Social annotations in web search

Aditi Muralidharan, Zoltan Gyongyi, Ed Chi
2012 Proceedings of the 2012 ACM annual conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems - CHI '12  
We ask how to best present social annotations on search results, and attempt to find an answer through mixed-method eye-tracking and interview experiments.  ...  The key findings of our experiments indicate room for improvement. First, only certain social contacts are useful sources of information, depending on the search topic.  ...  Annotations from Knowledgeable Contacts Are Useful All participants said that annotations would be useful when they came from people whom searchers believed had good taste, knowledge or experience with  ...

The Social Future of Web Search: Modeling, Exploiting, and Searching Collaboratively Generated Content

Eugene Agichtein, Evgeniy Gabrilovich, Hongyuan Zha
2009 IEEE Data Engineering Bulletin  
We describe how this information can be incorporated into learning-based ranking methods for searching social media, and how CGC could be used to improve performance on key text mining and search tasks  ...  The resulting archives of both the content and the context of the interactions contain valuable information that is often not available elsewhere, and can be helpful for the development of novel ranking  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS: The first author acknowledges generous support from the Yahoo! Faculty grant, the Cisco "Improving the Human Network" program, and the Emory College Seed Fund.  ...

Enhancing user search experience in digital libraries with rotated latent semantic indexing

Serhiy Polyakov
2015 Proceedings of the Association for Information Science and Technology  
A new instrument was developed for this study and the experiment showed high reliability of the measurement scales and confirmed the construct validity.  ...  The experimental systems that utilize those topical labels were built for the purposes of evaluating user satisfaction with the search process.  ...  With the results emerging from the analysis, the study tested the hypotheses allowing me to draw conclusions about relationships among variables expressed in the model.  ...

Exploratory Professional Search through Semantic Post-Analysis of Search Results [chapter]

Pavlos Fafalios, Yannis Tzitzikas
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this article, apart from detailing the steps of this process, we present applications of this approach in the marine domain and in the domain of patent search. 1 Faceted search is a technique for accessing  ...  that is based on semantic post-analysis of the classical search results (of keyword based queries).  ...  From an information integration perspective, we can say that entity names are used as the "glue" for automatically connecting documents with data (and knowledge).  ...

News vertical search using user-generated content

Richard McCreadie
2012 SIGIR Forum  
From the perspective of a news vertical, event detection is an important topic, since the search engine requires knowledge of emerging events to be able to identify news-related queries about them.  ...  representation from our blog stream experiments.  ...  In effect, the story representation acts as the bridge between the story and the blog posts relating to it. However, there are many different possible representations.  ...

Immediate search in the IDE as an example of socio-technical congruence in search-driven development

Adrian Kuhn
2010 Proceedings of 2010 ICSE Workshop on Search-driven Development: Users, Infrastructure, Tools and Evaluation - SUITE '10  
We present how immediate search results lead to a user experience of code browsing rather than one of waiting for and clicking through search results.  ...  Eventually we conclude with remarks on the sociotechnical congruence of search-driven development.  ...  We thank Niko Schwarz for his feedback and comments, and we thank the members of the Pharo mailing list for their help with Smalltalk and its search features.  ...

Identifying the influential bloggers in a community

Nitin Agarwal, Huan Liu, Lei Tang, Philip S. Yu
2008 Proceedings of the international conference on Web search and web data mining - WSDM '08  
To illustrate these issues, we conduct experiments with data from a real-world blog site, evaluate multi-facets of the problem of identifying influential bloggers, and discuss unique challenges.  ...  Bloggers write blog posts, share their likes and dislikes, voice their opinions, provide suggestions, report news, and form groups in Blogosphere.  ...  To our best knowledge, our effort is the first attempt to find influential bloggers. Hence, there are no available blog data sets for the purposes of our experiments.  ...

Yan Zhang
2014 Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology  
To fill this gap, guided by decision-making theories and the cognitive perspective to information search, we interviewed 30 participants about their reasons for using a wide range of sources for health  ...  In addition, about a dozen criteria that mediate the influence of the factors on source-selection decisions were identified, including accessibility, quality, usability, interactivity, relevance, usefulness  ...  The platform emerged as a distinct influencing factor with the emergence of social media (e.g., blogs, Wikis, and SNSs).  ...
