The advent of the Internet and World Wide Web has led to unprecedent growth of the information available. People usually face the information overload by following a limited number of sources which best fit their interests. It has thus become important to address issues like who gets followed and how to allow people to discover new and better information sources. In this paper we conduct an empirical analysis of different online social networking sites and draw inspiration from its results to… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Recommendation of Leaders in Online Social Systems
TLDR
The simulation results on real networks show that the proposed leader recommendation method can accurately recommend the potential leaders and further investigation on recommendation diversity indicates that the recommendation method is very personalized.
Optimizing Online Social Networks for Information Propagation
TLDR
This paper designs a new similarity measure which takes into account users' activity frequencies and finds that previous social recommendation methods lead to serious delay of information propagation since many users are connected to inactive leaders.
Adaptive social recommendation in a multiple category landscape
TLDR
This work introduces a more realistic assumption that users’ tastes are modeled by multiple vectors, and designs novel measures of users�’ taste similarity that can substantially improve the precision of the recommender system.
The Role of Taste Affinity in Agent-Based Models for Social Recommendation
TLDR
An adaptive model of a social network where directed links connect users with similar tastes, and over which information propagates through social recommendation is studied, suggesting that users differing in their scope of interests is a more realistic assumption than users differing only in their particular interests.
Uncovering heterogeneous interactions in online commercial networks
TLDR
A novel approach to construct a signed unipartite network with heterogeneous interactions (i.e. positive or negative) between users from the original bipartiteNetwork is proposed, which reveals a phase transition phenomenon.
Influence of Reciprocal Links in Social Networks
TLDR
This work empirically study the influence of reciprocal links in two representative real datasets, Sina Weibo and Douban, and demonstrates that the reciprocal links play a more important role than non-reciprocal ones in information diffusion process.
A continuous rating model for news recommendation
TLDR
A new continuous ratings model for news recommendations that uses exponential distance to measure the similarities of users to increase its robustness to noise and has significantly improved the performance of personalized news recommendation.
Identifying a set of influential spreaders in complex networks
TLDR
VoteRank is presented, a simply yet effectively iterative method named VoteRank to identify a set of decentralized spreaders with the best spreading ability, and experimental results show that under Susceptible-Infected-Recovered (SIR) and Susceptibles Infected (SI) models, VoteRank outperforms the traditional benchmark methods on both spreading rate and final affected scale.
Spreading predictability in complex networks
TLDR
In this paper, a probability based prediction model is presented so as to estimate the infection nodes from a snapshot of spreading so that the model proposed could predict the infection node precisely in the sense of probability.

Emergence of Scale-Free Leadership Structure in Social Recommender Systems
TLDR
Empirical analysis of networks extracted from four leading sites with social functionality and shows that they all display a scale-free leadership structure for an adaptive network model driven by social recommending, highlighting a “good get richer” mechanism.
Heterogeneity, quality, and reputation in an adaptive recommendation model
TLDR
It is shown that incorporating user reputation in the recommendation process can substantially improve the outcome and improve the filtering efficiency and robustness against malicious and spamming behaviour.
Social Network Data and Practices: The Case of Friendfeed
TLDR
First analysis of Friendfeed, a well-known and feature-rich SNS, is provided to provide a first analysis of the social network for sociological research.
Small world yields the most effective information spreading
TLDR
This paper proposes a model to emphasize the essential difference between information spreading and epidemic spreading, where the memory effects, the social reinforcement and the non-redundancy of contacts are taken into account and shows that the spreading effectiveness can be sharply enhanced by introducing a little randomness into the regular structure, namely the small-world networks yield the most effective information spreading.
Bipartite network projection and personal recommendation.
TLDR
This work provides a creditable method for compressing bipartite networks, and highlights a possible way for the better solution of a long-standing challenge in modern information science: How to do a personal recommendation.
The dynamics of viral marketing
TLDR
While on average recommendations are not very effective at inducing purchases and do not spread very far, this work presents a model that successfully identifies communities, product, and pricing categories for which viral marketing seems to be very effective.
Social Network Analysis
This paper reports on the development of social network analysis, tracing its origins in classical sociology and its more recent formulation in social scientific and mathematical work. It is argued
Adaptive model for recommendation of news
TLDR
An adaptive model which combines similarities in users' rating patterns with epidemic-like spreading of news on an evolving network is proposed and provides a general social mechanism for recommender systems and may find its applications also in other types of recommendation.
Solving the apparent diversity-accuracy dilemma of recommender systems
TLDR
This paper introduces a new algorithm specifically to address the challenge of diversity and shows how it can be used to resolve this apparent dilemma when combined in an elegant hybrid with an accuracy-focused algorithm.
