Title
(EN) Determining Presence Of A User In An Online Environment
Abstract
(EN)

Disclosed herein is a computer implemented method and system for determining presence of a first user by a second user in an online environment. The first user provides the first user's profile information and characteristic information. The first user marks keywords in the characteristic information. The first user marks the keywords based on inference of second user's knowledge about the first user. The marked keywords are categorized into predefined categories. The second user provides search words. The search words are compared with the characteristic information and the keywords to find matches. The matches are weighted. Search indexes are generated for the weighted matches based on a predetermined criterion. The weighted matches with the generated search indexes are provided to the second user. The selected profile information corresponding to the predefined categories comprising the categorized keywords for which the weighted matches have high search indexes, is displayed to the second user.
