In the Web 2.0 era, people not only read web contents but upload, view, share and evaluate all contents on the web. This leads us to introduce a new type of social network that is based on user activity and content metadata. Moreover, we can determine the quality of related contents using this new social network. Based on this observation, we introduce a user evaluation algorithm for user-generated video sharing website such as YouTube.
