Abstract

Social application is widely used right now, and we receive a mount of messages everyday from our contacts, some topics is so hot and has been forwarded or resent for several times, so that similar messages maybe popped up from time to time, which leads to an extra cost to user, including time and money. Within this invention, we use a reasonable method to detect and aggregate the same kind messages, by considering the format of the message, we conclude three scenarios: For the message which contains a URL(Uniform Resource Locator ), we use a URL inspector to the check the new arrived messages and comparing within the message pool to decide if it belongs to the same origin and prepare to aggregate. For the message which is composed by the same author and forwarded for several times by different social contacts, we use a tag marker to add tags to each message's property including it's author information and creating time etc, when the message fly among user contacts, and we check the property of the each new arrived message and comparing within the message pool to decide if it belongs to the same origin and prepare to aggregate For the rest of the messages which may be composed by different author but with the same content, we use a content comparing tool the justify if it belongs to the scope of aggregated message within the message pool. The message pool which use to compare in could be coming from network space of the server side or from local cache which has a configurable update frequency. The aggregated message will be incremented from time to time so that to display the different author and comment information, it will always show on top of the message items if newly arrived message belong to the same kind, thus make a clear social application view and an intelligent cost-saving system

day from our contacts, including text, pictures, news or story links, some of the message is so

popular that it will be forwarded by many people, so, as a center among all the contacts in the

relationship network, it will be possible to receive several same topics which forwarded by two

or more contacts, thus somehow lead to a kind of waste , both for time and money(cost of

data stream)

This invention propose a method to manage the duplicated topics to save the cost and make

the message flow more clear and effective

Core Idea:

The invention provide two method to handle duplicate forwarded messages separately based

on the origin of the message data

For the message coming from same origin, this invention provide a link manager to compose

the new duplicated message

For the message coming from different origin, this invention provide a content manager to

compose the new duplicated message

Claim Points:

1. Using a link manager to compose the new duplicated message for which coming from the same origin.

2. Using a content manager to compose the new duplicated message for which coming from different origin

3. A cost-saving configuration for user to handle the new duplicated message

Technical Infrastructure:

1.Each message will be tagged once it is forwarded, and the tag could be propagated, and the propagation info...
