Personalized Information Delivering Service in Blog-Like Digital Libraries

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 4312)


With increasing concerns about the personalized digital libraries (e.g., blogs), people need to share relevant information and knowledge with other like-minded users. In this paper, we aim at building a grid environment for information recommendation, in order to support users’ information searching tasks. By thoroughly analyzing the social linkage and social interaction patterns, we want to extract the meaningful relationships between the unknown users by co-occurrence analysis. Therefore, social grid environment can be constructed by aggregating a set of virtual hubs discovered from the hidden connections. For implementation and evaluation, we exploit the proposed method to blogosphere. The BlogGrid framework is proposed to provide efficient information pushing service to bloggers without requesting any user intervention.
