Social networks

We are interested in four research issues from the social networking domain. First two challenges belong to the general social networking domain and deal with the Business-to-Consumer relationships. Namely, we are i) designing, implementing and evaluating the next generation of recommender systems – a social recommender; as well as ii) analysing effects of employing social networking as a marketing tool. Furthermore, we study how the corporate social networking can improve business practices within companies. Finally, we explore ways how the implicit social networking can be a driver of innovation in one particular industry – telecommunications.
