The Mechanics of Network Formation and Diffusion of Topics in Social Media Sites
Today's online social networks and social media sites contain a combination of
social and informational ties that serve as bridges for different types of
information to flow. An example of such a social network is Twitter, where
many users follow both their friends as well as others that they may not know;
celebrities, news media accounts, and politicians. In this talk, I will
discuss aspects of how these networks form and how different topics diffuse
differently through them. I will also show how studying network formation and
information diffusion on social media sites can be useful for gaining
sociological insights as well as improving the sites.
