Choose special issue: Web Intelligence and Personalization on Social Media
With the explosive growth of resources available through the Internet, information overload has become a serious issue. In particular, the emergence of social media has created highly interactive platforms for users to create, share, exchange information and build social networks, which has substantially transformed the way organizations, communities, and individuals interact with information. Social media facilitate new ways of information exchanging and sharing such as blogging, following, tagging, recommending, forwarding, commenting, etc. An enormous amount of information was generated on social media by all kinds of users all around the world. Social information sharing allows users collaborate implicitly and discover new types of knowledge by leveraging and exploiting the ‘wisdom of crowds’. However, with this very large users’ base, the massive amount of information, and the wide range of services provided by social media sites, many issues arise associated with the change of users’ lifestyle, and related to the communication among users and also between business and customers. On the other hand, users are concerned with issues such as privacy, identity theft, addiction, and social engineering attacks. Especially, with the extremely large amount of information on social media, users’ problems with information overload become more serious. Helping users to fruitfully exploit this huge amount of data to leverage their information needs has become a very important problem. Personalization represents one of the key technologies that have been developed to overcome the problem. There exists a rich and diverse ecology of social media sites which vary in terms of scope and functionality. Social media data is heterogeneous, multi-dimensional, and noisy. These distinctive features make personalization on social media a very challenging task.
The WIAS journal solicits papers reporting on original research for a special issue titled Web Intelligence and Personalization on Social Media. The special issue aims to bundle a collection of recent research outcomes, ideas, and applications related to Web intelligence, Web personalization and Web information process and management on social media in order to promote high quality research in technical and human aspects in related research areas.
