Connecting Social Networks and Media through Linked Open Data

Linked Open Data has come to prominence recently as it has been taken up by a number of governments and big Internet and Media players such as Google, Yahoo, Facebook and the BBC to link online resources and data. Within this talk I outline how Linked Open Data could be used as a glue between social networks and network media using a number of Open University projects that are based on this technology. Specifically, we have been using Linked Open Data to analyse social networks, support 'live social semantics' where we combine online information and Linked Data to support real interactions at a conference, support video discovery, support the discovery of learning,resources from semantic markup of BBC broadcast programmes, and support end-user advertising of products shown within online videos.
