This article draws from our experience in the PALETTE project with the integration of several Web applications and services, to propose a list of properties that allow Web applications to become part of an online social space. That categorization is useful both for group mediators that want to select the right technology, and for software developers that want to build services with a high degree of acceptability. The article discusses the concept of online social space, then it lists several properties to make software socializable. Finally, by looking at current standards and practices, it proposes some means to implement the properties into software.
