Friends Wall: A Semantic-based Friend Recommendation System for Social Networks

Mr. Raj Agarwal, Mr. Swaranjeet Singh, Ms. Samiksha Bhujbal, Ms. Pooja Jadhav, Prof. Wanaskar U.H.
2017 IJARCCE  
Present social networking services suggest friends to users based on their social activities, which may not be the most suitable to react a users taste on friend choice in real life.  ...  In this project, we present Friendswall, a semanticbased friend recommendation system for social networks, which present friends to users based on their life styles instead of social activities.  ...  We specially thank to those who helped us directly-indirectly in completion of this work successfully.  ...
