Web 2.0 users conveniently consume content through subscribing to content generators such as Twitter users or news agencies. However, given the number of subscriptions and the rate of the subscription streams, users suffer from the information overload problem. To address this issue, we propose a novel and flexible diversification paradigm to prune redundant posts from a collection of streams. A key novelty of our diversification model is that it holistically incorporates three important dimensions of social posts, namely content, time and author. We show how different applications, such as microblogging, news or bibliographic services, require different settings for these three dimensions. Further, each dimension poses unique performance challenges towards scaling the diversification model for many users and many high-throughput streams. We show that hash-based content distance measures and graph-based author distance measures are both effective and efficient for social posts. W...
