This specification describes the social network graph and how it is represented in the protocol.
In this context a social graph means a graph that represents social relations between entities.
The DSNP graph represents nodes as DSNP User Ids.
Future. See the DSNP Whitepaper for foundational ideas.
A "follow" is the act of publicly following a DSNP User Identity, which results in adding this DSNP User Id to a user's social graph.
An "unfollow" is the act of publicly unfollowing a DSNP User Identity which results in the removal of this DSNP User Id from a user's social graph.
There is currently no concept of "friendship" within the DSNP network. Friendship requires a mutual acknowledgment between two different DSNP User Identities. Friendship could be thought of as "mutual following" - where two DSNP User Identities are following each other.
