Socially Aware Media Applications

In the previous chapter, we discussed OSLDA and SocialTransfer—frameworks that allow us to listen to social streams, extract information and then assign social stream topics to cross-domain media content scalably. In this chapter, we will explore the possibility of developing multimedia applications that are socially aware (i.e., utilize real-time social stream information). While some social multimedia applications are quite new in what it can achieve, others just add the social signal to existing media applications—empowering them with time-dependent novel information in addition to context.
