Following on from my previous post ‘Friend of a Friend, the Semantic Web and Web 3.0‘ , it is worth adding how FoaF may easily be integrated into any Web Page (including Blog Posts in WordPress, Typepad, Drupal or any other platform). One of the challenges of FoaF is it’s simple to have many RDF (FoaF) files but have no single one that is up to date. Kent Brewster provides an excellent and simple means of overcoming this problem as well as integrating Friend of a Friend (FoaF) capability using a third party social networking site (MyBlogLog). His recommendation is summarised below:
- Join MyBlogLog.
- Add the following to the HEAD section of your Web page/s: <link rel=”meta” type=”application/rdf+xml” title=”FOAF” href=”http://www.mybloglog.com/buzz/members/ecksteing/foaf/” /> . Substitute ecksteing with your MyBlogLog Sign In Name.
That’s it! It’s a very good idea to keep your ‘Services’ in the ‘My Account’ section of your MyBlogLog account up to date.
