Article: Patterns and Dynamics of Users’ Behaviour and Interaction: Network Analysis of an Online Community
A paper called “Patterns and Dynamics of Users’ Behaviour and Interaction: Network Analysis of an Online Community” that I have co-authored will be published in the Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology (JASIST). In this paper, we studied the evolution of a variety of properties in an online community, including how users create, reciprocate, and deepen relationships with one another, variations in users’ gregariousness and popularity, reachability and typical distances among users, and the degree of local redundancy in the community.
The generalisation of the local clustering coefficient to weighted networks by Barrat et al. (2004) considers the value of a triplet to be the average of the weights attached to the two ties that make up the triplet. In this post, I suggest three additional methods for defining the triplet value.
