Credible Information Foraging on Social Media

In this paper, an Information Foraging based approach that offers social media's users the ability to get relevant and credible information is proposed. A Social Media Information Foraging System is developed in order to operate on social graphs taking into account the users’ interests and their social relations and interactions. To evaluate the performance of the system, a dataset was built using real data extracted from the information sharing network Twitter. The results consist in surfing paths leading to relevant information taking into consideration the user’s information needs and the credibility of the information.
