The goal of the Drupal Social Initiative (Social API) is to harmonise Social Networking functionality in Drupal; provide more functionality to end-users; provide easier site creation and configuration to site administrators and developers; and enable easier module maintenance for developers.

Drupal Social Initiative was actually initiated by a GSOC student, who spend his whole summer to make it. The main goal of Drupal Social Initiative is to allow the integration of different Social Networks functionality like Authentication, Widgets, etc., to a Drupal site. Drupal Social Initiative can be easily configured by end-users to integrate it on their site.
