Abstract

Wecharacterizesocialapplicationsasthoseinvolvinginteraction among multiple autonomous agents. We are interested in the essential concepts and approaches for modeling such applications. We make the case that i* has some limitations with respect to the modeling of social applications. The prob- lem is in the intentional nature of i*. The deeper roots though lie in the centralized machine-oriented approach of current requirements engineering approaches. We recommend an interaction-oriented approach to requirements modeling, model- ing in terms of social commitments rather than dependencies, and in general, ac- commodating a distributed perspective right from the earliest phases of software engineering. For clarity, we also distinguish social commitments from various similar-sounding notions in the literature.
