in the Deliverables section.

--Don Buddenbaum 13:38, 7 October 2013 (UTC) (comment: my point of view on this is community / market / industry adoption, not making part of events, creating documents. The outcome must be useful) --Don Buddenbaum 13:38, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

Out of Scope

The technical development of standards is not in the scope of the Interest Group. Instead the Interest Group will recommend work items for other groups.


Standards for Social: current state and roadmap – Block Architecture

   This document takes a broader look at all the Social technologies under development and tracks their status and adoption

--Don Buddenbaum 13:40, 7 October 2013 (UTC) ( comment : should not this be the ”famous" social platform? If the focus is social tech assessment do we have the means and the tools to do it?) --Don Buddenbaum 13:40, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

Busines Architecture (Workshop report recommendation)

--Don Buddenbaum 13:40, 7 October 2013 (UTC) (comment : for me a business architecture includes strategy, business model, value chain and business processes. I think this is a different thing and must be discussed) --Don Buddenbaum 13:40, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

Dependencies and Liaisons

W3C Groups

W3C Community and Business Groups The Social Interest Group will watch for and coordinate with Community Groups whose work are likely to have an impact on the usage of Social technologiess. External Groups OMA The Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) develops technologies targeted at mobile devices that may have a direct relevance to the deployment of some Web technologies on mobile. IETF The Internet Engineering Task Force develops the protocols that clients use to connect to the Web; ensuring these protocols match the needs of mobile devices and networks is an important part of achieving the group’s mission tbd


Participation is open to the public (W3C members and non-members). Effective participation in the Social Interest Group is expected to consume ? for each participant. In order to make rapid progress, the group MAY form several task forces, each working on a separate topic. The group members may participate in one or more task forces.


This group conducts its substantive work exclusively on the public mailing list and encourages non-member contributions on that list. Administrative tasks may be conducted in Member-only communications. Task forces may use separate public mailing lists to conduct their work. Information about the group (deliverables, participants, face-to-face meetings, teleconferences, etc.) is available from the Web and Mobile Interest Group home page.

Decision Policy

Consistent with its mission, this group is not a decision-making body, but rather provides a forum for discussion and advice on different topics relating to its scope. Where there is consensus among the representatives of W3C members in the group, it will be forwarded as a consensus position. Where the group does not reach agreement, the different positions (whether held by W3C members or other members of the group) will be forwarded together, with any decisions to be made by a relevant working group according to its processes.

Patent Disclosures

The Web and Mobile Interest Group provides an opportunity to share perspectives on the topic addressed by this charter. W3C reminds Interest Group participants of their obligation to comply with patent disclosure obligations as set out in Section 6 of the W3C Patent Policy. While the Interest Group does not produce Recommendation-track documents, when Interest Group participants review Recommendation-track specifications from Working Groups, the patent disclosure obligations do apply. For more information about disclosure obligations for this group, please see the W3C Patent Policy Implementation.
