In science:

We begin by discussing projects which mine declarations of interest in news [110] and bookmark datasets to cast recommendations and make connections.
A Connection-Centric Survey of Recommender Systems Research
Other, less obvious, implicit, self-organizing, and social declarations of interest are bookmarks .
A Connection-Centric Survey of Recommender Systems Research
When a user tags a resource, be it a Web page on the social bookmarking cite Delicious, a scientific paper on CiteULike, or an image on the social photosharing site Flickr, the user is free to select any keyword, or tag, from an uncontrolled personal vocabulary to describe the resource.
Modeling Social Annotation: a Bayesian Approach
In addition, there are 4 to 7 tags used by each user on a certain URL from our observation in Delicious data we obtained; while tag vocabulary on an resource gets stable after few bookmarks as reported in [Golder and Huberman 2006].
Modeling Social Annotation: a Bayesian Approach
Finally, the proposed models are validated on a real-world data set obtained from the social bookmarking site Delicious (Section 4.2 and Section 5.2).
Modeling Social Annotation: a Bayesian Approach
Nt represents the number of tag occurrences for one bookmark (by a particular user, u, on a particular resource, r); D represents the number of all bookmarks in the social annotation system.
Modeling Social Annotation: a Bayesian Approach
To derive Gibbs sampling formula for sampling x and z, we first assume that all bookmarks are broken into NK tuples.
Modeling Social Annotation: a Bayesian Approach
The real-world data set, obtained from the social bookmarking site Delicious, demonstrates the utility of the proposed model.
Modeling Social Annotation: a Bayesian Approach
Then, a resource can be viewed as a document, while tags across different users who bookmarked it are treated as words, and LDA is then used to learn parameters.
Modeling Social Annotation: a Bayesian Approach
In particular, a tag for a certain bookmark is chosen not only from the resource’s topics but also from user’s interests.
Modeling Social Annotation: a Bayesian Approach
When the user-resource match is greater than threshold, a set of tags (a post or bookmark) is generated according to the following procedure.
Modeling Social Annotation: a Bayesian Approach
Suppose that, for example, we have two similar resources: the first one is bookmarked by one group, the second bookmarked by another.
Modeling Social Annotation: a Bayesian Approach
Real-World Data In this section we validate the proposed model on real-world data obtained from the social bookmarking site Delicious.
Modeling Social Annotation: a Bayesian Approach
This evaluation is infeasible in the social annotation domain, where each bookmark contains relatively few tags, compared to document’s words.
Modeling Social Annotation: a Bayesian Approach
The remaining steps involvin g generation of tags for each bookmark are the same as in the previous process.
