This paper proposes to exploit author-defined tags and social interaction data (commenting and sharing news items) in news recommendation. Moreover it presents a hybrid news recommender which suggest news items on the basis of the reader’s short and long-term reading history, taking reading trends and short-term interests into account. The experimental results we carried out provided encouraging results about the accuracy of the recommendations.
