"How Well Do We Know Each Other?" Detecting Tie Strength in Multidimensional Social Networks

L. Pappalardo, G. Rossetti, D. Pedreschi
2012 2012 IEEE/ACM International Conference on Advances in Social Networks Analysis and Mining  
In order to do so, we propose a novel multidimensional definition of tie strength which exploits the existence of multiple online social links between two individuals.  ...  Unfortunately, the majority of social media do not incorporate explicitly tie strength information in the creation and management of relationships, and treat all users the same: friend or stranger, with  ...  CONCLUSION In this work we have introduced a measure of tie strength for multidimensional networks.  ...

Multidimensional Social Network in the Social Recommender System

Przemysław Kazienko, Katarzyna Musial, Tomasz Kajdanowicz
2011 IEEE transactions on systems, man and cybernetics. Part A. Systems and humans  
Additionally, for each layer, a separate strength measure was proposed.  ...  This data can be used to extract different kinds of relationships, which can be grouped into layers, and which are basic components of the multidimensional social network proposed in the paper.  ...  Thus, a tie l ij from user u i to user u j exists in the multidimensional social network, if there exists at least one relation from u i to u j of any kind.  ...

Measuring Real-World Tie Strength with Digital Footprint Data: An Assessment of Convergent Validity

Michael Weiler
2018 International Conference on Information Systems  
Social media networks such as Facebook or other digital data sources on social relations might offer great potential in facilitating the measurement of social capital's relational dimension (i.e., tie  ...  We discuss the implications of this finding, along with recommendations on how researchers nonetheless can utilize digital footprint data fruitfully in studies involving tie strength.  ...  With special thanks to the latter for bringing the stated point of the semantic ontology network to my attention.  ...

The strength of long-range ties in population-scale social networks

Patrick S. Park, Joshua E. Blumenstock, Michael W. Macy
2018 Science  
However, researchers historically have lacked the population-scale network data needed to verify the predicted weakness.  ...  Long-range connections that span large social networks are widely assumed to be weak, composed of sporadic and emotionally distant relationships.  ...  Data and materials availability: The de-identified edgelists with edge weight, tie range, and geographic distance to construct the eight Twitter networks and related scripts are available at (32) .  ...

The external networking behaviour of public managers - the missing link of weak ties

Morten Balle Hansen, Anders R. Villadsen
2017 Public Management Review  
Utilizing measures resembling previous research, we explore the utility of the approach in an exploratory study of Danish local government.  ...  Our findings suggest that the two dimensions of external networking behaviour are distinct.  ...  Yet, we believe it is an important task for future research to develop and validate measures of tie strength in the external networking behaviour of public managers.  ...

Emotions, Demographics and Sociability in Twitter Interactions [article]

Kristina Lerman, Megha Arora, Luciano Gallegos, Ponnurangam Kumaraguru, David Garcia
2016 arXiv   pre-print
This allowed us to measure emotions expressed in the tweets posted from an area, the structure of social connections, and also use that area's socioeconomic characteristics in analysis.  ...  Although a host of socioeconomic and cognitive factors were implicated in the formation of offline social ties, few of them have been empirically validated, particularly in an online setting.  ...  In contrast, low tie strength is associated with a sparse, more diverse network with few interconnections (Fig 2(b) ).  ...

We then use this index to analyze tie strength by the types of relationships.  ...  After comparing sample characteristics, network size, and composition, we construct a Strength of Ties (SoT) index based on two objective and two subjective measures of ego-alter ties.  ...  An earlier version of the paper was presented at Sunbelt XXXIII, the Annual Meeting of the International Network for Social Network Analysis, in Hamburg, Germany, 2013.

The Emotional Strength of Weak Ties: Reevaluating Social Support Online

J Wong, M Shoham
2011 2011 44th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences  
After a short expose on tie strength and online social support, we give an example of how this research has operationalized weak ties only in terms of one of Granovetter's four basic components of tie  ...  strength: frequency of interaction.  ...  In fact, Petrozci [31] and colleagues assert that many studies do not report their measurement of tie strength, presumably due to this generalized assumption.  ...

2016 Ekonomska Istrazivanja-Economic Research  
The research results confirmed the multidimensionality of the network multiplexity concept and showed that it may influence firm growth.  ...  The purpose of the paper is to develop a consistent measure of the entrepreneurs' personal network multiplexity and to analyse its relationship to firm growth.  ...  Research hypotheses Multiplexity can be defined as a structural characteristic of social networks which measures the degree of tie overlaps (Scott, 1991) .  ...
