Friendbook: A Semantic-Based Friend Recommendation System for Social Networks
Abstract— Friendbook: A Semantic-Based Friend Recommendation System for Social Networks. Existing social networking services recommend friends to users based on their social graphs, which may not be the most appropriate to reﬂect a user’s preferences on friend selection in real life. In this paper, we present Friendbook, a novel semantic-based friend < Final Year Projects 2016 > recommendation >system for social networks, which recommends friends to users based on their life styles instead of social graphs. By taking advantage of sensor-rich smartphones, Friendbook discovers life styles of users from user-centric sensor data, measures the similarity of life styles between users, and recommends friends to users if their life styles have high similarity. Inspired by text mining, we model a user’s daily life as life documents, from which his/her life styles are extracted by using the Latent Dirichlet Allocation algorithm. We further propose a similarity metric to measure the similarity of life styles between users, and calculate users’ impact in terms of life styles with a friend-matching graph.
