Most modern steganographic techniques embed secret data into digital multimedia by slight modifying the cover data. This work proposes a novel steganographic scheme converting the secret data into the behaviors of individuals in social network, not the multimedia data. In the scheme, a sender makes “love” marks on the news published by his friends with given rates for representing the secret data, and a receiver who is a friend of the sender can extract the secret data from a part of the sender’s “love” marks although some “love” marks made by the sender may be invisible to the receiver.
