Zhihong LI, Huiquan CHEN


Social Q&A community is the focus of knowledge sharing and knowledge acquisition in the Internet era. The study of user group and community structure of social Q&A community is helpful to discover its model of knowledge transfer and the characteristics of the user group. Based on the study of relevant literature and social Q&A community characteristics, we build social relationships network model and use the method of social network analysis to study user groups. Finally, we find the user characteristics and behavior pattern. Furthermore, we analyze the knowledge transfer model of social Q&A community.
