Jesús A. Alonso, Roberto Paredes, Paolo Rosso. Feature Representation for Social Circles Detection Using MAC. Neural Computing and Applications, 2017. Vol. 28 p. 2395.

Social circles detection is a special case of community detection in social network that is currently attracting a growing interest in the research community. In this paper, we propose an empirical evaluation of the multi- assignment clustering method using different feature representation models. We define different vectorial representations from both structural egonet information and user profile features. We study and compare the performance on two available labelled Facebook datasets and compare our results with several different baselines. In addition, we provide some insights of the evaluation metrics most commonly used in the literature.
