Random Set

Social Network - Digg Scatter plot of the number of friends (contacts) vs reverse friends (contacts) for (a) the top 1020 Digg users

Social Networks - Flicker Scatter plot of the number of friends (contacts) vs reverse friends (contacts) for 1100 Flickr users from the Apex, Explore and Random datasets story.

Social browsing on Digg Strength of the linear correlation coefficient between user’s success rate and the number of friends and reverse friends he has.

Number of voters who are also among the reverse friends of the user who submitted the story.

Claim 1: Users digg stories their friends submit Figure 5(b) Calculated Probability probability that k of submitter’s reverse friends could have voted on the story purely by chance. P = 0.005 By enabling users to quickly digg stories submitted by friends, social networks play an important role in promoting stories to the front page.

Users digg stories their friends submit

Claim 2: Users digg stories their friends digg m=1 user who submitted the story m=6 story’s submitter and the first five users to digg it Number of stories posted by poorly-connected users that were made visible to others by digging activities of well-connected users, (b) dugg by friends of the first m diggers within the next 25 diggs, and for the stories that were dugg by friends, (c) the average probability that the observed numbers of friends dugg the story by chance The data indicates that users do use the “see the stories my friends have dugg” portion of the Friends interface to find new interesting stories.

(c) the average probability that the observed numbers of friends dugg the story by chance

Social browsing in Flicker Pools and tags Pool: When users upload images to Flickr, they have an option to share them with different groups, each with its own image pool. Tags: users tags images with keywords which help to improve search of the user’s own, as well as other people’s, images

Pools and tags

Pool: When users upload images to Flickr, they have an option to share them with different groups, each with its own image pool.

Tags: users tags images with keywords which help to improve search of the user’s own, as well as other people’s, images

Histogram of the number of pools to which images from each set were submitted

Histogram of the number of tags assigned to the images

It represents: There is considerable effort involved in sharing an image with a group, suggesting that social aspects of Flickr, such as sharing images with other users through groups and increasing the visibility of an image is very important to users, possibly more than being able to easily find them with tags.

Social Networks & Comments Names of users who commented on images in the three datasets were collected and compared them to the names of users in the image owners’ social networks.

Names of users who commented on images in the three datasets were collected and compared them to the names of users in the image owners’ social networks.

Proportion of comments that came from the submitting user’s reverse contacts, mutual contacts and strangers vs the number of pools to which the image was submitted for the three datasets.
