Abstract

The widespread popularity and adoption of social information systems ranging from social networking systems to social book marking systems has resulted in an increased research focus on studying user interactions in such systems. Recent research literature has reported on analysis of large datasets of logs of social interactions as a way to describe the structure of these systems and to characterize individual behavior. There is significantly limited research on cognitive behavior of individual users in social information systems. Research on individual behavior can help us develop nuanced perspectives of social information use and can provide insights for developing more effective systems for users.
