Location-based social networks (LBSNs) have become a popular form of social media in recent years. [] Key Method In particular, our model captures the property of user’s check-in history in forms of power-law distribution and short-term effect, and helps in explaining user’s check-in behavior. The experimental results on a real world LBSN demonstrate that our approach properly models user’s checkins and shows how social and historical ties can help location prediction.

TLDR
A social-historical model is proposed to explore user's check-in behavior on KBSNs to study user's social behavior from a spatial-temporal aspect, which enables a variety of services including place advertisement, traffic forecasting, and disaster relief.
Data Analysis on Location-Based Social Networks
TLDR
The background and framework of location-based mobile social networking is introduced, and two illustrative examples to show the application of data mining to real-world location- based social networks are presented.
gSCorr: modeling geo-social correlations for new check-ins on location-based social networks
TLDR
This paper proposes a geo-social correlation model to capture social correlations on LBSNs considering social networks and geographical distance, and demonstrates that this approach properly models the social correlations of a user's new check-ins by considering various correlation strengths and correlation measures.
Next Check-in Location Prediction via Footprints and Friendship on Location-Based Social Networks
TLDR
This paper uses the most frequent check-in model (MFC) and the user-based collaborative filtering model (UCF) to capture users' historical trajectories and users' implicit preference, and uses the multi-social circle model (MSC) to model the influence of three social circles.
Incorporating Spatial, Temporal, and Social Context in Recommendations for Location-Based Social Networks
TLDR
A novel approach to incorporate spatial, temporal, and social context into a traditional collaborative filtering algorithm is introduced, and it is demonstrated that this approach is at the least competitive with existing state-of-the-art location recommenders.
Improving Location Prediction using a Social Historical Model with Strict Recency Context
TLDR
Observing various LBSN user characteristics, the Social Historical Model is improved by exploiting the recency effect and place-links to improve the overall location prediction accuracy of the SHM.
Location-Specific Influence Quantification in Location-Based Social Networks
TLDR
A model to quantify the influence specific to a location between a pair of users is developed called LoCaTe, that combines a user mobility model based on kernel density estimates; a model of the semantics of the location using topic models; and a user correlation model that uses an exponential distribution.
Influence Quantification for Location Promotion in Location-based Social Networks
TLDR
A model to quantify the influence specific to a location between a pair of users is developed called LoCaTe, which significantly outperforms state-of-the-art models for the same task.
Addressing the cold-start problem in location recommendation using geo-social correlations
TLDR
This work proposes to address the cold-start location recommendation problem by capturing the correlations between social networks and geographical distance on LBSNs with a geo- social correlation model, and demonstrates that this approach properly models the geo-social correlations of a user’s cold- Start check-ins and significantly improves the location recommendation performance.
Exploring temporal effects for location recommendation on location-based social networks
TLDR
A novel location recommendation framework is introduced, based on the temporal properties of user movement observed from a real-world LBSN dataset, which exhibits the significance of temporal patterns in explaining user behavior, and demonstrates their power to improve location recommendation performance.

Socio-Spatial Properties of Online Location-Based Social Networks
TLDR
This work presents a comprehensive study of the spatial properties of the social networks arising among users of three main popular online location-based services, and provides evidence that mechanisms akin to gravity models may influence how these social connections are created over space.
Exploring Millions of Footprints in Location Sharing Services
TLDR
It is found that LSS users follow the “Levy Flight” mobility pattern and adopt periodic behaviors; while geographic and economic constraints affect mobility patterns, so does individual social status; and Content and sentiment-based analysis of posts associated with checkins can provide a rich source of context for better understanding how users engage with these services.
Distance Matters: Geo-social Metrics for Online Social Networks
TLDR
This paper presents a graph analysis based approach to study social networks with geographic information and new metrics to characterize how geographic distance affects social structure, and demonstrates that different social networking services exhibit different geo-social properties.
Location 3 : How Users Share and Respond to Location-Based Data on Social Networking Sites
TLDR
A model to predict friendship based on check-in count is constructed and it is shown that co-checkins has a statistically significant effect on friendship.

TLDR
A model to predict friendship based on check-in count is constructed and it is shown that cocheck-ins has a statistically significant effect on friendship.
Friendship and mobility: user movement in location-based social networks
TLDR
A model of human mobility that combines periodic short range movements with travel due to the social network structure is developed and it is shown that this model reliably predicts the locations and dynamics of future human movement and gives an order of magnitude better performance.
Influence and correlation in social networks
TLDR
Two simple tests are proposed that can identify influence as a source of social correlation when the time series of user actions is available and are applied to real tagging data on Flickr, exhibiting that while there is significant social correlation in tagging behavior on this system, this correlation cannot be attributed to social influence.
A Location Prediction Scheme Based on Social Correlation
TLDR
This paper proposes a location prediction scheme based on the idea of social correlation which is a kind of link between different terminals weighted by statistic results of history information, and model topologies as sequences of snapshots to guide prediction.
Mining interesting locations and travel sequences from GPS trajectories
TLDR
This work first model multiple individuals' location histories with a tree-based hierarchical graph (TBHG), and proposes a HITS (Hypertext Induced Topic Search)-based inference model, which regards an individual's access on a location as a directed link from the user to that location.

TLDR
While in recent years online social networks have been largely shaping user experience on the Web, only in the last year there has been a soaring increase of novel location-based social applications that provide a new facet of user online behavior.
