Please help to point the way,

All,

There is a burgeoning little community on the web [1] that is getting a
lot of interest and offers from many parties [2]. The community is built
around the very new OpenLike, which is rather important because it could
easily end up being the glue between the social networks and people.

In every way they are crying out for linked data, to the point that they
are even re-inventing many of the main principals themselves.

Out of many, many examples [3] (every thread over the past few days)
here's the latest:

"Whenever you OLike something it adds the URI to the relevant Wikipedia
page" [4]

If you have any time at all, please do help to nudge them in the right
direction, and save the web from yet another workaround instead of a
solution.

Best,

Nathan
