We are proud that in 2016 we have passed the great threshold of 1500 chats. Thus, we have gained chats and important data, which are used for scientific work. Thanks to all for contributing.Mehr
Research Area: Social Network Analysis
We implemented WhatsAnalyzer to investigate how group-based communication changes the activity patterns of multiple users. When evaluating communication technologies, models from the past (e.g., Poisson arrival process of end-to-end voice calls) cannot be directly used for nowadays applications (e.g., WhatsApp messages are exchanged in groups of users) and need to be adapted to integrate interaction of users on a smaller time scale. Therefore, we analyze the group communication behavior in WhatsApp and investigate possible implications of this emerging communication paradigm on networking technology.Mehr
