Abstract

Online Social Networks (OSNs), such as Facebook and LinkedIn, are now widely used. They count users in the hundreds of millions. This paper surveys popular OSNs in order to identify and present a pattern of recurring requirements, and a model of that pattern in the i-star requirements modelling language. The pattern can serve as a starting point for requirements engineering of new OSNs.
