Advancements in communication and computing technologies allow people located geographically apart to meet on a common platform to share information with each other. Social networking sites play an important role in this aspect. A lot of information can be inferred from such networks if the data is analyzed appropriately by applying a relevant data mining method. The proposed work concentrates on leveraging the connection information of the nodes in a social network for the prediction of social dimensions of new nodes joining the social network. In this work, an edge clustering algorithm and a multilabel classification algorithm are proposed to predict the social dimensions of the nodes joining an existing social network. The results of the proposed algorithms are found out to be satisfactory.
