Explanation Requested - User User Network co-likes & co-comments

Oct 11, 2013 at 4:34 AM
Hi!

I've been trying to import the network that links user to user based on their liking to the comments towards the wall posts. And I'm a bit confused. Please do kindly explain the concept behind user-user network based on both co-likes and co-comments. What are the differences between both? Is it the same with post-post network as per this discussion, http://socialnetimporter.codeplex.com/discussions/440452

Appreciate the explanation. Thanks.

Kind rgds,

Hello Adib,

The idea behind User-User network is the same as the one described in the link you posted about Post-Post network so:

Users are vertices and there exists and edge between two users if:
  1. They have liked the same post (co-like)
  2. They have commented the same post (co-comment)
Hope this helps!

Regards,

Arber
