% &dea o$ the work and main contributions o$ the 'a'er
In this paper it is described how we can build connection between any two different web sites
and how we can reuse the data which is already developed by one's site.
This paper has elegantly explained the details with well illustrated example like WordPress
Import Tool.

Dan Brickely who created vocabulary for F!F and he gave some valuable suggestions for
this paper. "an #rickely has announced that rather than using F!F we should move to
schema.org$%& .
% Pros and (ons o$ the *+A* and S&+()
Pros)
From the user's point of view' user does not need to sign up at each site if a site
supported F!F.
(I) helps to make a website to machine readable format.
(ons)
F!F is now out dated and it is replaced with newer technology like !uth*.
If one has many accounts linked to an account and in case' main account is hacked by
someone' hacker can easily find a way to access the other linked accounts. (o we
have to improve the security.
(I) is not adopted by many developers.
(I) has many properties which have already covered by other ontology. (o
duplication can be an issue while using (I).
% Technical issues success$ully addressed by this 'a'er
+ow to generate a common connection between two websites so that they can able to
read each other's content ,
-very website manages their data in their machine readable form. (o due to different
vocabulary in each websites' content in the one website can't be understandable by
other website. (o we have to build common vocabulary for both websites which can
be done by using F!F and (I).
ne issue for building connection between two web content is that we have to make a
common or uni.ue identity for both web sites' so that while reusing the data we are
able to know whose data we are accessing. /ogin is the only way for users to express
their identity to the websites' so if common login id is created for both the websites' it
can be easy to port the data of that user.
Issue of common login is solved by F!F pro0ect. In F!F we have 1owl2same!s1
property' by using 1owl2same!s1 property we can merge many social accounts into
F!F profile. This F!F profile can be used for login authentication in websites that
support penI" or other F!F derivatives.
If we do not explicitly mention 1owl2same!s1 relation' W/ offers us an 1Inverse
function1 property which enables comparison between two values of 3"F
descriptions. !s an example if two F!F profiles has same foaf2mbox4sha%sum or
foaf2openid ' they can be identified uni.uely as same person' although they have used
as different screen name5username while registration.
F!F profile have also 1foaf2knows1 property and other property which describe
personal information about that user. (o while importing or reusing data to other
website if an user gives access to this information' website which is reusing the
content can easily parse F!F profile information and convert that into their format.
+ow we can export data from any )6( 7)ontent 6anagement (ystem8' 6ailing /ist
or (ocial 6edia as 3"F using (I) ,
!fter creating a common platform' how can we be able to import semantic data to our
site

While sites provide data portability' the authors asserted that the sites should also
provide to the users the ownership of their personal information including the activity
stream of content they create.
% Su''lement your Write,u' using additional readings#
#ecause this paper was very out dated we have read some papers in which this paper is
referenced.
ne of the paper was about 1"ata republishing on the social (emantic Web1. In this paper the
issue discussed was regarding data republishing on social media such as share a post' tumblr
share and re9tweet a tweet. While republishing the data the semantic metadata is lost. In this
paper they discussed about new republishing tool for data republishing for the social web
which would retain machine understanding by retaining the corresponding semantic data of
the post or article. "iscussed in the paper are two methods one copy by value and other copy
by reference where the article is de9referenced and then shown at the referenced location.
!ny change in the original content will reflect in the referenced page.
!nother paper 1-ntity9)entric (ocial Profile Integration1 represents an example of network
profile integration based on F!F ontology and relying on the -ntity :ame (ystem for the
identification. This paper also briefly represents an existing web application supporting user
in creating automatically integrable social network profile.
