Social network mining

Student: Nagy Norbert

Social network is a term used to describe web-based services that allow individuals to create a public/semi-public profile within a domain such
that they can communicate with other users within the network.

Social media gives users an easy-to-use way to communicate and network with each other on an unprecedented scale.

Facebook offers this kind of social network service. As of the first quarter of 2018, Facebook had 2.19 billion monthly active users.

Social network mining is extracting information from social media.

Primary objectives of the data mining process are to effectively handle large-scale data, extract actionable patterns, and gain insightful knowledge.

Data mining of social media can expand researchers’ capability of understanding new phenomena to provide better services and develop innovative opportunities such as make the user heard or improve the users experience, market analytics etc.
