There are many online communities with member-generated and openly available multimedia content. Their success depends on having active contributing users and on producing useful content. With this criterion, the community of sound practitioners that has emerged in Freesound is a successful case of interest to be studied. But to understand it and support it further we need an appropriate analysis methodology. In this paper we propose some qualitative and quantitative approaches for its…

A case study of contributor behavior in Q&A site and tags: the importance of prominent profiles in community productivity
TLDR
Nine behavioral profiles that group users according to the quality and quantity of their contributions are unveiled that enhance the overall understanding of how Q&A sites work and knowing these profiles can support the site’s management.
Contributor profiles, their dynamics, and their importance in five q&a sites
TLDR
This paper advances present knowledge about Q&A sites using a multifaceted view of contributors that accounts for diversity of behavior, motivation and expertise to characterize their profiles in five sites, resulting in the definition of ten behavioral profiles that group users according to the quality and quantity of their contributions.
Tag Recommendation using Folksonomy Information for Online Sound Sharing Platforms
TLDR
A new perspective for tag recommendation is explored which, besides taking advantage of information from the folksonomy, employs a sound-specific ontology to guide users during the annotation process, and can be easily generalised and thus be of use to other information sharing platforms.
Harvesting and Structuring Social Data in Music Information Retrieval
TLDR
This work proposes a methodology that combines Social Media Mining, Knowledge Extraction and Natural Language Processing techniques, to extract meaningful context information from social data and aims to improve retrieval, discovery and annotation of music and sound resources.
Freesound technical demo
TLDR
This demo wants to introduce Freesound to the multimedia community and show its potential as a research resource.
Collaborative Music-Making with Interactive Tabletops
Few IT-systems focus on collaboration in electronic music-making, despite evidence that musical engagement is embedded deeply into socio-cultural and collaborative constructs. Hence, certain
1 Sound and Music Recommendation with Knowledge Graphs
TLDR
This work describes how to create and exploit a knowledge graph to supply a hybrid recommendation engine with information that builds on top of a collections of documents describing musical and sound items and shows how the semantic expansion of the initial descriptions helps in achieving much better recommendation quality in terms of aggregated diversity and novelty.

Improving the description of instrumental sounds by using ontologies and automatic content analysis
TLDR
A methodology to build a sound collection by using a proposed ontology of tags and the content analysis of its sounds is defined, providing the possibility of automatically describing eventual new sounds to be integrated within the collection.
Music Information ReSearch
TLDR
This book was typeset using the L A T E X3 typesetting system on distributed GNU/Linux platforms and based on the templates created for the Roadmap for Sound and Music Computing of the S2S 2 Consortium.

Toward a Community-Oriented Design of Internet Platforms
TLDR
This paper identifies community modules and proposes a typology of on-line communities and their community-supporting platforms to determine what kind of services will enable, stimulate, and foster community building.
A life-cycle perspective on online community success
TLDR
This work reviews online communities research and proposes a sequence for incorporating success conditions during initiation and development to increase their chances of becoming a successful community, one in which members participate actively and develop lasting relationships.
An electronic group is virtually a social network.
TLDR
This paper is dedicated to Philip J. Stone III, who first put me online in 1965, and to the stimulating ongoing comments of other members of the research group studying computer supported social networks.
Technology and Community Behavior in Online Environments
The literature on virtual or online communities contains two largely disjoint bodies of scholarship. One, which we call the “communities” literature, is concerned primarily with the social and
A Typology of Virtual Communities: A Multi-Disciplinary Foundation for Future Research
TLDR
The central objective of developing this typology was to develop a classification system that would be useful to researchers from various disciplinary perspectives such that the classification system might be used as a foundation for theory construction.
Small world networks and creativity in audio clip sharing
TLDR
The notion of creativity as an objective for this kind of community is proposed, and how some indicators of creativity can be extracted from user activities in these systems are proposed.

TLDR
This study analyzes the Java Forum, a large online help-seeking community, using social network analysis methods and tests a set of network-based ranking algorithms on this large size social network in order to identify users with high expertise.

TLDR
This paper describes the application of several network analysis techniques to the networks of users in audio clip sharing sites, and the analysis of the community structure of the semantic network using modularity optimization appears to be a good way to identify the different themes in the site.
