Communities(SIOC)


The SIOC initiative aims to enable the integration of online
community information. [pronounce as shock]



SIOC provides a Semantic Web ontology for representing rich data
from the Social Web in RDF.



It has recently achieved significant adoption through its usage in a
variety of commercial and open
-
source software applications, and
is commonly used in conjunction with the FOAF vocabulary for
expressing personal profile and social networking information.



By becoming a standard way for expressing user
-
generated content
from such sites, SIOC enables new kinds of usage scenarios for
online community site data, and allows innovative semantic
applications to be built on top of the existing Social Web.

SIOC Ontology


Online community sites (weblogs, message boards, wikis, etc.) have
replaced the traditional means of keeping a community informed
via libraries and publishing.



problem:


online community sites are like islands without bridges connecting
them



Semantically
-
Interlinked Online Communities (SIOC), is an attempt
to link online community sites, to use Semantic Web technologies
to describe the information that communities have about their
structure and contents, and to find related information and new
connections between content items and other community objects.
