Semantic web and socio semantic web

techie | June 19 - 2010

Semantic web provides ways for businesses to interoperate across domains the socio semantic web will enable users to share knowledge.At present there are three possible social approaches of user driven ontology evolution for the semantic web.

In the first approach, users could create a folksonomy  with social network analysis. Social network analysis views social relationships in terms of network theory consisting of nodes and ties.  Nodes are actors or human beings and ties are the relationships. The relationships may vary from personal or family relationships or worldwide relationships among the country level also.

Network analytic tools are used to represent the nodes (agents) and edges (relationships) in a network, and to analyze the network data. Like other software tools, the data can be saved in external files. Additional information comparing the various data input formats used by network analysis software packages is available at NetWiki. Network analysis tools allow researchers to investigate large networks like the Internet, disease transmission, etc. These tools provide mathematical functions that can be applied to the network model. Various new methods have been developed in order to display network data in more perceptive format.

This is done with automated parsers the ontology could be extracted from the tags. This ontology could be entered in topic map/TMCL or RDF/OWL ontology store. Now ontologists or ontology engineers could manually analyze the tags and by using this data, they will be able to create more sound ontology. The third approach is to create a system for self governance in which the users could create their own ontology over time in an organic method.

All of these approaches could start out with an empty ontology or be created manually or with an existing ontology. Social Networks Ontology is the most important concept in social web. The web connections approach uses the semantic suitability of the list. This is coupled with a containing root div element to provide a mechanism for doing this. This is conforming with current micro formats patterns. Most significant issue is that how to correctly use the mechanisms for HTML to markup the weight of fonts.

Root elements include the following elements





And are given the following class and/or id values.
