Abstract

In this paper, we present SimBetAge, an extension to Sim-Bet taking into account the gradual aging of connections in social networks which thereby increases the performance by an order of magnitude, especially in evolving network structures. For this purpose, we redefine similarity and betweenness to make use of weighted social network graphs.
