<p>As the Internet's hourglass architecture connects various resources to various applications, an infrastructure that collects information from various social signals can support an ever-evolving set of socially aware applications and services. Among the proposed infrastructure's features are social sensors to capture and interpret social signals from user interactions, a personal social information aggregator, and a set of social-inference functions as its API for social applications.</p>
