With the advent of User Centric network paradigms like IMS2.0 and Web 2.0 the user must be able to describe in an unambiguous way both himself together with the contents he produces, since SOA promotes the emergence of more and more services. The user will be challenged to survive in a wild service ecosystem using the ones that better match his needs. In this paper we present the Matcher network functionality that aims to provide guidance to the user in such an ecosystem service jungle. The Matcher is a framework not only to allow the user and service providers to produce semantically enabled (user, service and content) profiles and match these profiles, but also to obtain useful results using simple tags and semantically enabled tags. The proposed Matcher takes advantage of standardised OMA and IMS enablers notably the eXtensible Document Manager Server (XDMS).
