Internet of Things has achieved a great expectation in the last few years, largely due to possibilities in the field of the interaction between user and environment. This interaction allows users to get involved in their environments, managing at all times each item that surrounds them. Specially, because of complex services delivered by surrounding item, increasingly it is necessary to help users to choose what services are offered and what are theirs functionalities. Is this paper, is presented a new approach to the human-items interaction by using the concept of Internet of Things. In this way, the user can not only run the different applications offers by smart-things, but to share theirs results through many social networks and allows the remote execution of services provided by the own user and his/her social environment. Furthermore, a structure will be defined to assure the best user comfort when information sharing between the device and the environments was needed.
