Activity: This file has 733335 lines. Each of them corresponds to a user and contains a variable number of columns. The first column reports the number of pairs between consecutive messages sent by the user. Then for each of these pairs is reported the time difference (resolution in hours). The last column contains the sum of all inter-event periods of time. The size of the file is 121Mb (384Mb unzipped).

Replies: This file contains 6511710 pairs message/reply. Each line contains three columns: the first two columns report the ids of the users, while the third contains the time difference (resolution in hours) between message and reply. The size of the file is 32Mb (105Mb unzipped).

In the paper Benchmark graphs for testing community detection algorithms, we introduced a new class of artificial networks that pose a far harder test to community detection algorithms. The new benchmark is an extension of the benchmark by Girvan and Newman. In the latter, the nodes have the same degree and the communities have equal size. Here, the distributions of nodes’ degree and community size are power laws, with tunable exponents. The code to build the new benchmark graphs can be downloaded here. Instructions on how to use the code are included in the package.
