ABSTRACT
The authors' automated framework evaluates blog posts in a social-political blogosphere and, by aggregation, entire blogs according to their relevance, specificity, timeliness, and credibility. These metrics are superior to current methods in information retrieval for blogs because they better reflect the distinctive hyperlink structure of a social-political blogosphere than do other methods. The authors chose the Malaysian social-political blogosphere as a case study because of the role Malaysian bloggers played leading up to that country's 2008 general election, and afterward.
INDEX TERMS
Malaysia, political impact of blogging, relevance, specificity, timeliness, credibility, information retrieval
