—The rapid development of communication and
networking has lessened geographical boundaries among actors
in social networks. In social networks, actors often want
admittance and permission over databases depending upon
their rights, privacy, context, privileges, etc. Managing and
handling knowledge based admittance of actors is complex and
hard for which broad range of technologies need to be called.
Admittance based on dynamic rights and circumstances of
actors impose major tasks on systems. In this paper, we present
a Generic Social Network (GSN) to render admittance to actors
in social networks along with permission over databases taking
privacy and status of them into consideration. The designed
GSN is tested over an Agriculture Social Network (ASN) which
utilises distinct rights and privileges of actors related to the
agriculture occupation, and provides admittance to actors in it.
