Thanks a lot for the proposal.

Although variations or extensions like a "Social Profile" probably won't
come until Java EE 8 on top of a more modular Java Platform, our newly
proposed Java API for Social Media leverages technologies and standards
popular among Social Networks, and REST beside JSON is probably the
single-most important one.

Thus, allowing a leaner out of the box foundation for both providers and
consumers of Social Media via Java Social sounds like a very good idea.
Lowering the barrier also to provide "Hybrid" or Enterprise Social Networks
for companies who don't have the budget of Madonna or Lady Gaga who
recently started her own Social Network[?]
