The Open Graph protocol enables any web page to become a rich object in a social graph. For instance, this is used on Facebook to enable any web page to have the same functionality as a Facebook Page.

While many different technologies and schemas exist and could be combined together, there isn't a single technology which provides enough information to richly represent any web page within the social graph. The Open Graph protocol builds on these existing technologies and gives developers one thing to implement. Developer simplicity is a key goal of the Open Graph protocol which has informed many of the technical design decisions.

In short, the Semantic Web is about more "meaningful" content. We've perfected the art of scanning text and creating massive distributed indexes that produce highly relevant search results, but when you type in "Swine Flu" you are really still dealing with an inefficient indexing approach that doesn't know about the meaning of the text being parsed and indexed. Moving toward the Semantic Web will allow our searching technologies to become more intelligent and will set the stage for the next revolution in which computing systems can become more aware of the "meaningfulness of data".
