Multimedia content has become ubiquitous on the web, creating new challenges
for indexing, access, search and retrieval. At the same time, much of this
content is made available on content sharing websites such as YouTube or
Flickr, or shared on social networks like Facebook. In such environments,
the content is usually accompanied with metadata, tags, ratings, comments,
information about the uploader and their social network, etc. Analysis of
these "social media" shows a great potential in improving the performance of
traditional multimedia information analysis/retrieval approaches by bridging
the semantic gap between the "objective" multimedia content analysis and
"subjective" users' needs and impressions. The integration of these aspects,
however, is non-trivial and has created a vibrant, interdisciplinary field
of research. The main objective of this book is to provide in-depth
knowledge that explicitly exploits the synergy between multimedia content
analysis, personalization, and next generation networking and community
aspects of social networks. We believe that this integration could result in
robust, personalized multimedia services, providing users with an improved
multimedia centric quality of experience (QoE) awareness. In response to the
booming developments in social networks, this edited book intends to keep
readers abreast of the current research and development trends in this area
by bringing together high quality chapters.

*Objective of the book*

This edited book is anticipated to be an assortment of tutorials, surveys,
and original contributions that concentrate on the most contemporary
advances in social media retrieval. The principle aspiration of this edited
book is not only to cover the theoretical and practical fundamentals, but
also cover the state-of-the-art techniques and challenges of the subject
area. A number of promising developments and innovative guidelines will also
be explained in this edited book with the aim of motivating further work and
providing an informative overview for academic research and practice.
