Implications of the Social Web Environment for User Story Education

Implications of the Social Web Environment for User Story Education

Social Web Aspect: In setting-up meeting(s) among students, or between students and ‘users’, accommodating the preferences of each participant can be challenging. The responsibility of finding common date(s) and time(s) often rests solely on the person setting-up the meeting. The logistics of the conventional process can also be unnecessarily time-consuming. The use of Social Web applications such as Doodle (http://www.doodle.com/) and Google Calendar (http://www.google.com/calendar/) can facilitate the arrangement of such meeting(s). These applications have a number of features, including calendar sharing by the participants. Figure 5 illustrates a snapshot of a meeting being scheduled using Doodle to discuss the development of user stories between students S1 and S2, and potential ‘user’ U1.

THE CHALLENGES OF SENTIMENT ANALYSIS ON SOCIAL WEB COMMUNITIES

THE CHALLENGES OF SENTIMENT ANALYSIS ON SOCIAL WEB COMMUNITIES

Social web communities are characterized by anonymity of their users, the anonymity of user’s identity may be used to in fraud other users on web communities. Organizations may use opinion spammers to post fake positive opinions or reviews to promote their products, or fake negative opinions to discredit their competitors, this also true for individuals in political domain or any other domains where the posted opinions about targeted events can influence the evaluation of events from the reader. The challenge is that it is hard to differentiate the fake opinion from non spam opinions by reading it manually. The issue for sentiment analysis is to develop the appropriate techniques and advance algorithms for detecting and filtering out the faked opinions in the collected dataset. Supervised and unsupervised methods for spam opinions detections methods [13] have been discussed.

To Web 3. 0, the Contribution of Semantic Web to the Social Web

To Web 3. 0, the Contribution of Semantic Web to the Social Web

In a most helpful starting point, the Semantic Web attempts to make social websites interoperable by providing standards to support data interchange between applications, empowering individuals and communities to partake in the construction of shared interoperable information. This adaption of the Semantic Web to the Social Web gives rise to either a social Semantic Web. Fig. 1 paradigms to evolve a web 3.0. Thereby the two different kinds of indexing (manual vs. automatic) are represented by the horizontal axis and the two different kind of knowledge organization (expert vs. community) by the vertical axis , the libraries were the first to use expert-based manual knowledge organization. The ideas described were either motivated by a community-based knowledge organization or by an automatic indexing of the data by computers. Nowadays the Social Semantic Web can connect these ideas and generate a symbiosis of collective intelligence between humans and computers.

The Social Web of Things (SWoT) - Structuring an Integrated Social Network for Human, Things and Services

The Social Web of Things (SWoT) - Structuring an Integrated Social Network for Human, Things and Services

Abstract— In recent years, the development of IOT (Internet of Things) technology has given people many ways to obtain information through various types of physical devices. In parallel with that trend, people rely more on context-aware service and devices in many aspects, such as health care and elderly home care. However, traditional sensors are typically locked into closed systems, which hinder the access to such sensors that can be available in other information systems. Establishing free communication between human and physical things will help build a network with hy- brid intelligence and amazing services. In order to share information and enable the communication between both physical devices and human, we proposed a SWoT (Social Web of Thing) framework in this paper that establishes social networking between embedded devices, services and human. Through the supernetwork approach, we discussed the service discovery in the SWoT system with heterogeneous social relations. At last, we introduced the MagicHome prototype of SWoT.

Comprehensive Annotation of Multiword Expressions in a Social Web Corpus

Comprehensive Annotation of Multiword Expressions in a Social Web Corpus

Multiword expressions (MWEs) are quite frequent in languages such as English, but their diversity, the scarcity of individual MWE types, and contextual ambiguity have presented obstacles to corpus-based studies and NLP systems addressing them as a class. Here we advocate for a comprehensive annotation approach: proceeding sentence by sentence, our annotators manually group tokens into MWEs according to guidelines that cover a broad range of multiword phenomena. Under this scheme, we have fully annotated an English web corpus for multiword expressions, including those containing gaps.

