Although social sharing websites are currently employing semantic Web techniques to structure the data, these websites still stand in isolation since most of the data is not linked. Therefore, this paper proposes a prototype system called LinksTo that provides users the functionality to link resources from the Web at large. These links are described in RDF (Resource Description Framework) adhering to vocabularies recommended by the linked data best practices. The links described in RDF are transparent to the user.
