In this paper, the authors have deployed a Social Web Graph over a Semantic Web Framework. A social web graph is a collection of nodes, connected via directed edges. A graph simplifies the search by reducing the sample space by half after every node. But this is a keyword based search and is not rather intelligent. On the other hand a Semantic web framework organizes information in triples in addition to having the benefits of a graph. This makes the information more understandable and easily accessible.
