In the past decade, social networking services, e.g., Facebook and Twitter, managed to unprecedentedly connect hundreds of millions of people all over the world. Users register to online social networks in order to keep in touch with their friends and family, learn about their news, get recommendations from them, and engage in online social events. Thanks to the widespread use of mobile and wearable devices, popular social networks, e.g., Facebook, prompt users to add spatial attributes to social entities, e.g., check-ins, posts, and geo-tagged photos. Such spatial attributes are already being tied to social networking data to form what we call, Spatio-Social Data. Spatio-Social data brings both the physical space, social relationships, user interactions, and social media content into effect together, which led to the rise of many interesting applications. For instance, users in a location-based social networking service (e.g.,...
