Sites like videntity and claimID are now hooking together OpenID and microformats to help provide for the first distributed social networking schemes. These are the seeds of something really exciting; the ability to tie single sign-on with portable social networking means we can quickly login to any site and then pull our social networks along with us. Its going to take time and quite a bit more work to get sites to adopt a standardized means for doing this but its inevitable now that OpenID is taking hold.

Elgg is an open source social networking platform developed for LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) which encompasses weblogging, file storage, RSS aggregation, personal profiles, FOAF functionality and more.
