  • Patent number: 10630624
    Abstract: A method, system and/or computer program product predicts viewing activity of a new posting to an activity stream. A first computer transmits a new posting to an activity stream in a second computer, where the new posting is available to a potential viewer set. Based on identified viewer information about one or more members of the potential viewer set, a prediction is made of viewing activity of the new posting by the potential viewer set. This predicted viewing activity is based on identified viewer information about members of the potential viewer set, and describes a predicted likelihood of the potential viewer set viewing the new posting. The derived predicted viewing activity of the new posting by the potential viewer set is then presented at the first computer.

  • Publication number: 20200014647
    Abstract: A social network activity mode that is implemented using social network activity rules is identified. The social network activity rules allow only social network posts of relevance to a particular activity of a user to be presented to the user. The social network activity mode is applied to a group of social network posts. Based upon applying the social network activity mode to the group of social network posts, social network posts that comply with the social network activity rules of the social network activity mode are provided to the user and social network posts that do not comply with the social network activity rules of the social network activity mode are blocked.

  • Patent number: 9882979
    Abstract: A method transmits an image file to a target electronic device. One or more processors convert an original image file from a first format into a second format to create a converted image file. A locator address metatag is appended to the converted image file. The locator address metatag provides an address of a copy of the original image file in the first format. The converted image file with the locator address metatag is transmitted, from a source electronic device to a target electronic device, such that the locator address metatag enables the target electronic device to locate and retrieve the copy of the original image file.

  • Patent number: 9606711
    Abstract: An approach is described for evaluating portions of content in an online community. An associated system may include a processor and a memory storing an application program, which, when executed on the processor, performs an operation that may include displaying a content post in an online community interface and, upon detecting a selection of an option in the online community interface to evaluate the content post, requesting a selection of one or more portions of the content post and an evaluation of the selected one or more portions. Requesting such evaluation may include requesting selection of a favorability score on a predefined scale for each of the selected one or more portions. The operation further may include, upon receiving a selection of one or more portions and an evaluation of the selected one or more portions, updating display of the content post to reflect the evaluation.

Previously evaluated portions or portions predetermined via natural language processing or audiovisual processing may be displayed to facilitate evaluation of the content post. The method further may include, upon receiving a selection of one or more portions and an evaluation of the selected one or more portions, updating display of the content post to reflect the evaluation.
