This paper presents two ways to extract metadata from Facebook’s multimedia content, such as photos and videos, as descriptors of Ontology For Media Resources. We develop an ontology to map metadata in Facebook’s multimedia content to the descriptors of Ontology For Media Resources and we develop a SPARQL endpoint that enables reasoning over Facebook multimedia content using Ontology For Media Resources.
