A Novel Approach for Social Behavior Analysis of the Blogosphere
The web, as a real mass medium, has become an invaluable data source for Information Extraction and Retrieval systems. Digital authoring is a relatively new style of communication, usually facilitated by computer networks and the Internet. We believe that the behavior of the people in cyberspace can be a representative of the real social behaviors and that this data can be employed to analyze the behavior of a society. In this paper we have used blogs as the main representative of this digital data. A system of blog analyzing, named Blogizer, has been designed to analyze these blogs. The system employs two specific measurements to determine the level of citizen engagement. The detailed analysis and the proof of concept case study provides promising results. Based on the obtained results, more than 70.52% of the topic assignments and 58.10% of the significance assignments were ascribed successfully.1
