Co-Participation Networks Using Comment Information
Keywords:comment mining, social networks, bookmarking
Using comment information available from Digg we define a co-participation network between users. We focus on the analysis of this implicit network, and study the behavioral characteristics of users. We use the comment data and social network derived features to predict the popularity of online content linked at Digg using a classification and regression framework. We also compare network properties of our co-participation network to a previously defined reply-answer network on news forums.
