  • People's personal social networks are big and cluttered, and currently there is no good way to automatically organize them. [...] Key Method We develop a model for detecting circles that combines network structure as well as user profile information. For each circle, we learn its members and the circle-specific user profile similarity metric. Modeling node membership to multiple circles allows us to detect overlapping as well as hierarchically nested circles. Experiments show that our model accurately…Expand Abstract
