Human mobility, social ties, and link prediction

Dashun Wang, Dino Pedreschi, Chaoming Song, Fosca Giannotti, Albert-Laszlo Barabasi
2011 Proceedings of the 17th ACM SIGKDD international conference on Knowledge discovery and data mining - KDD '11  
We believe our findings on the interplay of mobility patterns and social ties offer new perspectives on not only link prediction but also network dynamics.  ...  We find that the similarity between two individuals' movements strongly correlates with their proximity in the social network.  ...  Therefore, these data serve as an unprecedented social microscope helping us scrutinize the mobility patterns together with social structure and the intensity of social interactions.  ...

Understanding metropolitan patterns of daily encounters

Lijun Sun, Kay W. Axhausen, Der-Horng Lee, Xianfeng Huang
2013 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America  
Using a population scale dataset, we find physical encounters display reproducible temporal patterns, indicating that repeated encounters are regular and identical.  ...  Revealing the encounter pattern and identifying this large-scale contact network are crucial to understanding the dynamics in patterns of social acquaintances, collective human behaviors, and -- particularly  ...  paper, and Margaret Grieco for giving us important comments on the text.  ...

Network game design

Kuan-Ta Chen, Chin-Laung Lei
2006 Proceedings of 5th ACM SIGCOMM workshop on Network and system support for games - NetGames '06  
We also find that participants who have a higher degree of social interaction tend to play much longer, and players who are closer in network topology tend to team up for longer periods.  ...  This work is dedicated to draw out hints and implications of player interaction patterns, which is inferred from network-level traces, for online games.  ...  We then analyze player interaction patterns and discuss their implications in a number of aspects, including player density, network proximity, session duration, and interaction levels.  ...

Effects of phenology and sex on social proximity in a gregarious ungulate

E. Vander Wal, P.C. Paquet, F. Messier, P.D. McLoughlin
2013 Canadian Journal of Zoology  
A recent novel approach to quantifying fine-scale social behaviour has been to use proximity-logging biotelemetry collars.  ...  Structure in sociality is known to relate to intrinsic and extrinsic factors.  ...  Here we are concerned with the number and duration of social interactions (obtained from proximity-logging radio collars).  ...

Inferring social structure from continuous-time interaction data [article]

Wesley Lee, Bailey K. Fosdick, Tyler H. McCormick
2018 arXiv   pre-print
Existing continuous-time methods for modeling such data are based on point processes and directly model interaction "contagion," whereby one interaction increases the propensity of future interactions  ...  We characterize interactions between a pair of actors as either spurious or that resulting from an underlying, persistent connection in a latent social network.  ...  the barn swallow interaction data.  ...

A social network analysis of customer-level revenue distribution

Michael Haenlein
2010 Marketing letters  
Using the customer base of a telecommunications company, our study analyzes network autocorrelation in the distribution of customerlevel revenue within a social network.  ...  Furthermore, we show that approximating communicative proximity by spatial proximity leads to a substantial underestimation of these effects.  ...  As shown by Feld and Carter (2002) , respondents tend to over-report interactions with attractive people and under-report interactions with those who are unattractive.  ...

Communication Technology and Friendship During the Transition from High School to College [chapter]

Robert Kraut, Malcolm Brynin, Sara Kiesler
2006 Computers, Phones, and the InternetDomesticating Information Technology  
Proximity not only increases the frequency of communication, but also shifts the types of interactions between individuals.  ...  This result is consistent with predictions from media richness and social presence theories; i.e., that richer and more interactive media will better support social relationships.  ...  social cues, reduced social presence, and less interactivity may be better.  ...

Familiar Strangers: the Collective Regularity in Human Behaviors [article]

Yan Leng, Dominiquo Santistevan, Alex Pentland
2018 arXiv   pre-print
However, there has been limited research focusing on uncovering the phenomenon at a societal scale and simultaneously investigating the social relationships between familiar strangers.  ...  Moreover, we explore the relationship between social distances on the communication network and the number of encounters and show that larger number of encounters indicates shorter social distances in  ...  This data simultaneously captures two layers of a network: physical proximity and social networks.  ...

Paternal relatedness and age proximity regulate social relationships among adult female rhesus macaques

A. Widdig, P. Nurnberg, M. Krawczak, W. J. Streich, F. B. Bercovitch
2001 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America  
Here, we examine the effect of both maternal and paternal kinship, as well as age proximity, on affiliative interactions among semifree-ranging adult female rhesus macaques, Macaca mulatta.  ...  Kin selection promotes the evolution of social behavior that increases the survival and reproductive success of close relatives.  ...  We refined our analysis of age proximity and kinship by considering the exact age difference between interacting social partners.  ...
