Lifespan and propagation of information in On-line Social Networks a Case Study [article]

Giannis Haralabopoulos, Ioannis Anagnostopoulos
2014 arXiv   pre-print
Since 1950, information flows have been in the centre of scientific research. Up until internet penetration in the late 90s, these studies were based over traditional offline social networks.  ...  In this paper, we examine such flows in several social networks, as well as their diffusion and lifespan across multiple OSNs, in terms of user-generated content.  ...  Even before the rise of Online Social Networks (OSNs), social ties and information flows have been studied in traditional real-life social networks.  ...
