Abstract:
Abstract Online Social networks (OSNs) have become a major platform for communication as well as for distribution of content such as images, videos and external links to blog posts. Content distribution in self-hosted websites like YouTube, Vimeo, etc. generally conform to the Pareto principle where 20 percent of the contents account for 80 percent of the views. Yet the popularity dynamics of videos being shared in OSNs, from Video Sharing Sites (VSSes) is mostly unknown. The interaction of these contents with social networks dramatically increases the skewness of their popularity. To this end, we discuss the popularity dynamics of videos in VSSes focussing on views, ratings and comments. We then present an emulator which replicates the viewing and sharing behaviours of users in an OSN. Our model is based on the Galton-Watson branching process, incorporating the effect of the sharer’s influence in the propagation of videos through the network. Simulation results show high unevenness in the distribution and properly captures the popularity dynamics of videos in OSNs.
