An Analysis of the Overlap of Categories in a Network of Blogs [chapter]

Priya Saha, Ronaldo Menezes
2013 Studies in Computational Intelligence  
Information spreads via many different channels, but more recently we have witnessed the birth of the information-over-online-social-network phenomena.  ...  This means that more and more people get their news from online social networks such Facebook and microblogs such as Twitter. Yet, another source of information are weblogs (or blogs).  ...  We concentrated on the overlapped blogs and extracted them from the full network. The resulting network of only overlapped blogs is also very well connected.  ...

Identifying opinion leaders in the blogosphere

Xiaodan Song, Yun Chi, Koji Hino, Belle Tseng
2007 Proceedings of the sixteenth ACM conference on Conference on information and knowledge management - CIKM '07  
Opinion leaders capture the most representative opinions in the social network, and consequently are important for understanding the massive and complex blogosphere.  ...  The InfluenceRank algorithm ranks blogs according to not only how important they are as compared to other blogs, but also how novel the information they can contribute to the network.  ...  The cleaned dataset contains 407 English blogs with 67,549 entries and with 11,187 key terms. We further extract links from the entries.  ...

Using tag semantic network for keyphrase extraction in blogs

Lizhen Qu, Christof Müller, Iryna Gurevych
2008 Proceeding of the 17th ACM conference on Information and knowledge mining - CIKM '08  
As the tags in the blogosphere are sparse, ambiguous and too general, this paper proposes both a supervised and an unsupervised approach that extract tags from posts using a tag semantic network.  ...  Folksonomies provide a comfortable way to search and browse the blogosphere.  ...  In addition, important keyphrases extracted from blog posts can compensate for general tags by providing more focused information.  ...

Patterns of Cascading Behavior in Large Blog Graphs [chapter]

Jure Leskovec, Mary McGlohon, Christos Faloutsos, Natalie Glance, Matthew Hurst
2007 Proceedings of the 2007 SIAM International Conference on Data Mining  
Aggregating links from several blog posts creates a directed graph which we analyze to discover the patterns of information propagation in blogspace, and thereby understand the underlying social network  ...  Often blogs link to one another, creating a publicly available record of how information and influence spreads through an underlying social network.  ...  From the Post network, we extract information cascades, which are induced subgraphs by edges representing the flow of information.  ...
