[Conference News] Online Behavior: What Does the Twitter Research Show?

Social networks have been around as long as humans have organized themselves into groups, but the digital age has given them an unprecedented medium to flourish. Twitter is the most widely used of the online social network in scientific analysis, so researchers from Vrije University Amsterdam and Twente University used it to conduct a comprehensive literature review to answer two questions: “What is the state of the art in both describing and explaining online behavior in Twitter?” and, based on the results, “What future research appears to be the most promising?” Their results appear in a paper presented at the 2012 IEEE 12th International Conference on Data Mining Workshops (ICDMW 12).

"Online Social Behavior in Twitter: A Literature Review" and other ICDMW 12 papers are available free to IEEE Computer Society members and subscribers to the Computer Society Digital Library.
