I. INTRODUCTION

Currently, global Internet usage and the rise of its users have led to a new generation of Web sites called Web 2.0, which is more attractive, easier and more practical. Today, attention to web 2.0 issues has grown considerably, especially social networks. Social networks cause people with common interests, activities, insights, backgrounds, and/or friendships get together (1). The most important benefits of implementing Web tools (blog, Facebook, wiki, podcast and social networks) are the formation of collaborative groups and interactive environments. With the popularity of social networking sites, as an interactive web tool, more people can become part of an online community. Therefore, it affects many human relationships. Social interactions in these networks are crammed full with positive and negative relations. Positive relations are formed by support, endorsement, and friendship and thus, create a network of well-connected users which is useful for the promotion of market products, brands, services and new research ideas on social media (2). Negative relations, on the other hand, are a result of opposition, distrust, antagonism, and avoidance. Negative relationships represent a persistent, recurring set of negative social intentions toward another person (3). There are numerous researches available on different on aspects of working done on social networks in Iran and world (4). Anyway, the main focus of our work is on social networks field, not only because of the importance of these fields but also because of special publication patterns.
