FOAF

Status: Past project

Project Description:
The FOAF (Friend of a Friend) vocabulary has become one of the most used semantic web ontologies and can be found in millions of RDF documents on the web. FOAF is used to describe basic attributes of people and relationships among them. We have been studying how FOAF is used on the web as part of a larger effort.
