Learning Influence Probabilities and Modelling Influence Diffusion in Twitter
A model to learn influence probabilities between users in Twitter from their action history is developed and diffusion models that are used to predict how information is propagated in Twitter are introduced.
A Reliability-Based Approach for Influence Maximization Using the Evidence Theory
An influence measure is proposed that combines many influence indicators and is defined under the framework of the theory of belief functions, which considers the reliability of each influence indicator and presents a distance-based process that allows to estimate the accuracy of each indicator.
Evidential Independence Maximization on Twitter Network
An evidential independence maximization approach for Twitter users is presented based on three metrics reflecting users behaviors and considers the independence as a characteristic of influencers even if not all independent users are influencers.
Influencers characterization in a social network for viral marketing perspectives. (Caractérisation des influenceurs dans un réseau social pour des perspectives de Marketing viral)
This thesis proposes two evidential influence maximization models for social networks that uses the theory of belief functions to estimate users influence and introduces an influence measure that fuses many influence aspects, like the importance of the user in the network and the popularity of his messages.
Evidential positive opinion influence measures for viral marketing
This paper introduces an evidential opinion-based influence maximization model for viral marketing and proposes six influence measures, two for each scenario, that the set of detected influencers for each scenarios are used.
An Influence Model Based on Heterogeneous Online Social Network for Influence Maximization
The results show that MIF model and IMGA algorithm have better influence spread effects and higher quality of the seed set identification comparing to the approaches under IC, LT, CDNF, MIA, and BBA, models.


Measuring User Influence on Twitter Using Modified K-Shell Decomposition
A modified k-shell decomposition algorithm for computing user influence on Twitter is investigated, modified to assign logarithmic k- shell values to users, producing a measure of users that is surprisingly well distributed in a bell curve.
Measuring User Influence in Twitter: The Million Follower Fallacy
An in-depth comparison of three measures of influence, using a large amount of data collected from Twitter, is presented, suggesting that topological measures such as indegree alone reveals very little about the influence of a user.
Classification of Message Spreading in a Heterogeneous Social Network
The goal of the paper is to classify the social message based on its spreading in the network and the theory of belief functions, and the proposed classifier interprets the spread of messages on the network, crossed paths and types of links.
The Influence in Twitter: Are They Really Influenced?
An improvement of PageRank is presented, which is called InterRank Inter action Rank, which considers not only the follower relationship of the network but also topical similarity between users from tweet context and results show that the users found by InterRank are more interactive than those by PageRank.
Discovering influential nodes from trust network
This work proposes the T-GT model, which considers both positive and negative influences in social trust networks, and proposes a local search based algorithm called mineSeedLS for node add, exchange and delete operations, to discover influential nodes from trust networks.
A Data-Based Approach to Social Influence Maximization
A new model is introduced, which is called credit distribution, that directly leverages available propagation traces to learn how influence flows in the network and uses this to estimate expected influence spread, and is time-aware in the sense that it takes the temporal nature of influence into account.
Time Constrained Influence Maximization in Social Networks
It is shown that the problem is NP-hard, and the monotonicity and submodularity of the time constrained influence spread function is proved, and a greedy algorithm with performance guarantees is developed.
Influence Maximization in Social Networks When Negative Opinions May Emerge and Propagate
This paper proposes an extension to the independent cascade model that incorporates the emergence and propagation of negative opinions, and designs an efficient algorithm to compute influence in tree structures, which is nontrivial due to the negativity bias in the model.
The Multiple Facets of Influence
This study compares six metrics commonly used to identify influential players in two of Canada’s largest political Twitter communities based on the users, and ranking order of users, identified by
