Abstract

As web services increasingly becoming popular, particularly in the context of Internet of Things, incorporating social networks have helped their discovery and binding. However considering both web services and users in the same social network and examining their influence on each other have not been investigated yet in previous work. In this paper, we propose a new social network-based framework for analyzing the role and influence of users and web services in the discovery process. We promote the idea of combining users and web services in the same global social network. First, we describe our three-step engineering method to build such a network that considers users and web services characteristics. Second, we analyze the different types of interactions that could take place between users and web services inside their global network. The results of our simulation show that this approach provides an immediate and wider exposure for web services and makes the discovery easier and efficient.
