How much do I Stand Out in Communities Q&A? An Analysis of User Interactions based on Graph Embedding
ResumoThe interactions in Communities Question Answer (CQA) have high dimensionality, generating dispersed and vast information about the users behavior. Understanding this behavior and what characteristics qualify users as the best contributors is still a challenge. In this paper, we rely on Persuasion Theory to identify users who stand out at CQA. We use graph incorporation for reducing data dimensionality to analyze six communities. As a result of the experiments, we found a strong correlation between the intensity of user activity and reputation, but it is not a linear relationship. Also, contrary to the literature, the best contributors are not the top 10-20%, but it varies from community to community. With the results of this work, users can design better strategies for collaboration; headhunters can identify best talents; marketing companies can identify influencers, and developers can adapt their social reputation algorithms.
