With the rapid development of information technology such as social media, online communities, and mobile communications, huge volumes of digital data are accumulated with data entities involving complex relationships. These data are usually modelled as graphs in view of the simple yet strong expressive power of graph model; that is, entities are represented by vertices and relationships are represented by edges.
