In recent years, social media has expanded from a niche application with a student-focused user base to a mainstream tool used by individuals and business to maintain and expand their social and business networks. The result is a rich source of data that can help service consumers and service providers connect with each other in new and interesting ways. This paper describes research that leverages social media to help users optimize service selections when composing executable workflows from among both web services and physical services.
