Social Media Story Telling

Hennig, Patrick; Berger, Philipp; Dullweber, Christian; Finke, Moritz; Maschler, Fabian; Risch, Julian; Meinel, Christoph in Proceedings of the 8th IEEE International Conference on Social Computing and Networking (SocialCom2015) Seite 279-284 . Chengdu, China , 2015 .

The number of documents on the web increases rapidly and often there is an enormous information overlap between different sources covering the same topic. Since it is impractical to read through all posts regarding a subject, there is a need for summaries combining the most relevant facts. In this context combining information from different sources in form of stories is an important method to provide perspective, while presenting and enriching the existing content in an interesting, natural and narrative way. Today, stories are often not available or they have been elaborately written and selected by journalists. Thus, we present an automated approach to create stories from multiple input documents. Furthermore the developed framework implements strategies to visualize stories and link content to related sources of information, such as images, tweets and encyclopedia records ready to be explored by the reader. Our approach combines deriving a story line from a graph of interlinked sources with a story-centric multi-document summarization.
