Title
(EN) INDEXING AND ORGANIZING MESSAGES IN A MESSAGING SYSTEM USING SOCIAL NETWORK INFORMATION
(FR) INDEXATION ET ORGANISATION DE MESSAGES DANS UN SYSTÈME DE MESSAGERIE À L'AIDE D'INFORMATIONS DE RÉSEAU SOCIAL
Abstract
(EN)
A messaging system receives a message that is intended for a recipient, who is a user of a social networking system. An object associated with the message is identified based on the message content and/or metadata associated with the message. The messaging system accesses a social networking system database to obtain social information about a relationship between the recipient and the identified object. The message is then indexed using the social information, wherein an entry for the message is stored in a message index based on the social information. This process may be repeated for each received message, and multiple different message indexes may be generated for received messages to track different types of social information. A user interface for viewing messages uses the message index to organize the messages, such as to filter, categorize, and/or sort the messages in the display.
(FR)
Un système de messagerie reçoit un message à l'intention d'un destinataire qui est un utilisateur d'un système de réseau social. Un objet associé au message est identifié sur la base du contenu du message et/ou de métadonnées associées au message. Le système de messagerie accède à une base de données de système de réseau social afin d'obtenir des informations sociales sur une relation entre le destinataire et l'objet identifié. Le message est ensuite indexé à l'aide des informations sociales, une entrée pour le message étant stockée dans un index de messages sur la base des informations sociales. Ce processus peut être répété pour chaque message reçu et de multiples index de messages différents peuvent être générés pour les messages reçus afin d'avoir un suivi de différents types d'informations sociales. Une interface utilisateur permettant de visualiser des messages utilise l'index de messages afin d'organiser les messages, par exemple pour filtrer, catégoriser et/ou trier les messages sur l'affichage.
