Recently a lot of research efforts have been spent on building recommender systems by utilizing the abundant online social network data. In this study, we intend to enhance the recommendation accuracy via integrating social networking information with the traditional recommendation algorithms. To achieve this goal, we first propose a new user similarity metric that not only considers tagging activities of users, but also incorporates their social relationships such as friendship and membership, in measuring the closeness of two users. Then we define a new item prediction method which makes use of both user-to-user similarity and item-to-item similarity. Experimental outcomes on Last.fm data produce the positive results that show the accuracy of our proposed approach.
