Content curation and characterization in communities of a place

Abstract : The amount of information on the Internet today overwhelms most users. Discovering relevant information (e.g. news to read or videos to watch) is time-consuming and tedious and yet it is part of the daily job of at least 80% of the employees in North America. Several information filtering systems for the web can ease this task for users. Examples fall into families such as Social Networks, Social Rating Systems and Social Bookmarking Systems. All these systems require user engagement to work (e.g. submission or rating of content). They work well in an Internet-wide community but suffer in the case smaller communities. Indeed, in smaller communities, the users' input is more scarce. We focus on communities of a place that are communities that group people who live, work or study in the same area. Examples of communities of a place are: (i) the students of a campus, (ii) the people living in a neighborhood or (iii) researchers working in the same site. Anecdotally we know that only 0.3% of workers contribute daily to their corporate social network. This information shows that there is a lack of user engagement in communities of a place.
