Business usage of online social networks is a natural result of their intense development in last years. The information about members of a given community can be treated as a basis of correct identification of their needs and as a result adjusting personalized marketing messages.

This model is aimed at using the advanced data mining methods to enable business usage of social networks and related study problems concerning the importance of relational attributes in customer behavior analysis.
