Abstract. Despite their success in general applications, social networks also present a series of challenges like attracting user signups, keeping a healthy contribution level, user privacy concerns, etc. This paper introduces the Social Core – a social network engine that adds semantic-based functionalities like semantic annotations, semantic search and semantic-enhanced access control; as a way to enhance and answer to the current challenges of social applications. The Social Core was integrated as part of the SmartCampus mobile platform, which is currently being live tested by around one hundred students.
