Description

With the recent advancements in social networking websites such as Facebook and Twitter, it has become imperative to understand how social influences affect the adoption of innovations, ideas, and opinions. In this presentation, we examine how ideas and opinions spread through various network models under two propagation rules. Our main goal is to find the minimum number of initial adopters of an idea which results in complete propagation of the idea through the rest of a social network. We also discuss real-world situations in which we can apply the findings in propagation analysis.
