Entropy-growth-based model of emotionally charged online dialogues

Julian Sienkiewicz , Skowron Marcin , Georgios Paltoglou , Janusz Hołyst


We analyze emotionally annotated massive data from Internet relay chat (IRC) as well as from BBC forum website and model the dialogues between chat participants by assuming that the driving force for the discussion is the entropy growth of emotional probability distribution. This process is claimed to be responsible for a power-law distribution of the discussion lengths observed in the dialogues. We perform numerical simulations based on the noticed phenomenon obtaining a good agreement with the real data. Finally, we propose a method to artificially prolong the duration of the discussion that relies on the entropy of emotional probability distribution. © 2013 World Scientific Publishing Company.
