Mashup development is currently powered by Web sites, as ProgrammableWeb and Mashape, that offer large, continuously updated and growing, catalogues of software components accessible through Web APIs. Developing Web mashup is becoming attracting for developing Web and enterprise applications, but it requires specialized knowledge about Web APIs, their technologies and the way to combine them. In this paper, firstly we discuss how social-based semantic approaches can support the phases of mashup development. Then, we describe our framework LINKSMAN (LINKed data Supported MAshup collaboratioN) for expert search in enterprise mashup development based on integrating knowledge both internal and external to enterprises.
