Finished the graph for my Social Connections this weekend, so far Facebook is the only data point. See my link to the dashboard here. Took much longer than I anticipated as I had to change SPARQL endpoints a few times to get what I wanted. A few of the SPARQL endpoints out there have limited or no support for BIND commands, and/or no support for SPARQL INSERT/UPDATE commands. I’m now using Jena’s SPARQL endpoint. Eventually I’ll expose the endpoint to the web if anyone is interested in the raw data. Right now it’s firewalled.
Now that I have the social interactions proof of concept complete, I will move to getting more interesting data out of Facebook and my other social networks. And then, of course, since I’m graphing them over time, it will take a bit to get the historical data to make it interesting.
EasyRDF has also been a great help, and I’m hoping the author continues to develop the library.