Cross System User Modeling and Personalization on the Social Web

Cross System User Modeling and Personalization on the Social Web

In the most recent decade, many sorts of interpersonal interaction destinations have developed and contributed mas- sively to extensive volumes of genuine information on social practices. Twitter 1, the biggest micro blog benefit, has more than 600 million clients and creates upwards of 340 million tweets for each day [1]. Microblog2, the essential Twitter- style Chinese micro blog site, has more than500 million records and creates well more than 100 million tweets for every day [2]. Because of these qualities of online web- based social networking systems (SMNs), individuals tend to utilize diverse SMNs for various purposes. For example, Facebook-style yet autonomous SMN is utilized as a part of China for web journals, while Sina Micro blog is utilized to share statuses. As it were, each existent SMN fulfills some client needs. Regarding SMN administration, coordinating mysterious clients crosswise over various SMN stages can give incorporated points of interest on every client and educate relating controls, for example, focusing on administrations arrangements. In principle, the cross-stage investigations permit a bird’s-eye perspective of SMN client practices. Be that as it may, about all late SMN-construct ponders center with respect to a solitary SMN stage, yielding inadequate information. Consequently, this review researches the technique of intersection different SMN stages to illustrate these practices. In any case, cross-stage examine faces various difficulties. With the development of SMN stages on the Internet, the cross-stage approach has combined different SMN stages to make wealthier crude information and more total SMNs for social figuring undertakings. SMN clients frame the characteristic scaffolds for these SMN stages. The essential point for cross-stage SMN research is client distinguishing proof for various SMNs. Investigation of this theme establishes a framework for further cross-stage SMN examine.

On the Promotion of the Social Web Intelligence

On the Promotion of the Social Web Intelligence

The first part of the dissertation is focused on the phenomenon of social privacy. This work is mainly motivated by the privacy dichotomy problem. Users often face di ffi cul- ties specifying privacy policies that are consistent with their actual privacy concerns and attitudes. As such, before making use of social data, it is imperative to employ multiple safeguards beyond the current privacy settings of users. As a possible solution, we utilize user social footprints to detect their privacy preferences automatically. An unsupervised collaborative filtering approach is proposed to characterize the attributes of publicly avail- able accounts that are intended to be private. Unlike the majority of earlier studies, a variety of social data types is taken into account, including the social context, the published con- tent, as well as the profile attributes of users. Our approach can provide support in making an informed decision whether to exploit one’s publicly available data to draw intelligence. With the aim of gaining insight into the strategies behind online reasoning, the second part of the dissertation studies written comments in online deliberations. Specifically, we explore di ff erent dimensions of the language, the temporal aspects of the communication, as well as the attributes of the participating users to understand what makes people change their beliefs. In addition, we investigate the factors that are perceived to be the reasons behind persuasion by the users. We link our findings to traditional persuasion research, hoping to uncover when and how they apply to online persuasion. A set of rhetorical rela- tions is known to be of importance in persuasive discourse. We further study the automatic identification and disambiguation of such rhetorical relations, aiming to take a step closer towards automatic analysis of reasoning traces in online platforms. Finally, a small proof of concept tool is presented, showing the value of our persuasion and rhetoric studies.

User Profile Data on the Social Semantic Web (UWeb)

User Profile Data on the Social Semantic Web (UWeb)

Abstract. User profiles constructed on Social Web platforms are often motivated by the need to maximise user reputation within a community. Subscriber, or follower, counts are an indicator of the influence and stand- ing that the user has, where greater values indicate a greater perception or regard for what the user has to say or share. However, at present there lacks an understanding of the factors that lead to an increase in such au- dience levels, and how a user’s behaviour can affect their reputation. In this paper we attempt to fill this gap, by examining data collected from YouTube over regular time intervals. We explore the correlation between the subscriber counts and several behaviour features - extracted from both the user’s profile and the content they have shared. Through the use of a Multiple Linear Regression model we are able to forecast the audience levels that users will yield based on observed behaviour. Com- bining such a model with an exhaustive feature selection process, we yield statistically significant performance over a baseline model containing all features.

SSWP: A Social Semantic Web Portal for Effective Communication in Construction

SSWP: A Social Semantic Web Portal for Effective Communication in Construction

Abstract—In the construction industry, there is a pressing need for computer systems that will facilitate information exchange and knowledge sharing among all industry practitioners. The Social Semantic Web Portal (SSWP) proposed in this paper will accomplish three tasks: (1) the streamlining of information exchange about any individual project, (2) the encouragement of knowledge sharing in general, and (3) the virtual grouping of people with similar interests to form communities of practice. A domain ontology is developed in order to encapsulate knowledge about industrial actors and their roles in relation to sibling ontologies that conceptualize construction products and processes. This domain ontology is then tailored to be the cornerstone (the knowledge base) that will enable the semantics of Web services. The concept of the Social Web is employed to validate knowledge items and to connect users with similar interests. The information flow is realized through a content-based publish/subscribe system. The SSWP will semantically connect a user with knowledge items and socially link a user to his/her peers.

