This page contains all of the important details for Firefox Social Directory.

Project Description

Mozilla has permitted partners to activate their own manifests in Firefox Social API through an activation process on a partner-hosted domain. The array of activation styles has been different in each case. A consistent manner and appearance of activation within a Mozilla domain may be more impactful on engagement and user perception. We would like to introduce a template style of activation as an alternative to partner-hosted activation. This tool would also permit snippet promoted partners to have a higher activation rate than the previous blog promoted means.
