Track on Social Network and Media Analysis and Mining (SNMAM) Español English

Online social networks are web platforms that provide a variety of services. Users may: share locations and community activities, post and tag photos and other media content, as well as contact individuals with similar interests. The rapid growth of social networks, as well as the rapid increase in social media consumption and production have made the analysis of social media and networks a hot topic amongst academic researchers and industry practitioners alike.
