Organizing users’ friends in personal social networks, i.e., ego networks, into circles is an important task for online social networks. Social networking sites allow users to manually categorize their friends into social circles. However, it is time consuming and does not update automatically as a user adds more friends. In this paper, we propose an edge-based clustering algorithm to detect social circles in ego networks automatically. Firstly, we reconstruct ego networks by predicting the… CONTINUE READING
