*The Fourth International Workshop on Online Social Networks Technologies


*in conjunction with*

*The Fifth International Conference on Social Networks Analysis, Management
and Security(SNAMS-2018)* <>

* Valencia, Spain. October 15-18, 2018*

The explosion of the Internet helps the social networking concept to become
real, and to be a tool to connect people worldwide in ways that were
previously impossible. The Internet’s first generation (Web 1.0) consisted
of static pages instead of dynamic HTML, and the presented content to the
user is served from a server's file system instead of a Relational Database
Management System (RDBMS). The second generation (Web 2.0) encouraged users
to share information and interact and collaborate with each other by
posting their user-generated contents in virtual communities. The
development of Web 2.0 allowed many new social networking sites to flourish
such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Google Plus+, Tumblr,
Instagram, VK, Flickr, Vine, and many others. Such Online Social Networks
(OSN) provide a wealth of raw data that is invaluable to governments,
companies, universities, etc. The large scale of such networks presents a
challenge to providers just to keep them running smoothly. It also presents
a challenge to researchers wanting to analyze the data collected from such
networks. These challenges contributed to the rise of important of
important fields such as big data. The objective of this workshop is to
provide general guidelines on the current and future trends in online
social network technologies. Authors are encouraged to submit their
original work, which is not submitted elsewhere, to this workshop.
