SIOC alignment proposal
SIOC is a schema for describing social web content (posts, comments, forums, blogs, etc.). The schema has been in development for eight years and is currently used by Drupal 7 along and various other applications/sites to describe forums, blogs, microblogs, etc. We would like to discuss how to align SIOC with schema.org in respect of this Discussion proposal.
- Original mappings between SIOC and schema.org terms in RDFS
- SIOC specification
- W3C member submission for SIOC
- Presentation on current state of SIOC data (April 2012)
- According to the recent CommonCrawl dataset, SIOC terms like UserAccount, Comment and BlogPost are found in the top 20 most commonly-used RDFa types
