We present a social image recommender system that offers a hybrid filtering approach, combining content- and knowledge-based filtering with a novel social-based filtering, that selects images of social interest to the user, by e.g. being posted by close friends or family. User activity on social media is used when generating a user profile reflecting user interests and social context, and images are recommended according to a combination of social relevance and topic of interest. Our system handles both cross-source user profiling and image recommendation across social media, currently focusing on images from Facebook and Flickr.
