Abstract

User behavior changes over time under the influence of their activities. We contend that these activities are non-random behavior and have a desire to explore the underlying information behind these changes. In this paper, we analyze user behavior by using the check-in data in Location Based Social Networks (LBSNs), and examine whether they have the features of trend, periodicity and surprise or not. We explore some dynamics behaviors of people through their check-in times, and divide time into annually, monthly and even weekly analysis to find out the pattern of their behavior. Eventually, we found the check-in data do exhibit these three features by analyzing them deeply. The analytical work lays the foundation for the further recommendation research.
