Sharing using social networks in a composable Web of Things
Abstract—In the emerging “Web of Things”, digitally augmented everyday objects are seamlessly integrated to the Web by reusing Web patterns such as REST. This results in an ecosystem of real-world devices that can be reused and recombined to create new ad-hoc applications. This, however, implies that devices are available to the world. In this paper, we propose a platform that enables people to share their Web-enabled devices so that others can use them. We illustrate how to rely on existing social networks and their open APIs (e.g. OpenSocial) to enable owners to leverage the social structures in place for sharing smart things with others. We finally discuss some of the challenges we identified towards a composable Web of Things.
