How to search a social network [article]

Lada A. Adamic, Eytan Adar
2004 arXiv   pre-print
However, we find that in the online student network, where the data is incomplete and hierarchical structures are not well defined, local search strategies are less effective.  ...  We address the question of how participants in a small world experiment are able to find short paths in a social network using only local information about their immediate contacts.  ...  Conclusion In recent years it has become much simpler to harvest large social networks due to the growing rise in popularity of electronic communication media such as email, instant messaging and online  ...

How to search a social network

Lada Adamic, Eytan Adar
2005 Social Networks  
We simulate such experiments on a network of actual email contacts within an organization as well as on a student social networking website.  ...  However, we find that in the online student network, where the data is incomplete and hierarchical structures are not well defined, local search strategies are less effective.  ...  The data gathered from the online community provides an opportunity to study how small world search works in this alternate social network.  ...

Interactive poster - SocialRank: An ego- and time-centric workflow for relationship identification

Jaime Montemayor, Chris Diehl, Mike Pekala, David Patrone
2008 2008 IEEE Symposium on Visual Analytics Science and Technology  
In this paper, we describe SocialRank, an egoand time-centric workflow for identifying social relationships in an email corpus.  ...  From instant messaging and email to wikis and blogs, millions of individuals are generating content that reflects their relationships with others in the world, both online and offline.  ...  The network diagram in Figure 2 represents the captured knowledge of social relationships, their corresponding validating messages and the analyst's annotations.  ...

Do Internet Users Have More Social Ties? A Call for Differentiated Analyses of Internet Use

Shanyang Zhao
2006 Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication  
Acknowledgments This research was supported in part by funding from the Department of Sociology at Temple University. I thank the anonymous reviewers for helpful comments and suggestions.  ...  Thus, this finding partially confirms H2, showing that extent of Internet usage is positively related to network size in the case of email exchange, but is not related to social connectivity in the case  ...  Because of this, an increase in online contacts among chat users may not be associated with a corresponding growth in their offline contacts.  ...

Email alias detection using social network analysis

Ralf Hölzer, Bradley Malin, Latanya Sweeney
2005 Proceedings of the 3rd international workshop on Link discovery - LinkKDD '05  
The problem is defined as given social network S, constructed from email address collocations, and an email address E, identify any aliases for E that also appear in S.  ...  Previous approaches focused on natural language processing and structured data, whereas in this research we analyze the local association, or "social" network in which aliases reside.  ...  CONCLUSION This research demonstrated that email aliases corresponding to the same entity occur in close geodesic proximity within social networks inferred from online sources.  ...
