Title: IDENTIFYING AND SCORING KEY INFLUENCERS IN A NETWORK
Abstract:
Some users of communications systems and social networks have more influence over other users due to having more contacts and communications with people through the systems and networks. The techniques described herein identify these more influential users. Data from such users is used to provide a scoring metric for each user, and user can be ranked according to the scoring metric. Communications can then be made to a subset of users based on the rankings.
