In this paper, we present a framework that bridges body sensor networks (BSNs) and social networks by mapping a subgroup of members of one's social network with each sensory data feed of his BSN. We leverage the open stack of the Internet by creating an overlay on top of existing social networks. Thus, any sensor triggering sensory data push from a BSN is directly forwarded to the interested subgroup of one's social network only. In response to event-based spontaneous sensory data push from a BSN to members of social networks, the framework also provides a downstream RESTful access to each of the sensory data by the authorized members of social networks. We present the detailed design and implementation of the framework and share our preliminary test results.
