Abstract: As in many social networks or social-oriented applications, the basic services of the SmartCampus project are enhanced by the flow of information produced by the sharing of media, the following/friending others and finally the tagging and commenting. This talk introduces the SmartCampus’ Social Engine that uses a semantics-enhanced approach to capture this flow of information and to introduce a novelty feature called “Interest Following”that allows receiving notifications not only from other users but also from places, institutions or even defined topics.
