The "semantic Web" is hugely important to tomorrow's business. Do not underestimate its significance: It truly changes everything. Embrace it, or risk extinction. But what is it? And what does it mean for your business?

Here are a few things that caught my attention:
Yes it's the latest buzzword, but let's take a look beyond that..........
It marks the transition into a new phase of the Web where we stop searching and start finding
we discover not just the information that matches the keywords we search for, but the information that we really wanted to find. Information directly related in context, not just in keywords.
New Products; New Services
The semantic Web is far more open, transparent and personalized.
It’s being transformed into a place where the same content means different things to different people
The Answer Lies in Hyperconnectivity
In order for us to become smarter, we somehow need to understand the meaning of information.
To do that we need to be able to forge connections in all this data, to see how each piece of knowledge relates to every other
In the semantic Web, we users provide the connections, through our social media activity.
The patterns that emerge, the sentiment in the interactions—comments, shares, tweets, Likes, etc.—allow a very precise, detailed picture to emerge.
The Bottom Line
The semantic Web is accelerating change across the board, challenging companies that move too slowly to adapt. Embrace it, or risk extinction.
The old rules no longer apply. If you want to be found, social is no longer an option.
