Abstract: Online users create their profiles on numerous social platforms to get benefits of various types of social media content. During online profile creation, the user selects a username and feeds his/her personal details like name, location, email, etc. As different social networking services acquire common personal attributes of the same user and present them in a variety of formats. To understand the availability and similarity of personal attributes across various social networking services, we propose a method that uses the different distance measuring algorithms to determine the display-name similarity across social networks. From the experimental results, it is found that at least twenty percent GooglePlus-Facebook and Facebook-Twitter users select the same display name, while forty five percent Google and Twitter user select identical name across both the social networks.
