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

  • 31. Some of the SIOC core ontology classes and properties
  • 32. Some applications using sioc

  • 39. 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

  • 45. OGP in RDF (FOAF, DC, SIOC, GR)
  • 46. 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 geotemporal annotations: – "type":{"attribute":"value"} – "movie":{"title":"avatar"} image from tinyurl.com/twannotation
