Social Indexing is related to on‐line social networks. It is a new paradigm to personalize web content and make that personalization available no matter what device is browsing the Web. Social Indexing is also a new paradigm for developers. Standards are being developed such that web developers can maintain code on multiple platforms with minimal effort. The Internet is traditionally an impersonal web of sites. When interacting with websites, the site has no concrete idea who the user is. It is not truly possible for these traditional websites to effectively customize content. Customization attempts have been made in the form of using cookies to remember what a person might have viewed on previous visits and other such methods.
