After the experience of organizing the 1st International Workshop on Social Media (papers now online), we've been organizing a special issue of the IJEC (International Journal of Electronic Commerce) on Mining Social Media. Now we release the CFP hoping to receive high quality papers on Mining Social Media:


Recently, Forrester published a report, “The Future of the Social Web” where they sketched a timeline of the development of the Social Web, dividing its evolution in 5 eras. According to that report, the first era of the development of the Social Web started to explode the social relationships among users. Then, in the social functionality era, these social relationships resulted in the social functionality era where several websites started to add social functionalities in order to help users to interact with their peers. We are now in the era of Social Colonization, where technologies like Facebook Connect or Google Friend Connect have standardized social functionalities among websites and a vast majority of websites now include several social functionalities. Soon these federated identities will empower people to enter the era of social context with personalized and social content, and the development of tools for personalize social content will aim the development of the era of social commerce.

The primary goal of the proposed special issue of International Journal of Electronic Commerce is to foster research in the interplay between Social Media, Data Mining and Electronic Commerce, trying to reflect the actual developments on technologies that fit on the Social Context era.

I comment whenever I appreciate a post on a blog or if I have something to valuable to contribute to the conversation.
It's a result of the passion communicated in the article I looked at. And after this article "CFP: Special Issue of International Journal of Electronic Commerce on Mining Social Media". I was actually moved enough to post a thought :) I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright.

Is it simply me or does it appear like some of the
remarks appear like left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing
at additional online social sites, I would like to keep
up with everything new you have to post. Could you list every one of your public sites like your Facebook
page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

Where To Buy Raspberry KetoneYou can find number known Raspberry Ketones Diet Pills unwanted effects.
This really is one of the reasons for the product's huge popularity and sales. It is a naturally safe product just as it is intensely powerful in helping you lose all your excess fat in the torso. But this is not to completely discount the possibility of any negative effects of the product.
