Uldis Bojars, Alexandre Passant, John Breslin, Stefan Decker "Social Networks and Data Portability using Semantic Web technologies", 2nd Workshop on Social Aspects of the Web (SAW 2008), in conjunction with 11th International Conference on Business Information Systems (BIS 2008), 2008.
Social network and data portability has recently gained a lot of interest as one of the issues for social media sites on the Web. In this paper, we will show how Semantic Web technologies and especially the FOAF and SIOC vocabularies can be used to model user information and user-generated content in a machine-readable way. Thus, we will see how data and network information can be reused among various services and applications, at almost zero-cost for developers of such tools.
