Abstract: Nowadays; lots of people with different goals are registered in social networks and do wide range of activities. Social networks provide a structure that allows users to interact and share resources (e. g. Documents; Pictures and Videos) on the basis of a trustworthy relationship (e. g. Friendship). One of the most important feature of social networks is knowledge sharing. Social networks and online communities have become important places for people to seek and share expertise. One major problem on social networks and online communities is a wide range of shared knowledge and experience is available but there is no mechanism to determine their validity. This Problem can be viewed as finding the influential experts who posts topic-specific high-quality content. By finding experts in social networks and determining their level of knowledge; the validity of their posts could be determined. Finding expertise in a research area also helps researchers to know who are the experts working on particular research area and seek help from them. Researchers can use this platform to work with Experts of concerned area for their Research Topic. Considering the problem of Expert Finding and available technology: Social Networking; a novel solution of Experts Social Network is proposed. This will be a Social Network System where Experts Can Share their knowledge and other members of network can use it. This System will help to A User to get topic-specific high-quality content; Trending Topics; Share data and work with peer members of Network. Our approach demonstrates that for finding an Expert and to get topic-specific high-quality content; Social Networking is one of the ways.
