Now that we have a good understanding of entities, let’s look at a practical open tool that allows us to implement them: OpenLike.
The OpenLike protocol gives us a quick way to attach entities to our existing social profiles. It is similar to the Facebook Like utility, but integrates a number of different sharable sources within a small, easy-to-assemble package. By defining a standard way for users to flesh out their social graphs with like and dislike preferences, OpenLike expands the user/entity relationships on the Web.
We’ve already explored entities and relationships in depth, and how important they are to the future of social interactions, so let’s get right into what the OpenLike protocol comprises.
