Social Media and Social Computing Book Series

with Taylor and Francis

Irwin King, Series Editor


The Social Media and Social Computing Series focuses on publishing high quality references in the rapidly emerging area of social media and social computing. Both experimental/practical as well as theoretical investigations are welcome. The series targets both scholars and practitioners in social media and social computing for work in the intersection of computer science, information technology, psychology, economics, education and other social sciences. The advent of the Internet and the Web has resulted in social interactions and behaviors through the use of technologies and web services, e.g., hardware devices such as smart phones, tablets, RFID, etc., software services such as wikis, blogs, micro-blogs, social network sites, recommender systems, social bookmarking, social news, multimedia sharing sites, etc. Analyzing these technologically- enabled interactions in their social context will benefit information providers and information consumers. However, the large volume and scale of user-generated contents require effective modeling methods and efficient algorithms to handle these chalenging problems.
