📑 The Real Deal About rel=me

Bookmarked The Real Deal About rel=me by Martijn van der Ven (wiki.zegnat.net)

The me link relationship can be seen as saying: the URL I am pointing to is about the same person as the page I am on. Schwartz’ Twitter profile (@rustybrick) links to his RustyBrick profile page using this link relationship, making it clear that those two pages are about the same person. And that is what rel=”me” is for. The microformats wiki (/rel-me) calls this “profile equivalence”.

This is a useful post on rel=me, an important ingredient to webmentions and the #IndieWeb.
