*Special Issue on Social Networking Big Data Opportunities, Solutions, and


Social Networking Big Data is a collection of very huge data sets with a
great diversity of types from social networks. The emerging paradigm of
social networking and big data provides enormous novel approaches for
efficiently adopting advanced networking communications and big data
analytic schemas by using the existing mechanism. The rapid development of
Social Networking Big Data brings revolutionary changes to our daily lives
and global business, which has been addressed by recent research. However,
as attackers are taking advantages of social networks to achieve their
malicious goals, the security issue is also a critical concern when using
Social Networking Big Data in practice.

Due to the complexity and diversity of the Social Networking Big Data,
there are two important aspects of Social Networking Big Data. One is how
to conduct social network analysis based on Big Data, the other is how to
using Big Data analytic technique to ensure security of social networks
using various security mechanism. Current work on Social Networking Big
Data focuses on information processing, such as data mining and analysis.
However, security, trust and privacy of Social Networking Big Data are
remarkably significant for current researchers and practitioners to address
these issues, and seek out the efficient methods to different threats. This
special issue will concentrates on the challenging topic – “Social
Networking Big Data”, and aims to solicit both original research and
tutorial papers that discuss the security, trust and privacy of Social
Networking Big Data.

Any topic related to Social Networking Big Data aspects, including social
networks, social influence analysis, big data, security, trust and privacy,
will be considered.

All aspects of design, theory and realization are of interest. The scope
and interests for the special issue include but are not limited to the
following list:
