Types of users in Open Social

Owner — This is the person who owns the account and has installed your application. Depending on container support, this can be specified with the string ‘OWNER’, opensocial.DataRequest.PersonId.OWNER, or opensocial.IdSpec.PersonId.OWNER. The latter is the accepted standard for the latest version of OpenSocial.

Viewer — A viewer is a person logged in to the social network who can be viewing either that person’s own page that has your application on it, or another user’s page that has your application on it. Depending on container support, this can be specified with the string ‘VIEWER’, opensocial.DataRequst.PersonId.VIEWER, or opensocial.IdSpec.PersonId.VIEWER. (The latter
is the latest version of OpenSocial.)

Friends — Friends appear in the social network as either the owner or viewer.
