By John G. Breslin, Alexandre Passant, Stefan Decker (auth.)

The Social net (including prone reminiscent of MySpace, Flickr,, and WordPress) has captured the eye of thousands of clients in addition to billions of greenbacks in funding and acquisition. Social web pages, evolving round the connections among humans and their gadgets of curiosity, are encountering limitations within the parts of knowledge integration, dissemination, reuse, portability, searchability, automation and significant projects like querying. The Semantic net is a perfect platform for interlinking and appearing operations on different individual- and object-related facts on hand from the Social internet, and has produced numerous methods to beat the bounds being skilled in Social internet program areas.

After a brief evaluation of either the Social internet and the Semantic internet, Breslin et al. describe a few renowned social media and social networking functions, checklist their strengths and boundaries, and describe a few functions of Semantic internet expertise to deal with their present shortcomings through improving them with semantics. throughout those social web content, they show a twofold method for interconnecting the islands which are social web content with semantic applied sciences, and for powering semantic functions with wealthy community-created content material. They finish with observations on how the appliance of Semantic internet applied sciences to the Social net is major in the direction of the "Social Semantic net" (sometimes often known as "Web 3.0"), forming a community of interlinked and semantically-rich content material and knowledge.

The booklet is meant for laptop technological know-how pros, researchers, and graduates drawn to realizing the applied sciences and examine matters focused on using Semantic net applied sciences to social software program. Practitioners and builders drawn to purposes resembling blogs, social networks or wikis also will find out about tools for expanding the degrees of automation in those varieties of net communication.
