Yeah we've finally transitioned to JSON-LD. This was not really an issue until we found out that ... Microdata was impacting on the size of the pages and we could bring a value to our users (we've seen in some cases the page size going down by 40+ % when replacing Microdata with JSON-LD). Google of course does prefer JSON-LD but it's not discriminating at the moment and encourages, in any case, mix-and-match between various formats.

+Tony Camero and the +SEO Design Framework team were among the first to ask for this change. 
Linked Data connects information from different sources just like a dictionary helps people that speak different languages understanding each other.🔗📒
For a UX Designer, JSON-LD is just like a thread that sews together all the different parts of a bespoken suit that fits the body perfectly.👔

After reading +Bruce Smith's blogpost about Overlaid Personal Semantic Networks, there has been some buzz here at WordLift’s, since lots of concepts and ideas stated in the post are the very same principles that led us to our plugin. WordLift’s intent of organising content into the Wikipedia of one’s sector is very similar to what Bruce describes in his blogpost.

WordLift uses two open source frameworks for natural language processing (Apache Stanbol) and linked data publishing (Apache Marmotta) - the codebase of the plugin is also open source and available on GitHub under GPL license. As for OPSN we believe intelligent networks shall be built on open source technologies. From the plugin point of view this also means we’re no locking users within our stack of technologies. As already stated by +Gideon Rosenblatt all data created with WordLift belongs to the user - the knowledge graph each user creates is published in RDF/XML format and can be instantly downloaded.

WordLift uses existing graphs such as DBpedia to suggest the content structure of websites - but as, in the idea of Overlaid Personal Semantic Networks, WordLift allows everyone to create “linked” datasets to share everyone’s personal opinion on a topic. These topics are published as web-pages for humans and as linked data for machines. Each topic (or entity as we call it) is interlinked (for machines) with the equivalent concept (when already available) in Wikipedia via sameAs links to DBpedia or Wikidata.

Finally, returning to +Gideon Rosenblatt comment about the amount of work required in the initial phase of using the product, we are already following a path that leads to a series of solutions to speed the process up (like the seeding of a starting vocabulary from original content) - from the technology point of view WordLift allows the sharing of any open dataset (including the vocabulary each user creates or freely available linked data resources). Yes - the OPSN idea resonates quite well with the work that we’ve done so far on the product.
