Abstract

The increased concern of national security agencies due to the occurrences of emerging global threats through open social networks (OSN) has been significant. The risks have occurred in large measure due to explosive growth of social media, which facilitates immediate worldwide engagement. We have studied a set of four schemes based on random walk exploration to crawl across the non-private social data that is readily available on Facebook. Our work is based on tracing emerging global threats on Facebook (OSN).We detect the mood of the Facebook users across a group by random walks with the aim of sampling, collecting and monitoring open information through millions of Facebook messages. This will help government agencies to deal with some anti national movement in the nation.
