Social media framework for business blog mining


  • Flora S. Tsai


The explosive proliferation of blogs and new forms of social media requires new technologies to transfer the digital realm of the blogosphere into a manageable form. In this paper, we describe a social media data mining framework for business blog mining which evaluates the ability of blog-specific properties to improve classification results in our dataset of business blogs. We find that additional information contained in bloggers and links has a positive influence on our model; however, tags and time tend to have a negative influence. Our findings have implications for future work in blog mining which can leverage blog-specific properties as well as domain knowledge of blog data to improve search and retrieval performance.
