Searching for events in the blogosphere

Manolis Platakis, Dimitrios Kotsakos, Dimitrios Gunopulos
2009 Proceedings of the 18th international conference on World wide web - WWW '09  
Every blog post in the Blogosphere has a well defined timestamp, which is not taken into account by search engines.  ...  We evaluate the results trying to match them with real life events. Finally, we propose some ideas for further evaluation techniques and future research in the field.  ...  Due to space constraints we refer to [4] for a more extensive review of the related work. OUR APPROACH We search for events in the Blogosphere.  ...

Convergence of Influential Bloggers for Topic Discovery in the Blogosphere [chapter]

Shamanth Kumar, Reza Zafarani, Mohammad Ali Abbasi, Geoffrey Barbier, Huan Liu
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we propose a novel approach to automatically detect "hot" or important topics of discussion in the blogosphere.  ...  The key advantage of the proposed approach is its ability to automatically detect events which are important in the blogger community.  ...  Acknowledgements This work was supported in part by the Office of Naval Research under the grant NR N00014-09-1-0165.  ...

Conspiratory fascination versus public interest: the case of 'climategate'

Stephan Lewandowsky
2014 Environmental Research Letters  
The brevity of public interest in 'climategate' stands in contrast to the continued and growing fascination of the 'skeptic' blogosphere with that event.  ...  There has been an overall decline of public interest in climate change after 2007, accompanied by spikes of interest with a half-life of six days for these two media events.  ...  Those spikes in interest were expressed in greater search volumes for 'skeptical' terms such as 'global warming hoax'.  ...

Monitoring the evolution of interests in the blogosphere

Iraklis Varlamis, Vasilis Vassalos, Antonis Palaios
2008 2008 IEEE 24th International Conference on Data Engineering Workshop  
The motivation for the work is a hypothesized strong connection between important (global or "local") events and the rapid reduction in the divergence of (global or "local") weblog topic coverage.  ...  We describe blogTrust, an innovative modular and extensible prototype application for monitoring changes in the interests of blogosphere participants.  ...  We plan on experimenting with more focused datasets (i.e. in the greek portion of the blogosphere) and for longer periods of time, and search for convergence of interests associated with smaller (i.e.,  ...

Leveraging user-generated content for news search

2010 Proceeding of the 33rd international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '10  
Secondly, we consider the task of real-time event detection. It is imperative for search engines to maintain knowledge of the events of the moment, such that the results displayed are updated.  ...  Indeed, the main purpose of this thesis is to research practical techniques for the integration of UGC to improve the news search component of the most ubiquitous of Web tools, i.e the Web search engine  ...  We hypothesise that UGC is ideal for presentation in these cases as the delay between an event occurring and commentary appearing in UGC sources like Twitter or the Blogosphere is mear minutes.  ...

The blogosphere as an excitable social medium: Richter's and Omori's Law in media coverage

Peter Klimek, Werner Bayer, Stefan Thurner
2011 Physica A: Statistical Mechanics and its Applications  
We present further empirical evidence that for media events of endogenous origin the overall public reception of the event is correlated with the behavior of word frequencies at the beginning of the event  ...  These results may imply that the process of opinion formation in a human society might be related to effects known from excitable media.  ...  In particular, for each remaining triplet we searched for the day with the highest frequency, assume this day is t 0 . For this day a list of all words containing the triplet was made.  ...
