Come join us for refreshments and great conversation!
The term “social graph” was coined originally to describe the network of connections we already knew we had such as friends on Facebook or professional contacts on LinkedIn.
More recently, graphs that are inferred as a result of other primary activities – e.g. taking a photo in a bar (Color), commenting on a website (Disqus), expressing a taste preference (Hunch), sharing a new website (StumbleUpon), etc. – have emerged in a big way, particularly in advancing discovery and recommendations. Even platforms for which explicit connections are core – e.g. Twitter, Tumblr, Foursquare and others – are realizing the value in the implicit relationships that form over time.
We are hoping to generate a great discussion around Social Discovery and the Implicit Graph around the following agenda;
- Intro & Agenda
- Social Graph Classification
- Implicit Graph Definition
- Key Input Signals
- Social Discovery: Key Applications
This is a discussion based event hosted by the folks below but will be interactive throughout the event
