A new Social Interaction Monitoring System was developed based on the monitoring system that was developed in the previous project in which it focused on new contents created by the generators i.e. online news, personal blog, and government agencies and departments. The SIMS focuses on monitoring social interactions by the followers, as well as new contents. It consists of smart crawler, section filter, dynamic scheduler, event detector , social interaction analyzer and MCRDR classifier.