MARKETING LIBRARY RESOURCES AND SERVICES WITH WEB TECHNOLOGY AND SOCIAL MEDIA

MARKETING LIBRARY RESOURCES AND SERVICES WITH WEB TECHNOLOGY AND SOCIAL MEDIA

It can be concluded that academic libraries in Nigeria are evolving in the development of marketing web- based information resources via the library website. They should develop robust user-centred web-based interfaces that not only provide patrons with access to online catalogues, subscribed resources and other electronic content, but also create virtual environments which enable patrons to contribute to the selection of these collections, to channel the delivery of value-added services, to engage in two way communication with library staff and, in some cases, to even collaborate with other library users.

Social-network tools for the assessment of the university web performance

Social-network tools for the assessment of the university web performance

However, Webometrics have to face the volatile nature of the Web in which the contents appear, change and vanish in a short time period (Ortega et al. 2006) and where a rate of web page disappear- ance of 0.25% to 0.50% per week evidences a highly changing world (Fetterly et al. 2003). This instability attracted the attention of many studies that try to understand such phenomena, investigating the ephemeral existence of incoming links in e-journals (Harter and Kim 1996), web citations in scientific repositories (Lawrence et al. 2001) and web content decay (Payne and Thelwall 2008). These studies can be defined as Web demography because they observe the web as a population of contents that born, growth and dead along the time. In this way there are studies that calculate the age of the Web (Ortega et al. 2009) the ratio of change of web pages (Cho and Gar- cía-Molina 2000) or the death of web pages (Koehler 2004).

Social network theory, broadband and the future of the World Wide Web

Social network theory, broadband and the future of the World Wide Web

A dichotomy exists between the literature on social network theory which tends to deal with links between individuals or firms which are often cheap to initiate, and so the de facto cost may come in terms of congestion or complexity, and physical networks where links are often very expensive to build and maintain and hence have a high direct cost. Take for instance the decision to make a work colleague aware of your area of expertise, versus the decision to build a new road, gas pipeline, or railway line. The big cost in the first case might be the concern that once identified you might face a greater work-load, in terms of the second case there is a considerable cost even to building the link. The Internet provides an interesting hybrid. It is a genuinely physical network, but one where connecting to a given existing network is relatively cheap in terms of direct cost, with much of the analysis taking place in terms of associated costs like complexity or network externality effects on others which might seem more relevant concerns for the social network literature.

extraction tool to get the rough information about i-SSIS entities. For example, when the blog of a person Bob is processed, the biography, the affiliation, the occupation and the important social relations are extracted to con- struct his basic information. Secondly, various informa- tion of each entity is identified and condensed to generate entity objects in i-SSIS, as the data collection result of entities. As previously mentioned, in INM the entity is presented as a single object. However, it is common in information extraction that a single entity, e.g., a person, is described in different document fragments from dif- ferent aspects. Therefore, in this layer, data mining tools and other analyzing tools are used to combine the infor- mation about distinct entities and formulate it into a pre- defined schema of i-SSIS entities. Thirdly, the entity and relationship data collected from the Web are integrated with the conventional social security data. The latter is collected from social security databases through common interfaces or extraction tools of deep Web. By combining the data on entities, the integrated data warehouse can provide a consistent and comprehensive description to the entities involved in social security. After the three procedures, the Web-oriented social security data is fi- nally gathered and provided to the Data Management layer.

Aggregation of Categorized Internet Web Content in the Social Circle of a User

Aggregation of Categorized Internet Web Content in the Social Circle of a User

The usage of internet has grown exponentially in the past few years. Not only the amount of data that is being consumed but also the span of audience has widened. With the growing age, there is a need for tracking and reporting the internet content consumed by an individual, by a group and by the complete society in general. There are many applications that work on similar lines and track internet consumption at individual levels. Also the global tracking is being done by big shots in the technology but nothing is being done at a group level. We have come up with an application that not only tracks the usage for a group of people connected together by some purpose, but also categorizes it into various categories. Such an application can have a lot of practical usage for various subsections of society. It can be used as a vigilance tool, as a suggestion mechanism for social searching, for a group of students studying together in a class or anywhere else where a collection of internet content can be useful.

