The technology of web 2.0 especially social networking has changed people's behavior, attitudes, interactions, and relationships. User activities on social networking sites have created both explicit and implicit relationship. The relations can be distinguished for the sites with symmetric and asymmetric relationship types. In this paper, we propose a framework for semantic social network analysis for recommending user member groups on social media sites that combines explicit and implicit relationship. The framework utilizes semantic technology, i.e. ontology and RDF, to integrate the resulted data from different sites. Moreover, a presentation of a ontology design for user and activities referring to social network sites. An example of the integrated user profile is demonstrated using FOAF vocabulary.
