This report describes a distributed approach to social filtering based on the agent metaphor. Firstly, previous approaches are described, such as cognitive filtering and social filtering. Then a couple of previously implemented systems are presented and then a new system design is proposed. The main goal is to give the requirements and design of an agent-based system that recommends web-documents. The presented approach combines cognitive and social filtering to get the advantages from both techniques. Finally, a prototype implementation called WebCondor is described and results of testing the system are reported and discussed.
