Social media websites are one of the most important channels for content sharing and communication between users on social networks. The posted images on the websites, even the ones from the identical user, generally obtain very different numbers of views. This motivates researchers to predict the popularity of a candidate image on social media. To address this task, we investigate the effects of multimodal on user profile, post metadata, and photo aesthetics. The proposed method is evaluated via a large number of real image posts from Flickr. The experimental results verified the effectiveness of the proposed method. Recent Publications: 1.
