Abstract
(English)
Matching problems are ubiquitous. They occur in economic markets, labor markets, internet advertising, and elsewhere. In this paper we focus on an application of matching for social media. Our goal is to distribute content from information suppliers to information consumers. We seek to maximize the overall relevance of the matched content from suppliers to consumers while regulating the overall activity, e.g., ensuring that no consumer is overwhelmed with data and that all suppliers have chances to deliver their content. We propose two matching algorithms, GreedyMR and StackMR, geared for the MapReduce paradigm. Both algorithms have provable approximation guarantees, and in practice they produce high-quality solutions. While both algorithms scale extremely well, we can show that StackMR requires only a poly-logarithmic number of MapReduce steps, making it an attractive option for applications with very large datasets. We experimentally show the trade-offs between quality and efficiency of our solutions on two large datasets coming from real-world social-media web sites.
