Extraction Of Users Life Styles For Buddy Recommendation In Social Network

M vamsi Krishna, P Naga Nuka Ratnam


Friend-book is a novel semantic-based friend recommendation system for social networks which recommends friends to users based on their life styles as a substitute of social graphs. Friend-book can help mobile phone users find friends whichever among strangers or within a certain group as long as they share similar life styles. Friend-book assumes a client-server mode where each client is a smart phone carried by a user and the servers are data centres or clouds. With this module the accuracy of friend recommendation can be improved.
