Half-Baked: Social Address Book

I still have a Facebook account. I don’t use it that often but I keep it around because it’s my only way of contacting certain people. They’re obviously not close friend but at the least they’re people that I don’t want to lose touch with.

I want a ‘Social’ Address Book. An address book which has the following features:

  • Everyone creates a Social Address Book account and adds their contact information.
  • I can add other people to my address book.
  • They can approve me and choose which information I get to see.
  • I can choose which information they get to see.

That’s it. No mechanism for communications, no trying to own your data, no trying to own your channel of communications. Just contact information.
