There is a lack of IPv6 utilization in early 2009; this is partly
linked to the fact that the number of IPv6 nodes is rather low.  This
document proposes to vastly increase the number of IPv6 hosts by
transforming all Social Networking platforms into IPv6 networks.
This will immediately add millions of IPv6 hosts to the existing IPv6
Internet.  This document includes sections on addressing and
transport of IPv6 over a Social Network.  A working prototype has
been developed.  This memo defines an Experimental Protocol for the 
Internet community.

EXPERIMENTAL: This memo defines an Experimental Protocol for the
