Much research pursues machine intelligence through better representation of semantics.  What is semantics? People in different areas view semantics from different facets although it has been helping humans communicate with each other through civilization.  Some researchers believe that human has some innate structures in mind to understand each other, and the gene of the species determines the structure. Then, what is the structure?  Some researchers argue that human constructs the structure through constant learning. Then, how the process is like? This paper concerns these issues in the context of establishing the interactive semantics in the future cyber-society.  Research starts from distinguishing social semantics from natural semantics, and then studies the interactive semantics in the category of social semantics. The key viewpoints include (1) semantics cannot be accurately represented but it can be indicated, explained to a certain extent, and the indication and explanation of semantics can be refined through interaction.; (2) semantics is generated, complemented, and evolves during interaction in a certain situations; and, (3) semantics is an open and self-organized interactive system. The interactive semantic base is proposed as the interaction basis in cyber-society. The semantic lens is proposed to observe semantics from different facets, abstraction levels and times.
