With the growing impact of the Web 2.0 on our every day life, people start to use more and more different web based services like Facebook or Twitter. Thereby, they generate and distribute personal and social information such as interests, preferences and goals that are stored in a user profile. This leads to open challenges regarding the users ability to keep track of their personal information but it also offers chances to use this data to enhance personalization and recommendations of existing services. This paper presents a user-centric, thus privacy preserving, system to cope with these challenges and a personal user interface (UI) that allows users to manage and share personal data.
