Abstract

Information sharing forms a large component of the Social Web as web users become citizens within the web sphere. Within ‘walled garden’ services they interact socially with their peers through blog posts, image sharing and writing on one another’s ‘walls’. Porting this data for reuse opens up the social graph associated with the user. In this paper we present work to export Semantic information from the social networking site Facebook using the FOAF ontology by mashing up several Web 2.0 services. We explain the details of our approach and how it supports the data portability movement.
