Because of the rich and varied resources in internet and social entertainment communities, more
and more people or groups are spending their time on discovering the social relationship between
others, or finding the core figures for business, political or security reason. In this paper, we build up
an SNM solution by analyzing users’ static attribute and interaction of BBS to mine what kinds of
attitudes they show to others and what kind of relationship between them using data mining
technology, to establish users’ social network, and to find out the key figures in networks.
