Screen Shot 2016-07-18 at 10.13.37 PMThe project focuses on social network of Instagram users to explain social influence in the form of user comments. InventingĀ a new metric to measure social influence based on temporal factor and recursive approach, we quantify social influence of Instagram users over a period of time. Studying the model network, we were able to explain the relationship between social influence and media characteristics and answered the 3 key research questions:

  1. How common social influence happen?
  2. How much social influence is exhibited in Instagram?
  3. Is there correlation between social influence and hashtags/likes?
