XFN (Xhtml Friends Network)

XFN is a simple way to represent human relationships using hyperlinks. In recent years, blogs and blogrolls have become the fastest growing area of the Web. XFN enables web authors to indicate their relationship(s) to the people in their blogrolls simply by adding a ‘rel’ attribute to their "a href" tags. 


Adam and Brad have met each other through mutual acquaintances, and had a few interesting conversations at parties where they found they had several interests in common. They have linked to each other in their respective blogs as follows: 


// in Adam blog: 

<a href="" rel="met friend">Brad</a> 


// in Brad blog: 

<a href="" rel="met acquaintance">Adam</a>
