    • Social Network Portability: Is the Semantic Web Ready? ESWC2008 Panel Alexandre Passant - http://apassant.net LaLIC, Université Paris-Sorbonne
    • Technology is there • Ontologies for social networks and data portability • FOAF and SIOC • Both are lightweight vocabularies that can be used easily for developers, transparently by end-users • FOAF • People, identity properties, social networks • SIOC • User account, social media contributions, actions
    • FOAF + SIOC = Semantics for Data Portability By John Breslin
    • Applications are there • Producing data • Exporters for major social software platforms (WordPress, Drupal ...), “legacy” data (IRC, Mailing Lists ...) and Web 2.0 services (twitter, flickr ...) • Most important: Consuming data • Revyu, foafmap, FOAFGear, SparqlPress, xOperator ... • SIOC browsers, WP importer, Sindice Widget ... • Still need a killer app ?
    • Integrating distributed social networks • FOAFGear - http://apassant.net/home/2008/01/foafgear
    • Semantic-Web microblogging • SMOB - http://smob.sioc-project.org
    • But ... • Data privacy and term of services • We are experimenting on real users, do not break (too many) rules • Identity fragmentation • Some people explicitly use various social websites to fragment their identity, networks and related data. IFP- based reasoning breaks this by unifying one’s triples • We must take care of this and find solutions • Or users will see the Semantic Web as Big Brother and most efforts in this field will be lost
