We argue that existing systems to support social computation suffer from a lack of transparency and that this can be addressed by integrating provenance capture mechanisms into such systems. We discuss how Semantic Web technologies can be used to facilitate this, and how the provenance record could be used to support various forms of decision-making about tasks such as workforce selection.
