My client helps people build trust and connection online. Our user data network powers a new generation of apps that run on shared, open, distributed infrastructure. It's an entirely new model for data on the web, putting users in control of their online identity and giving developers a way to build more lightweight, secure and collaborative experiences. We envision a future where data, content and social networks follow users from app to app, letting any developer create fantastic products on this shared platform.
Our suite if APIs let any application manage user profiles, reputation, social content, and other data on the distributed web. Users can view and control their data through our Social Profiles app. All this is live today, and we're just getting started.
