Online Social Networks: Anonymized Data from Third-Party Facebook Applications

  • Dataset #1: single tar file with README
    Description: This data set includes a 3-week long trace (ending April 1, 2008) of activity on three Facebook-based applications (Fighters' Club, Got Love?, and Hugged). A comprehensive analysis of this data set has been published in IMC'08, and this data set is made available to the internet measurement community for further exploration of activity originating from third party social networking applications.

  • Dataset #2: single tar file (1.5GB+) with README
    Description:This data set includes experimentation results from PlanetLab nodes as well as passive measurement performed at the third-party application servers for six popular Facebook applications, as used in the IMC'09 publication titled 'Network Level Footprints of Facebook Applications.' This data set is made available to the internet measurement community.

Bluetooth Connectivity Trace

  • Dataset: UC Davis Haggle - Unitrans Mobility Trace
  • Description: This data set includes several traces about the available Bluetooth connectivity during a typical day on the Unitrans bus system at University of California, Davis. The data has been uploaded to the CRAWDAD. The data was collected using Intel iMotes, which contain an ARM core as well as a Bluetooth radio stack. The motes run a simple Bluetooth inquiry program. Periodocally (e.g., every 2 minutes) the device does an inquiry for a duration (e.g., 5 seconds). All devices detected during this inquiry period are noted. These experiments give a list of contacts - with start and end times - that a particular mote has during its lifetime. For each experiment, the polling interval was 2 minutes, and the inquiry duration was 5 seconds.
