Personalized Degrees: Effects on Link Formation in Dynamic Networks from an Egocentric Perspective

Makan Arastuie, Kevin S. Xu
2019 Companion Proceedings of The 2019 World Wide Web Conference on - WWW '19  
Understanding mechanisms driving link formation in dynamic social networks is a long-standing problem that has implications to understanding social structure as well as link prediction and recommendation  ...  In this paper, we examine mechanisms behind link formation from the perspective of an ego node.  ...  In this setting, it only makes sense to predict links between the social media user, i.e. the ego node, and other nodes in the network.  ...
