Abstract

Influential user can play a crucial role in online social networks. This paper documents an empirical study aiming at exploring the effects of influential users in the context of music social network. To achieve this goal, music diflusion graph is developed to model how information propagates over network. We also propose a heuristic method to measure users' influences. Using the real data from Last:fm, our empirical test demonstrates key effects of in uentialflusers and reveals limitations of existing influence identifi cation/characterization schemes.
