Spreading rumours without the network

Paweł Brach, Alessandro Epasto, Alessandro Panconesi, Piotr Sankowski
2014 Proceedings of the second edition of the ACM conference on Online social networks - COSN '14  
Finally, we analyse real instances of rumour spreading in Twitter and observe that our model describes qualitatively well their evolution.  ...  In this paper we tackle the following question: is it possible to predict the characteristics of the evolution of an epidemic process in a social network on the basis of the degree distribution alone?  ...  Acknowledgements We thank Flavio Chierichetti and Silvio Lattanzi for many insightful comments, and Nelly Litvak for some useful pointers to the literature.  ...

Theory of rumour spreading in complex social networks

M. Nekovee, Y. Moreno, G. Bianconi, M. Marsili
2007 Physica A: Statistical Mechanics and its Applications  
Our results show that scale-free social networks are prone to the spreading of rumours, just as they are to the spreading of infections.  ...  We find that the initial rate at which a rumour spreads is much higher in scale-free networks than in random graphs, and that the rate at which the spreading proceeds on scale-free networks is further  ...  [8] , we take this important mechanism into account by assuming that individuals may also cease spreading a rumour spontaneously (i.e., without the need for any contact) at a rate d.  ...

Modelling Periodic Data Dissemination in Wireless Sensor Networks

Graham Williamson, Davide Cellai, Simon Dobson, Paddy Nixon
2009 2009 Third UKSim European Symposium on Computer Modeling and Simulation  
We show that it is possible to control data freshness without increasing overhead, and quantify the importance of topology in achieving timely dissemination.  ...  We present simulation results that suggest the model can provide insights into the design and optimisation of sensor networks in the case of dissemination of periodically generated data.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT This work is supported by Science Foundation Ireland under grant 07/CE/I1147, and 03/CE2/I303-1, "Lero: the Irish Software Engineering Research Centre."  ...

MINIMIZING INFLUENCE OF RUMOURS ON SOCIAL NETWORKS USING MACHINE LEARNING ALGORITHMS AND ANALYSIS

T. C. Subash Ponraj
2020 JOURNAL OF MECHANICS OF CONTINUA AND MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES  
Both positive and negative information is spreading through online social networks. It centres on the negative data issues, for example, online rumours.  ...  Blocking of online rumour is one of the major issues in large scale social media networks.  ...  The understanding is about the secondary properties of rumour spreading. This examination shows that rumours spread generally in inefficient structures.  ...

Automatic Gossip Detection in Online Social Networks

R. Priya
2020 International Journal for Research in Applied Science and Engineering Technology  
The number of people using social networking sites such as Twitter, face book, instagram is exponentially increasing every day.  ...  We propose an algorithm to find the origin of the gossip i.e. obtain the account information of the user who first started spreading gossip on social media.  ...  In emergency or any urgent situations people tend to use social networking sites such as Twitter to spread information.  ...

Asynchronous Rumour Spreading in Social and Signed Topologies [article]

Christos Patsonakis, Mema Roussopoulos
2015 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we present an experimental analysis of the asynchronous push & pull rumour spreading protocol.  ...  to decide when to stop spreading the rumour, employing more sophisticated neighbor selection policies instead of the standard uniform random choice, and others.  ...  Our aim is to study how asynchronous rumour spreading behaves in real social network settings and to find ways to design such protocols without the need for global graph knowledge.  ...

To solve this, we use techniques from the field of rumour spreading (gossip protocols) to propagate new documents.  ...  Publishing a micro-blog then becomes a matter of replicating the micro-blog to the required number of random nodes without any central coordination.  ...  Previous work on rumour spreading usually has the goal of ensuring that the rumour spreads to the entire network at the fastest possible rate.  ...

Locating the source of interacting signal in complex networks [article]

Robert Paluch, Krzysztof Suchecki, Janusz A. Hołyst
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We investigate the problem of locating the source of a self-interacting signal spreading in a complex networks. We use a well-known rumour model as an example of the process with self-interaction.  ...  GMLA is the most resistant to harmful effects of the self-interactions, which is especially visible for medium and high level of stochasticity of the process, when spreading rate is below 0.5.  ...  Acknowledgments The work was partially supported by the National Science Centre, Poland Grant No. 2015/19-/B/ST6/02612.  ...
