People and social overview

Microsoft Graph supports social gestures in a user's social context, and provides access to useful people and social data.

Aggregate and extract specific information about people

Use the person resource and the People API to aggregate information about a person from across mail, contacts, and social networks. The results are ordered by their relevance based on mutliple communication, collaboration, and business relationships. The API lets you browse, sort, select, filter, or search for persons based on your criteria.

Manage @-Mentions

Calling out a recipient to notify and get the recipient's attention in a message is a common social gesture. The mention resource and the Mentions API provide a light-weight mechanism to call out a recipient in a message, get all the messages in which a user is notified using an @-mention, or get each mention in a message.
