Cartography and evolution of the Reddit landscape using graph-based methods
MetadataVis full innførsel
People are spending more time than ever on social media sites and platforms, and a vast amount of information is collected with every click. All of this information can be used to map how users behave and interact, along with their interests. In this short thesis, we attempt to shed light on how the communities on Reddit evolve over time. Two different community detection algorithms are applied to the networks created from the user activity on Reddit in the time span of 2005 to 2019. These communities are further explored to determine the quality of the detected communities, the dynamics that occur over time, and if real-world events are reflected in the user activity on Reddit.
