What is FOAF metadata?


FOAF stands for Friend Of A Friend. FOAF metadata is a special subcategory of RDF metadata used heavily by bloggers. It is used to map out a social network among Web sites and generally make the Web a more human-friendly place. Most (although not all) blog-focused ISP Web hosting packages offer decent FOAF support as a standard ISP service. FOAF support will vary from non-blog-focused ISP provider to provider. By its nature it is really mostly useful for personal home pages.
