For the social meaning of a k-core, I proposed an interpretation of k-core
in the context of social network of a blog. You can see my papers here:
*Alvin Chin* and Mark Chignell. "Identifying Communities in Blogs: Roles for
Social Network Analysis and Survey
International Journal of Web Based
Inderscience Publishers, Vol. 3, No. 3, 2007, pp. 343-365
*Alvin Chin* and Mark Chignell. ""Finding Evidence of Community From
Blogging Co-Citations: A Social Network Analytic Approach". In Proceedings
of the IADIS International Conference on Web Based Communities
San Sebastian, Spain, February 26-28, 2006
Hope that helps.
