An object-oriented model of semantic social networks is proposed and formally analyzed. Methods for project, role, and team management based on the semantic model are defined and implemented in \(\mathfrak{n}\mathfrak{i}\mathbf{K}\mathfrak{l}\mathfrak{a}\mathfrak{s}\), a semantic wiki language based on frame logic developed by the author. The new approach to semantic social networks allows dynamic change of social network semantics and the establishment of the well known fishnet organization in a social network. In the end possible applications to knowledge management are presented.
