Location-based social networks (LBSNs) have attracted an inordinate number of users and greatly enriched the urban experience in recent years. The availability of spatial, temporal and social information in online LBSNs offers an unprecedented opportunity to study various aspects of human behavior, and enable a variety of location-based services such as location recommendation. Previous work studied spatial and social influences on location recommendation in LBSNs. Due to the strong…

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.
Personalized location recommendation on location-based social networks
TLDR
This tutorial offers an overview, in a data mining perspective, of personalized location recommendation on location-based social networks, and introduces basic concepts, summarizes unique LBSN characteristics and research opportunities, elaborates associated challenges, and reviews state-of-the-art algorithms with illustrative examples and real-world LBSn datasets.
TPM
TLDR
A Temporal Personalized Model (TPM) is proposed, which introduces a novel latent variable topic-region to model and fuse sequential influence, cyclic patterns with personal interests in the latent and exponential space, and introduces two methods to model the effect of variouscyclic patterns.
Behavior-based location recommendation on location-based social networks
TLDR
Behavior-based Location Recommendation (BLR) recommends a location to a user based on the users’ repetitive behaviors and behaviors of similar users and can effectively address data sparsity and cold-start problems.
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.
Exploiting Spatial and Temporal for Point of Interest Recommendation
TLDR
This work designs a probabilistic method to initially detect users’ spatial orientation by analyzing visibility weights of POIs which are visited by them, and combines the spatial and temporal influences to construct a unified framework for making the POI recommendation.
TPM: A Temporal Personalized Model for Spatial Item Recommendation
TLDR
A Temporal Personalized Model (TPM) is proposed, which introduces a novel latent variable topic-region to model and fuse sequential influence, cyclic patterns with personal interests in the latent and exponential space, and introduces two methods to model the effect of variouscyclic patterns.
Location Recommendation based on location-based social networks for Entertainment services
TLDR
A model to recommend location to users is provided based on real world data of online location social network Foursquare and the results show improvements of the model compare to pervious works.
Spatiotemporal Sequential Influence Modeling for Location Recommendations
TLDR
A new gravity model for location recommendations, called LORE, is proposed, to exploit the spatiotemporal sequential influence on location recommendations and achieves significantly superior location recommendations compared to other state-of-the-art location recommendation techniques.

Location recommendation for location-based social networks
TLDR
A friend-based collaborative filtering approach for location recommendation based on collaborative ratings of places made by social friends is developed, and a variant of FCF technique, namely Geo-Measured FCF (GM-FCF), based on heuristics derived from observed geospatial characteristics in the Foursquare dataset is proposed.
Evaluating geo-social influence in location-based social networks
TLDR
This paper performs an in-depth analysis of the geo-social correlations among LBSN users at event level, and proposes a unified influence metric that combines a novel social proximity measure named penalized hitting time, with a geographical weight function modeled by power law distribution.
Fused Matrix Factorization with Geographical and Social Influence in Location-Based Social Networks
TLDR
This paper is the first to fuse MF with geographical and social influence for POI recommendation in LBSNs by capturing the geographical influence via modeling the probability of a user’s check-in on a location as a Multi-center Gaussian Model (MGM).
A Study of Recommending Locations on Location-Based Social Network by Collaborative Filtering
TLDR
The experimental results show that PLSA recommender with the probability utilization outperforms other combinations of recommenders and utilizations for recommending locations to users on LBSN.
Exploring Social-Historical Ties on Location-Based Social Networks
TLDR
A social-historical model is proposed to explore user’s check-in behavior on location-based social networks and shows how social and historical ties can help location prediction.
Exploiting geographical influence for collaborative point-of-interest recommendation
TLDR
This paper argues that the geographical influence among POIs plays an important role in user check-in behaviors and model it by power law distribution, and develops a collaborative recommendation algorithm based on geographical influence based on naive Bayesian.
Recommending friends and locations based on individual location history
TLDR
A framework, referred to as a hierarchical-graph-based similarity measurement (HGSM), is proposed to uniformly model each individual's location history, and effectively measure the similarity among users, which outperforms related similarity measures, namely similarity-by-count, cosine similarity, and Pearson similarity measures.
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.
A recommendation system for spots in location-based online social networks
TLDR
A personalized recommender for places in location-based OSNs, based on the check-ins of the entire user base is proposed, and the feasability of using Collaborative Filtering techniques to make personalized recommendation of potentially interesting spots is confirmed.
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.
