Does Facebook Really Want a Semantic Web? [ReadWriteWeb]

Maybe it’s all part of a subtle personal privacy protection policy…

As you will see from the rest of the post, it appears that getting semantics right has not been a big priority for Facebook, at least not prior to the announcement. Here are the issues we identify:

  1. Open Graph Protocol does not support object disambiguation
  2. Open Graph Protocol does not support multiple objects on the page
  3. Launch partners have not implemented Open Graph Protocol correctly on their sites
  4. Facebook does not have the markup on its own pages that it asks the world to adopt
  5. A growing amount of user profile data is full of duplicates and ambiguity
