Uldis Bojars, Andreas Harth, Sheila Kinsella, Srinivas Raghavendra "An Empirical Investigation of Networks in the Blogosphere", International Conference on Weblogs and Social Media (ICWSM 2007), 2007.
We seek out to investigate the social networks manifested in weblogs. Our dataset, derived from an initial list of URIs, consists of 3.9M files in XML or RDF format, totaling over 400M statements in RDF. We continue by applying well-known network analysis algorithm to parts of the derived net- work. Our experiments show that links analysis algorithms benefit from input in a common, structured data model.
