INTRODUCTION Heinlein there are six different types of social Data mining is the practice of automatically media: collaborative projects (e.g., Wikipedia),searching large stores of data to discover patterns blogs and micro blogs (e.g., Twitter), contentand trends that go beyond simple analysis. Data communities (e.g., You Tube), social networkingmining uses sophisticated mathematical algorithms sites (e.g., Face book), virtual game words (e.g.,to segment the data and evaluate the probability of World of Watercraft), and virtual social words (e.g.,future events. Data mining is also known as Second Life). Technologies include: blogs, pictureKnowledge Discovery in Data (KDD).
