Content Introduction Semantic Web + Social Web Semantic Web Social Applications Using Semantic Web social data Social Networking & Communities Role of Linked Data Issues with social data
Social Web Object centered connection Closed network and data silos Social network fatigue Isolated communities of user and data Connectivity and portability between different networks?
Semantic Web + Social Web Use semantics to describe resources (URIs, RDFa) Ontologies to describe concepts (FOAF, SIOC, OPO) Share resources across platform and networks Interlinking of data Search and query
Semantic Web Social Applications Semantic Tagging Semantic Microblogging Facebook Open Graph Semantic Wikis
Using Semantic Social Data Distributed and decentralized Social Web Interoperability and data portability Social network analysis Enhanced recommendation and data visualization Can we quickly create a community according to need or interest or find experts?
Medium of Communication Personal Network (Facebook, Myspace) Professional Network (LinkedIn, Yammer) Media Sharing (Flickr, YouTube) Blogging and Microblogging (Twitter, Wordpress) Collective Knowledge (Wikipedia, Stackoverflow) Communication (IRC, Online Chat, Skype) Others (Message boards, forums, mailing list, etc)
Why form communities? Information exchange and self interest Symbiotic relation and social exchange Recommender system Expert finder Other Incentives (social recognition, personal satisfaction)
Types of Community Information based Interest based Location based Expert based
