Abstract

One of the most interesting challenges in the area of social computing and social media analysis is the so-called community analysis. A well known barrier in cross-community (multiple website) analysis is the disconnectedness of these websites. In this paper, our aim is to provide evidence on the existence of a mapping among identities across multiple communities, providing a method for connecting these websites. Our studies have shown that simple, yet effective approaches, which leverage social media's collective patterns can be utilized to find such a mapping. The employed methods successfully reveal this mapping with 66% accuracy.
