In February 2015 a new social network shall be launched at the University of Twente! Students can then skip the baby photos and easily discover and share the information which is relevant to them! A fundamental difference - compared to traditional social networks - is the emphasis on the content and that all content is structured in categories and with facets. Creating a social, structured web offers great opportunities and challenges along many dimensions like UI design, democratics, algorithms and scalability, which are addressed in the talk. Additionally, the talk provides a short demo of the current state of the platform.
