From User Comments to On-Line Conversations

Chunyan Wang, Mao Ye, Bernardo A. Huberman
2012 Social Science Research Network  
We present an analysis of user conversations in on-line social media and their evolution over time.  ...  By separating artificial factors from user behavior, we show that there are actually underlying rules in common for on-line conversations in di↵erent social media websites.  ...  We analyze the duration of new topics displayed to users, and also the non-Poisson nature of user commenting behavior. • Model of On-line Conversations.  ...

From User Comments to On-line Conversations [article]

Chunyan Wang, Mao Ye, Bernardo A. Huberman
2012 arXiv   pre-print
We present an analysis of user conversations in on-line social media and their evolution over time.  ...  By separating artificial factors from user behaviors, we show that there are actually underlying rules in common for on-line conversations in different social media websites.  ...  Figure 4 : 4 The arrival pattern of comments from one user. Every short vertical line in the figure represents the time of a comment from the user.  ...

Affective Behaviour Analysis of On-line User Interactions: Are On-line Support Groups more Therapeutic than Twitter? [article]

Giuliano Tortoreto, Evgeny A. Stepanov, Alessandra Cervone, Mateusz Dubiel, Giuseppe Riccardi
2019 arXiv   pre-print
The methodology is evaluated on On-line asynchronous multi-party conversations collected from an OSG and Twitter.  ...  Moreover, the analysis of OSG conversations reveals that the users of that platform are supportive, and interactions are likely to lead to the improvement of their emotional state.  ...  In Twitter, on the other hand, the users mostly changed polarity from positive to negative.  ...

Factors Enabling Information Propagation in a Social Network Site [chapter]

Matteo Magnani, Danilo Montesi, Luca Rossi
2012 Lecture Notes in Social Networks  
A relevant feature of Social Network Sites is their ability to propagate units of information and create large distributed conversations.  ...  that can potentially be exposed to information items.  ...  At this level one could assume that a message sent while there are many on-line users has a higher probability to be commented and then propagated.  ...

An Intrablog-Based Informal Communication Encouraging System that Seamlessly Links On-Line Communications to Off-Line Ones

Y. CHIBA, K. NISHIMOTO
2007 IEICE transactions on information and systems  
Thus, Attractiblog attempts to seamlessly link on-line communications to offline communications.  ...  We conducted user studies and confirmed that Attractiblog can achieve a natural correspondence between topics in face-toface informal communications and issues related to the activities of an organization  ...  Thus, Attractiblog has achieved only a one-way link from on-line to off-line.  ...

The SENSEI Overview of Newspaper Readers' Comments [chapter]

Adam Funk, Ahmet Aker, Emma Barker, Monica Lestari Paramita, Mark Hepple, Robert Gaizauskas
2017 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Automatic summarization of reader comments in on-line news is a challenging but clearly useful task.  ...  We specify an alternative summary type for reader comments, based on the notions of issues and viewpoints, and demonstrate our user interface to present it.  ...  The prototype 2 and a video 3 (which was used as training material in the evaluation) are available on-line.  ...

2019 Indonesian Journal of Applied Linguistics  
As a new way of communication, social media conversations on the Internet do have some characteristics that are different from common face-to-face conversations.  ...  One of the differences lies in the existence of systemic cohesion in addition to the established conventional cohesion.  ...  bottom of the line responds to the one on the top.  ...

Understanding Conflicts in Online Conversations

Sharon Levy, Robert E. Kraut, Jane A. Yu, Kristen M. Altenburger, Yi-Chia Wang
2022 Proceedings of the ACM Web Conference 2022  
With the rise of social media, users from across the world are able to connect and converse with each other online.  ...  We study both user characteristics (e.g., historical user-to-user interactions) and conversation dynamics (e.g., changes in emotional intensity over the course of the conversation).  ...  Using these values, we calculate the best fit line and utilize the slope of the line to represent the feature's evolution throughout the conversation.  ...

Characterizing Conversation Patterns in Reddit

Daejin Choi, Jinyoung Han, Taejoong Chung, Yong-Yeol Ahn, Byung-Gon Chun, Ted Taekyoung Kwon
2015 Proceedings of the 2015 ACM on Conference on Online Social Networks - COSN '15  
To this end, we collect 700 K threaded conversations from 1.5 M users in Reddit, one of the most popular online communities allowing people to communicate with others in the form of threaded conversations  ...  One of the common online communication patterns is a threaded conversation where a user brings up a conversation topic, and then other people respond to the initiator or other participants by commenting  ...  Note that we exclude outliers to present ones ranging from 25% to 75% of the distribution (as a box plot) to focus on the normal user behavior.  ...

GroupBanter: Supporting Serendipitous Group Conversations with IM [chapter]

Kori Inkpen, Steve Whittaker, Mary Czerwinski, Roland Fernandez, James Wallace
2009 Lecture Notes of the Institute for Computer Sciences, Social Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering  
Results from two field studies carried out in different contexts show that users valued GroupBanter and that it provided new opportunities for communication that aren"t well served by traditional IM, email  ...  We investigate the potential of ephemeral group conversations by providing awareness of friends" IM conversations, serving as an implicit invitation to join a group conversation.  ...  In addition, we would like to thank members of VIBE and ASI for their feedback on early versions of GroupBanter.  ...

How Random are Online Social Interactions? [article]

Chunyan Wang, Bernardo A. Huberman
2012 arXiv   pre-print
In addition, we show that individual interactions are more predictable when users act on their own rather than when attending group activities.  ...  We use two large social databases to measure the mutual information entropy that both individual and group actions generate as they evolve over time.  ...  W. would like to thank HP Labs for financial support.

Visualizing Research Topics in Facebook Conversations

Pierluigi Vitale, Raffaele Guarasci, Iolanda Sara Iannotta
2017 Proceedings (MDPI)  
The authors investigate Facebook conversations and status from the linguistic point of view, to know possible educational implications, starting from data visualization process.  ...  As a result, information has gradually shifted from "official" sources (online newspapers, institutional websites, etc.) to usergenerated-content (UGG).  ...  The authors purposed to choose a line chart to visualize the data about the comments and a bar chart for the status ones.  ...
