Using Qtag to Extract Dominant Public Opinion in Very Large-Scale Conversation
TLDR
Qtag is proposed to improve the VLSC environment by extracting public opinion easily, enhancing the value of conversation, and increasing the participants’ willingness to engage. Expand
Browsing newsgroups with a social network analyzer
TLDR
This paper reports in this paper the experience in designing a newsgroup browser based on ideas from social network analysis, and its analyzer identifies reciprocal sub-groups in newsgroup discussions, and utilizes visual methods to help users look for leading authors and provocative articles.

ContactMap: Organizing communication in a social desktop
TLDR
An empirical evaluation of ContactMap is conducted, comparing it with traditional email systems, on tasks suggested by the fieldwork and finding that users performed better with ContactMap and preferred ContactMap for the majority of these tasks. Expand
A hybrid approach to Web forum interactional coherence analysis
TLDR
Experiments revealed that the proposed Hybrid Interactional Coherence algorithm significantly outperformed comparison techniques in terms of precision, recall, and F-measure at both the forum and thread levels. Expand
ConVisIT: Interactive Topic Modeling for Exploring Asynchronous Online Conversations
TLDR
A novel topic modeling system for asynchronous conversations that revises the model on the fly based on user's feedback is proposed that combines interactive visualization techniques to support the user in exploring long conversations, as well as revising the topic model when the current results are not adequate to fulfill her information needs.

TLDR
A social network approach to online language variation and change is developed through qualitative and quantitative analysis of log files of Internet Relay Chat interaction, which reveals a highly structured relationship between participants' social positions on a channel and the linguistic variants they use.
