Techopedia Explains JSON-LD

The essential role of JSON-LD is allowing networked information sets to move beyond the ordered pair system that was conventional before linked data played a role. By allowing these information networks to accumulate additional link data from hyperlinks, JSON-LD enhances what users are able to do in data collection, without enforcing a lot of proprietary syntax or forcing developers into a particular format.
