XFN is another web3.0 concept used to define human relationship in the hyperlinks. When ever we had a blog in our blogroll add the relation of the author and the author of the other blogger using the ‘rel’ attribute in the hyperlink. For eg: Kenney is my friend, colleague, co-worker etc. So how can make kenney’s blog in my blog XFN friendly is like below.

  1. <a href="http://kenneyjacob.com" rel="friend met"> Kenney Jacob</a>
  2. <a href="http://kenneyjacob.com" rel="colleague met"> Kenney Jacob</a>
  3. <a href="http://kenneyjacob.com" rel="co-worker met"> Kenney Jacob</a>
