As Web 2.0 and social network service become sophisticated, knowledge generation and sharing activity become diversified. Especially, the contents that individuals have generated on SNC are informal and unofficial, but they provide the value as the information that can be provided just in time. Therefore, this study suggests the social activity-based contents metadata model (SACoM) for explaining and managing interactive activity elements generated on SNC and contents type that is changeable in real time. The SACoM model consists of interaction type and contents type expansion based on IEEE LOM. For the interaction type, the SNC activity element is added to the existing interactive element, and the contents type is subdivided into the real-time changeable type for expressing the real-time interaction activities and the fixed type for expressing the existing contents.
