Abstract:In recent years social networking sites have become very popular. Many people are member of one or more of these prole sites and tend to put a lot of personal information online. This often publicly available data can be useful for many purposes. Retrieving all available data from one person and merging it into one profile even more. Detection of which proles belong to the same person becomes very important. This task is called Entity Resolution (ER). In this research we develop a model to solve the ER problem for profiles from social networking sites. First, we present a simple model. Then, we try to improve this model by making use of the social networks a member can have on these sites. We believe that involving the networks can improve the results significantly.
