Offline Behaviors of Online Friends

  title={Offline Behaviors of Online Friends},
  author={Piotr Sapiezynski and Arkadiusz Stopczynski and David Kofoed Wind and Jure Leskovec and Sune Lehmann},
In this work we analyze traces of mobility and co-location among a group of nearly 1000 closely interacting individuals. We attempt to reconstruct the Facebook friendship graph, Facebook interaction network, as well as call and SMS networks from longitudinal records of person-to-person offline proximity. We find subtle, yet observable behavioral differences between pairs of people who communicate using each of the different channels and we show that the signal of friendship is strong enough to… Expand
Interaction data from the Copenhagen Networks Study
This work describes the multi-layer temporal network which connects a population of more than 700 university students over a period of four weeks, and expects that reuse of this dataset will allow researchers to make progress on the analysis and modeling of human social networks. Expand
Contact activity and dynamics of the online elite
It is shown that the various channels account for diverse relationships between pairs of individuals and the corresponding interaction patterns across channels differ to an extent that hinders the simple reduction of social ties to a single layer. Expand
Contact activity and dynamics of the social core
It is shown here that the network structure of these channels show large structural variations, which can facilitate the understanding of the varying roles and impact individuals have on the population and shed light on the prediction and prevention of epidemic outbreaks, or information propagation.

Beyond the Core: Who Has Larger Social Networks?
The sociological literature on social networks overwhelmingly considers the number of core social contacts. Social networks, however, reach far beyond this small number of social ties. We know littleExpand
Towards privacy-sensitive mobile crowdsourcing
It is shown that FOUGERE defeats the state-of-the-art location-based privacy attacks with little impact on the quality of the collected data, and is proposed to convey data samples from user devices using peer-to-peer (P2P) communications to third-party servers, thus introducing an a priori data anonymization process that is resilient to location- based attacks.

Online-to-Offline Advertisements as Field Experiments
It is demonstrated that a simple analysis may underrate the effects of advertisements on businesses, and an analysis considering externality can attract potentially valuable customers. Expand
Capturing Privacy-Preserving User Contexts with IndoorHash
This paper addresses the challenge of producing a new location hash that captures the indoor location of a user, without disclosing the physical coordinates, thus preserving their privacy and enabling a new generation of privacy-preserving crowdsourcing mobile applications that protect from third parties re-identification attacks.

Bridging the gap between physical location and online social networks
A novel set of location-based features for analyzing the social context of a geographic region, including location entropy, which measures the diversity of unique visitors of a location, are introduced. Expand
Inferring friendship network structure by using mobile phone data
It is demonstrated that it is possible to accurately infer 95% of friendships based on the observational data alone, where friend dyads demonstrate distinctive temporal and spatial patterns in their physical proximity and calling patterns that allow the prediction of individual-level outcomes such as job satisfaction. Expand
Entangling Mobility and Interactions in Social Media
A model that bridges the gap between mobility and social interactions by explicitly considering the feedback of mobility on the formation of social ties is introduced, finding that a balance between friend visits and long-range random connections is essential to reproduce the geographical features of the empirical networks. Expand
Inferring Tie Strength from Online Directed Behavior
It was found the frequency of online interaction was diagnostic of strong ties, and interaction frequency was much more useful diagnostically than were attributes of the user or the user’s friends. Expand
User interactions in social networks and their implications
This paper proposes the use of interaction graphs to impart meaning to online social links by quantifying user interactions, and uses both types of graphs to validate two well-known social-based applications (RE and SybilGuard). Expand
Rhythms of social interaction: messaging within a massive online network
This paper studies the social net- work service Facebook, which began in early 2004 in select universities, but grew quickly to encompass a very large number of universities. Expand
Exploiting place features in link prediction on location-based social networks
A supervised learning framework is described which exploits new prediction features based on the properties of the places visited by users which are able to discriminate potential future links among them and which exploits these prediction features to predict new links among friends-of-friends and place-friends. Expand
Coupling human mobility and social ties
It is found that the composition of a user's ego network in terms of the type of contacts they keep is correlated with mobility behaviour, and a popular mobility model is extended to include movement choices based on social contacts and compared with two additional models of mobility. Expand
Friendship and mobility: user movement in location-based social networks
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. Expand
Distance Matters: Geo-social Metrics for Online Social Networks
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. Expand
