Injecting Facebook Data into the Semantic Data Web

Injecting Facebook Data into the Semantic Data Web

So Facebook will be producing Semantic Web data. I think it is a good initiative. Huge sites like this should start standardizing  their data now by using Semantic Web principles. If big players get involved, the Semantic Web vision may not be too far.

SocioBiblog: Enabling Communication on Bibliography with Semantic Blogging

SocioBiblog: Enabling Communication on Bibliography with Semantic Blogging

Sharing of information about publications is very important in a research community. The paper describes a system which demonstrates how semantic blogging can be used for the purpose. It incorporates SWRC ontology into blogging for entering metadata about publications; facilitates commenting on publications and provides a decentralized aggregation mechanism to aggregate publications in the community. RSS aggregation has been extended to handle metadata in BuRST feeds. The system uses FOAF links of authors and friends to explore the social network of the research community and gather RSS/BuRST feeds.

Ontology of Folksonomy

Ontology of Folksonomy
Ontologies are enabling technology for the Semantic Web. They are a means for people to state what they mean by the terms used in data that they might generate, share, or consume. Folksonomies are an emergent phenomenon of the Social Web. They arise from data about how people associate terms with content that they generate, share, or consume. Recently the two ideas have been put into opposition, as if they were right and left poles of a political spectrum. This is a false dichotomy; they are more like apples and oranges. In fact, as the Semantic Web matures and the Social Web grows, there is increasing value in applying Semantic Web technologies to the data of the Social Web. This article is an attempt to clarify the distinct roles for ontologies and folksonomies, and previews some new work that applies the two ideas together – an ontology of folksonomy.
