Due to the development of information and communication technologies, it is difficult to handle the billions of connected machines. In this paper, to cope with the problem, we introduce machine social networks, where they freely follow each other and share common interests with their neighbors. We classify characteristics and describe required functionalities of socially connected machines. We also illustrate two examples; a twitbot and maze machines.
