1. A system to automatically provide differing levels of information according to a predetermined social hierarchy, the system comprising:

  • a communication device comprising a sensor set which detects sensor data comprising a first detected sensor value comprising an amount of light of the environment of the communication device from an optical sensor and a second detected sensor value comprising a sound level of the environment of the communication device from an acoustic sensor, and transmits the sensor data;

    a memory which stores social templates, each social template corresponding to a unique social signature comprising a first sensor value range and a second sensor value range other than the first sensor value range and each social template being selectable to provide, for each level of the predetermined social hierarchy, a corresponding differing amount of information to each member of the predetermined social hierarchy; and

    a server comprising a processor which receives the sensor data from the communication device, creates a detected social signature from the received sensor data, determines which of the social signatures of the stored social templates has a greatest correspondence with the created social signature through comparison of the first and second detected sensor values and the first and second sensor value ranges of each stored social template, retrieves from the memory the determined one social template having the greatest correspondence and having the detected amount of light within the first sensor value range and the detected sound level within the second sensor value range, and provides to at least one member of the predetermined social hierarchy only as much information as allowed based on the retrieved social template.
