We study online social group dynamics based on how group members diverge in their online discussions. Previous studies mostly focused on the link structure to characterize social group dynamics, whereas the group behavior of content generation in discussions is not well understood. Particularly, we use Jensen-Shannon (JS) divergence to measure the divergence of topics in user-generated contents, and how it progresses over time. We study Twitter messages (tweets) in multiple real-world events… Expand
Incremental communication patterns in online social groups
TLDR
The Incremental Communication Patterns are formally defined and exploited to investigate the interaction patterns occurring in a real dataset consisting of 17 Online Social Groups taken from the list of Facebook groups and reveal that Incremental communication patterns are able to capture roles of the users within the groups. Expand
Reading the source code of social ties
TLDR
This research proposes an unsupervised, parameter-free method to discover the fundamental domains of interaction occurring in social networks and shows how the network of interactions induced by the extracted domains can be used as a starting point for more nuanced analysis of online social data that may one day incorporate the normative grammar of social interaction.

Predicting Trust Relations Within a Social Network: A Case Study on Emergency Response
TLDR
Drawing on social and psychological theory, pairwise and global trust relations between users in the context of emergent real-world crisis scenarios are detected and significant gains over competitive baselines are demonstrated across multiple datasets drawn from both crisis and non-crisis scenarios, including those with normative ground truth. Expand
Self-disclosure on Twitter During the COVID-19 Pandemic: A Network Perspective
TLDR
This work argues that in pursuit of social rewards users intentionally self-disclose and associate with similarly disclosing users, and illustrates that in this pursuit users may disclose intimate personal health information such as personal ailments and underlying conditions which pose privacy risks. Expand
Profiling, Modelling and Facilitating Online Activism
The extensive and successful use of social media has enhanced and empowered a variety of movements all over the world in a way that is hard to achieve through conventional means. This has led toExpand
Predicting Trust Relations Among Users in a Social Network : The Role of Influence , Cohesion and Valence
Trust is a key concept in social networks, reflecting credibility and reliability for a multitude of participants and online data. Nevertheless, the majority of such networks lack explicit trustExpand

TLDR
This research introduces the notion of versatility for individual topics embedded in Twitter data originated from different regions over time, which can help understanding regional interests and thus providing region-dependent services. Expand

Emotional and Linguistic Cues of Depression from Social Media
TLDR
An observational study examines if one can identify relevant linguistic and emotional signals from social media exchanges to detect symptomatic cues of depression and shows that building a classifier to predict depression based on such features can achieve an F-score of 90%. Expand
Applications of Social Identity Theory to Research and Design in Computer-Supported Cooperative Work
TLDR
It is argued that the emergent properties of self-categorization and social identity, which are particularly fluid and complex in online spaces, provide a complementary perspective with which to re-examine traditional topics in social computing. Expand

User grouping behavior in online forums
TLDR
This paper builds social selection models, Bipartite Markov Random Field (BiMRF), and shows that some features carry supplementary information, and the effectiveness of different features vary in different types of forums. Expand
Distinguishing topical and social groups based on common identity and bond theory
TLDR
The process of manual labeling of groups into social or topical and results of predicting the group label based on the defined features are discussed and directly validate the predictions of the theory showing that the metrics are able to forecast the group type with high accuracy. Expand
On participation in group chats on Twitter
TLDR
The 5F Model is built, which captures five different factors: individual initiative, group characteristics, perceived receptivity, linguistic affinity and geographical proximity, and shows similarities between Twitter chats and traditional groups such as the importance of social inclusion and linguistic similarity. Expand
Prediction of Topic Volume on Twitter
We discuss an approach for predicting microscopic (individual) and macroscopic (collective) user behavioral patterns with respect to specific trending topics on Twitter 1 . Going beyond previousExpand
The life and death of online groups: predicting group growth and longevity
TLDR
Analysis of data from several thousand online social networks built on the Ning platform provides insight into how both early non-diffusion growth and a complex set of network constraints appear to contribute to the initial and continued growth and success of groups within social networks. Expand
Group formation in large social networks: membership, growth, and evolution
TLDR
It is found that the propensity of individuals to join communities, and of communities to grow rapidly, depends in subtle ways on the underlying network structure, and decision-tree techniques are used to identify the most significant structural determinants of these properties. Expand
The Geospatial Characteristics of a Social Movement Communication Network
TLDR
This work examines an online communication network reconstructed from over 600,000 tweets from a thirty-six week period covering the birth and maturation of the American anticapitalist movement, Occupy Wall Street and proposes that these features reflect the movement’s efforts to mobilize resources at the local level and to develop narrative frames that reinforce collective purpose at the national level.

Influence and passivity in social media
TLDR
An algorithm is proposed that determines the influence and passivity of users based on their information forwarding activity and it is demonstrated that high popularity does not necessarily imply high influence and vice-versa. Expand
User Taglines: Alternative Presentations of Expertise and Interest in Social Media
TLDR
This study studies the problem of automatic generation of informative expertise summary or taglines for Twitter experts in space constraint imposed by UI design, and proposes three methods for expertise summary generation: Occupation-Pattern based, Link-Triangulation based and User-Classification based, with the use of knowledge-enhanced computing approaches.
