Abstract

Social networks can be used to find people who share similar interests or people who have knowledge in a specific domain. Using social networks to share knowledge is a very efficient way of reaching information or simply finding answers to questions. In this study we propose a model for determining the area of interests of users based on their contributions. In other words, we examine what they contribute rather than what they declare about themselves. The idea is that their value depends on what they contribute.
