# Universal Social Network Bus (USNB)#
USNB is a set of service components. You can use one or more of the following service components according to your needs:
Computer-mediated communication can be defined as any form of human communication achieved through computer technology. From its beginnings, it has been shaping the way humans interact with each other, and it has influenced many areas of society. There exist a plethora of social interaction services enabling computer-mediated social communication (e.g., Skype, Facebook Messenger, Telegram, WhatsApp, Twitter, Slack, etc.). Based on personal preferences, users may prefer a social interaction services rather than another. As a result, users sharing same interests may not be able to interact since they are using incompatible technologies. To tackle this interoperability barrier, we propose USNB, a middleware solution targeted to enable the interaction via heterogeneous social interaction services.
USNB is composed by set of service components. You can use one or more of the following service components according to your needs:
