> Since April 2009, the Social Web Incubator Group studied the systems and technologies that permit the description and identification of people, groups, organizations, and user-generated content in extensible and privacy-respecting ways, with a goal to propose a way forward for the W3C to participate productively in the wider Social Web ecosystem.
> 
> In the report, the XG present a framework for understanding the Social Web and many relevant standards (from both within and outside the W3C), and conclude by proposing a strategy for making the Social Web a "first-class citizen" of the Web.
> 
> In the wider Social Web community outside the W3C, one of the most inspiring events was the beginning of a test-driven approach towards creating a federated Social Web at the Federated Social Web Summit. You will read in the XG report that while the W3C should not favor any one particular technology or standard, at this stage the W3C should offer resources to this grassroots effort by helping to start a Federated Social Web Incubator Group. The report also recommends that the W3C host a workshop to investigate identity in the browser with existing communities in order to determine how digital identity fits into the One Web platform.
