Personal connections have great influences on various social activities, e.g., a business negotiation. However, data of personal connections are usually diverse, dynamic and ill-formed. In this paper, we firstly propose a model and representation for personal connections, then describe the framework to deal with ill-formed information. We discuss some key criteria on developing a common exploitation environment integrated with an adaptable data-base and user interface to support group decision. Finally, we give illustrations to show that the developed environment is effective and useful.
