Abstract

With the growing number of social network sites, communities, a user may join more than one social network site that have similar function. But usually there is no relationship between social networks. This would result in-convenience for users, e.g a senior user in community A is treated as junior in community B. In this paper, a proposal of managing communities using system analysis is presented. Sister communities create a trust relationship. In the trust relationship, communities share user information to each other. The system will bring good users experience. Besides, it benifits communitis management.

System to Manage Communities using Sister Analysis

With the growing number of social network sites, communities, a user may join more than one social network site that have similar function. But usually there is no relationship between social networks. So when a senior user in community A joined community B, he is treated as a junior user at beginning as community B knows nothing about the user. From security view, community B gives limited access to him. As a result, he can only do limited things in community B. It is a bad experience, and it would be nice that administrator dynamically set authorities to user according to his behavior in other social network sites. Also it benefits the communities if administrator can do some precautions when a studied user plays bad in sister community.

                                                                  e.g. Ascertain who is good at what in community 1... (e.g. User1 is good at moderation... user3 is good at article creation.... user4 is good at posting.... user4 is bad at spelling...)

The analysis will influence what a user can do in the sister community. The system will dynamically set user attributes and behaviors and preferences and control records, such as access control attributes to a studied user based on the analysis. Also community administrator can dynamically set user attribute based on the analysis.

For example, Community-A and Community-B build trust relationship. They share user behavior data to each other. Bill has joined Community-A for one year and posted many articles on middleware development. The system gets behavior data from Community-A and ascertain Bill is an middleware expert. When Bill joined Community-B, he is a studies user though he is new to Community-B. Community-B will set based attributes and behaviors based on the analysis result, such as preferential access to social communities or access to posts.

Another typical scenario is that A user in Community-A plays bad by cheating others. They system detects it and alert Community-B administrator. Thus Community-B administrator can a...