Responsabilidad social en la comunicación con la web

Responsabilidad social en la comunicación con la web

Siguiendo por la línea de las variadas formas de pensamiento y comportamiento nuestra exploración buscaba ver en que otro ámbito se desarrollaba la responsabilidad social y llegamos a la relación; nuevas tecnologías-sociedad, en otras palabras, ciberculturas. Las nuevas tecnologías han significado grandes cambios para la humanidad desde que empezaron a formar parte de la vida de las personas. Al crear nuevas formas de comunicación, hábitos de interacción y relaciones maquina-humano, han provocado una serie de comportamientos y formas diferentes de pensar (McLaren, 1994, Rueda, 2008, Rueda y Quintana, (2007). De acuerdo con Rueda (2008), el origen del termino cibercultura implica toda una re significación de la información, la comunicación y el conocimiento. Este proceso se puede dar mediante la investigación, la producción, organización y la administración de la información integrando materiales simbólicos que tienen que ver con agentes, prácticas, interacciones y comunicaciones, colectivos, instituciones, sistemas organizativos, multiplicidad de contenidos, valores, significados, interpretaciones y legitimaciones lo cual lo hace un ejercicio multidimensional y complejo.

Information Security Threat, Social Networks, Anonymity, Web 2.0.

Information Security Threat, Social Networks, Anonymity, Web 2.0.

The “Storm” group of malware is appropriately named, as it storms users on a peer-to-peer basis by sending seemingly innocuous emails asking the user to open a hard to resist implicating links like “man you have got to tell me where you picked her up. I saw this on the web, it has to be you, check it out yourself” which seems to direct the identified user to a YouTube video. Many would be tempted to click on the link which actually directs them to a storm node (Ironport, 2008). What makes this example of Storm especially relevant to the premise of the paper is that it is reusable (and easily perpetuated) for many kinds of other attacks, particularly when posted on social networks.

Use of Questions to Facilitate Social Learning in a Web 2.0 Environment

Use of Questions to Facilitate Social Learning in a Web 2.0 Environment

En el aprendizaje social en línea participan alumnos distribuidos que interactúan entre sí mediante la web 2.0. En muchos casos, las interacciones en la web 2.0 se limitan al intercambio de información y no pro- mueven el desarrollo de conocimientos. Los estudios sobre mapas conceptuales sugieren que incorporar preguntas en el aprendizaje social podría favorecer una mayor interacción, aunque posiblemente esto de- penderá de las condiciones afectivas y del esfuerzo que se invierta al plantear las preguntas y responderlas. Para investigar este supuesto, se han estudiado las interacciones de 1.229 personas inscritas en un sitio web durante un período de 11 semanas. También se han recopilado los datos extraídos de un cuestionario que se pasó a todos los participantes, así como las reacciones obtenidas en el transcurso del proyecto. Estos datos se han analizado temáticamente para investigar cómo pueden usarse las preguntas para facilitar el aprendizaje en un entorno de web 2.0. Los análisis han demostrado que los participantes estaban más interesados en temas, asuntos y cuestiones generales que en las preguntas específicas sobre cada ámbito. Los miembros de la plataforma han planteado de modo distinto las preguntas relacionadas con la comu- nidad y el uso del sitio web que las preguntas que les permitían conocer más a fondo ciertos contenidos y áreas temáticas. El uso social de preguntas en línea se ha identificado como una interacción de aprendiza- je significativa y complementaria en nueve aspectos diferenciados.

Ranking Radically Influential Web Forum users on Social Media

Ranking Radically Influential Web Forum users on Social Media

Social media is a form of internet marketing that utilizes social networking websites as a marketing tool. The goal of social networking is to produce content that users will share with their social network help a company increase brand exposure and broaden customer reach. In the recent past, it has been found that the web is also being used as a tool by radical or extremist groups and users to practice several kinds of mischievous acts with concealed agendas and promote ideologies in a sophisticated manner. Some of the web forums are predominantly being used for open discussions on critical issues influenced by radical thoughts. The influential users dominate and influence the newly joined innocent users through their radical thoughts. The radical of a user is captured by a measure based on the degree of match of the commented posts with a threat list. Eleven different collocation metrics are formulated to identify the association among users, and they are finally embedded in a customized Page Rank algorithm to generate a ranked list of radically influential users. Social media is very popular for different kind of activities. In this system web forum users contain for complete analysis of forums for manipulating the information post by users in forum. User of such forum talk about the violence data through their post, there are numbers of website are also available that are spreading such data. The reality is that system not successfully defined violence present
