In this paper we deal with personalized navigation in an open information space in order to support effective orientation in increasing amount of information accessible through the web. We present a method for personalized navigation based on social navigation where information space is represented by an ontology. We discuss potential contributions of using the ontology representation for the navigation in open information spaces and for the navigational ability to deal with frequent change of the information contents.
