The purpose of the research paper is to analyze the characteristics of users in social networking Web sites as well as the related contents of the Web sites. This research expect to use the techniques of social network analysis and Web mining to illustrate the networks of the blog users and by this to discover the interest groups. The analysis results will then be used to construct a recommendation mechanism and system. Furthermore, we expect that the concept of target-marketing can be achieved according to the proposed system.
