Community Discovery and Analysis in Blogspace
Weblog has quickly evolved into a new information and knowledge dissemination channel. Yet it is not easy to discover weblog communities through keyword search. The main contribution of this paper is the study of weblog communities from the perspective of social network analysis. We proposed a new way of collecting and preparing data for weblog community discovery. The data collection focuses on gaining knowledge of the strength of social ties between weblogs. The tie strength data and the clustering feature of social network guided the discovery of weblog communities.
