The Resource Description Framework (RDF) provides means to structure knowledge in the form of small Triple facts.

RDS belongs to the Information Exchange Layer of the Semantic Web Technology Stack.

In the Information Exchange Layer we can represent knowledge in the same way we can state Facts and communicate about these Facts. Representing a Fact is pretty simple, it is somehow in RDF like in pretty simple sentences in our Natural Language, because every bit of knowledge, every fact consists out of a Subject (what it refers to), a Property (which means the Subject has a specific Property) and an Objects (which means the Property has a specific Value).

So, Subject, Property and Object form a simple fact in RDF.
