<p>Social circles can be valuable in online applications, but existing approaches don't readily support such grouping: they either require a user to manually tag connections or offer no more than broad-brush acquaintanceship between connections. Platys Social is a novel approach that learns users' social circles and prioritizes their connections by bringing together contextual information and user interactions. Platys Social runs incrementally, can execute on a resource-limited mobile device, and can potentially avoid storing users' private information on a remote site.</p>
