summary Recently, online social networks, OSNs, have gained significant popularity and are among the most popular ways to use the Internet. Additionally, researchers have be- come more interested in using the social interaction networks, SINs[1], in order to fur- ther enhance and personalize their services[2]. OSNs are also redefining roles within the publishing industry, allowing publishers and authors to reach and engage with readers directly[3]. However, SINs are not very easily available as of today through the cur- rent APIs provided by most OSNs. Such applications would therefore spend tremendous amount of time trying to gather the required SINs for their services. Therefore, our re- search problem is how we can design a system that makes social interactions in OSNs accessible. This also refers to the problem of how to crawl OSNs in a structured way, which is the focus of this short paper.
