TYDR is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and by the Digital Society Initiative (DSI) of the University of Zurich.



DYNAMIC deals with distributed online social networks and with the creation of dynamic social graphs based on location, context, and profile data.

In current Online Social Networks, relations between users are mostly based on explicitly created connections. In DYNAMIC, we want to extend the concept of explicit connections by implicit, dynamic social graphs. Those graphs will be created on the users’ mobile devices, based on location, context, and profile data. The dynamic social graphs with their qualified relations can be utilized for applications like search, recommendation, the dissemination of messages, or the estimation of trust levels between users that are not yet connected.
