Social Web of Things from Ericsson Research: things will have 'friends'

Social Web of Things from Ericsson Research shows that "people in general find it hard to relate to technical networks and do not feel comfortable managing them. Instead we should set up the internet of things like a human network. We have a relationship with our things, and our things have relationships with each other. We are providing a glimpse of a possible future beyond the internet of things. What is about to happen is that things will have 'friends' - and post messages, follow news feeds, and even chat with other things and/or friends."
