OWL 2-supported Semantic Tagging is a non compulsory yet decisive and highly influential component of a multidisciplinary knowledge architecture framework which synergetically combines the Semantic and the Social Webs. The facility consists of a semantic tagging layer based on OWL 2 axioms and expressions enticing social network users, typically mommy bloggers, to annotate their chaos of textual data with natural language verbalized versions of ontological elements. This paper provides a comprehensive short summary of the overall framework along with its backbone metamodel and its parenting analysis and surveillance ontology ParOnt, laying a particular emphasis on its semantic expression-based tagging feature, and accordingly highlighting the attained gains and improvements in terms of effective results, services and recommendations, all falling in the scope of public parenting orientation and awareness.
