The Semantic Web is a use of the WWW for a web of data.

The SemanticWebCerealBox analogy may help you understand it.

There is a lot of debate about what the term "Semantic Web" means.

Some of the major definitions:

little-s semantic web 
The developing web of data and protocols, presently growing on the Internet.
Big-S Semantic Web 
The SemanticWebArchitecture coming out of W3C Semantic Web Activity.

On this wiki, we mostly talk about what is called "Big-S Semantic Web"- data formats such as RDF and OWL that are being defined by the W3C.

The Semantic Web is characterized by the use of Graphs and NetworkedData.
