    • Semantics
    • Social Semantic Web
    • Two-way street: semantic web can help social web, vice versa • Can Use semantic web to describe people, content objects and the connections that bind them all together so that social sites can interoperate via semantics • In the other direction, object-centered social websites can serve as rich social data sources for semantic applications image from tinyurl.com/highway2
    • Foaf (friend of a friend)
    • What's foaf? • An ontology for describing people and the relationships that exist between them: – foaf-project.org – Identity, personal profiles, social networks – Can integrate with other SW vocabularies – Used on LiveJournal, MyOpera, identi.ca, MyBlogLog, hi5, Fotothing, Videntity, FriendFeed, Ecademy, Typepad image from tinyurl.com/friendship2
    • Distributed identities with FOAF Image by sheila kinsella

    • SIOC, pronounced shock image from tinyurl.com/siocshock
    • Semantically-Interlinked Online Communities (SIOC) • Goal of the SIOC ontology is to address interoperability issues on the Social Web • sioc-project.org • SIOC has been adopted in a framework of 60 applications or modules deployed on hundreds of sites • Web 2.0, enterprise information integration, HCLS, e-government
    • Some of the SIOC core ontology classes and properties
    • From last October 39
    • RDFA (Sioc, FOAF) in drupal 7 • Drupal is a cms used by various sites: – whitehouse.gov, warnerbrosrecords.com, uk.sun.com, motogp.com... • Five Alpha versions of drupal 7 released already, semantic web support built-in – Release candidate version on its way image from tinyurl.com/drupaper
    • Rdfa on newsweek.com
    • Semantic search
    • Opo (Online presence ontology) • aims to unify presence information and status notification processes across different services: – Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare, etc. • Help solve the information overload issue at the same time, by providing a means to identify who / which community the information should reach: sharing spaces
    • MOAT (meaning of a tag) • moat-project.org • A model to define "meanings" of tags – SPARQL → dbpedia.org/resource/SPARQL • User-driven interlinking • Tagged content enters Linked Data web • Collaborative approach towards the sharing of meanings in a community image from tinyurl.com/whichapple
    • An ontology stack for the social semantic web
    • Distributed Architecture (Smob)
    • Semantic #hashtags
    • Stuff that looks exciting image from tinyurl.com/fireflames
    • Diaspora effort nyti.ms/aDYjKQ and joindiaspora.com
    • Appleseed project
    • OneSocialWeb
    • Openid connect "an Interoperable identity interchange protocol for the social web [...] all the technology is on the verge of being ready"
    • Facebook open graph • Allows metadata from external pages to be embedded (claimed) within facebook • E.g. metadata about a restaurant (name, location, contacts) could be imported into a facebook news feed via a like button • Good for facebook, good for the semantic web? Yes!
    • OGP in RDF (FOAF, DC, SIOC, GR)
    • Twitter Annotations • forthcoming initiative by Twitter: – attach arbitrary metadata to any tweet – overall limit for the metadata payload – May be able to attach RDF-type statements • Going beyond annotating tweets with geotemporal information: – new types of / properties for tweets image from tinyurl.com/twannotation
