Re: looking for a social schema

Due to the open world assumption, the value of that counter would 
(probably) we wrong.

If I have
:Peter foaf:knows :Stephen .
:Peter foaf:knows :Marc .

and, based on that knowledge, I added

:Peter myschema:friendnb "2"^^xsd:integer .

this would not be a valid conclusion - there may be a lot more friends 
of Peter which are not in my knowledge base (don't we all have friends 
without a facebook account?), and :Stephen and :Marc might even refer to 
the same person. In other words, with that approach, I would add 
knowledge to my knowledge base which is potentially wrong.

So I would rather refrain from doing that.

Best,
Heiko.
