  • Publication number: 20190243849
    Abstract: An aspect of topic generation includes parsing communications conducted by users through an application. The communications include a communication generated by a sender and response communications received from recipients in reply to the communication generated by the sender. An aspect also includes identifying keywords and indications of sentiment from the parsed communications, determining a focus of the communication generated by the sender based on the keywords identified from the parsing, and formulating a topic for a publication based on criteria including a frequency of occurrence of the keywords in the parsed communications, a threshold level of the indications of sentiment that appear in the parsed communications, and/or a number of the communications containing one or more of the keywords having corresponding timestamps that fall within a threshold period of time. An aspect further includes submitting the topic for publication to the sender.

  • Publication number: 20170359289
    Abstract: A request initiated by a first user in a social network to add at least a second user of the social network as a contact of the first user in the social network can be received. A security policy for the second user can be accessed and, based on the security policy, whether the first user is authorized to add the second user as the contact of the first user in the social network without the second user being prompted to approve the request can be determined. Responsive to determining that the first user is authorized to add the second user as the contact of the first user in the social network without prompting the second user to approve the request, the second user can be added as the contact of the first user in the social network without prompting the second user to approve the request.

  • Patent number: 9769100
    Abstract: A request to add at least a second user of a social network as a contact of a first user in the social network can be received. A social hierarchy indicating a hierarchical relationship between the first user and the second user can be accessed. Based on the hierarchical relationship between the first user and the second user, whether the second user must approve the request in order for the at least second user to be added as the contact of the first user in the social network can be determined. Responsive to determining that it is not required that the at least second user must approve the request in order for the at least second user to be added as the contact of the first user in the social network, the second user can be added as the contact of the first user in the social network without prompting the second user to approve the request.

  • Patent number: 9384475
    Abstract: An out of office auto-response system that generates a calendaring user interface through which multiple out of office periods can be managed. The calendaring user interface enables a user to define, simultaneously view, and/or modify, multiple out of office periods during which auto-response messages will be generated. The out of office periods of the disclosed system are manageable as a specific type of calendar entries, and/or as a settable attribute of various types of calendar entries (e.g. vacation type calendar entries, meeting type calendar entries, etc.). The system generates user interface objects that allow a user to define an out of office period as repeated. The repeated office action may be defined as repeated a user-specified number of times, and over a user-specified interval, e.g. daily, weekly, monthly, yearly, etc.
