OStatus

Overview: OStatus is a suite of protocols that lets people on different social networks interact. The user's software or service is transparent to viewers, who can get status updates on their own sites and reply, like, or re-post updates. OStatus is an open standard for distributed status updates that references a suite of open protocols including Atom, Activity Streams, PubSubHubbub, Salmon, and Webfinger, which allows different messaging hubs to route status updates between users in near real-time. In 2012, a W3C Community Group opened to maintain and further develop the technology.
