CommunityNetSimulator: Using Simulations to Study Online Community Networks

  title={CommunityNetSimulator: Using Simulations to Study Online Community Networks},
  author={Jun Zhang and Mark S. Ackerman and Lada A. Adamic},
Research is proceeding to design new systems and algorithms for online communities, by taking into account their social network characteristics. However, differing network structures and dynamics will affect possible algorithms that attempt to make use of these networks. We lack an understanding of these impacts. In this paper, we present the CommunityNetSimulator (CNS), a simulator that enables the exploration of various network models with social network analysis techniques that are of… CONTINUE READING
