Abstract: Here we propose a probabilistic model for determining link formation, using Naïve Bayes Classifier on non-topological attribute values of nodes, in a social network. The proposed model gives a score which helps to determine the relationship strength in a non-formed link. In addition to Naïve Bayes Classifier, weighted Average of the Attribute value match helps to determine the friendship score of a non-formed link. With the increase in online social networks and its influence on people, more and more individuals are getting wider and enhanced social connect. Everyone tries to connect more to explore more. In this race of more, an individual needs better and definitive tools to help them grow their network. Wider is the network more is the possibility to explore. Here we present a novel approach for predicting a link (friendship) between two individuals (nodes) in a social network. The proposed approach uses non-topological attribute data values of both the nodes and predicts linkage possibility by applying Naïve Bayes Classifier on non-topological attribute data values of nodes in existing linkages. A linkage possibility is expressed using one quantitative measure FSCORE. We call it friendship score (FSCORE) between two unconnected individuals. FSCORE is used to predict linkage between two nodes. Higher FSCORE means a higher possibility of linkage between two nodes.
