The existing social search has a problem that search results are not suitable for a user since it does not take into account the recency of the user profile and the interests of similar users. Therefore, studies on a social search considering a temporal attribute and the interests of other users are required. In this paper, we propose a social search scheme that takes into account the recent interests of a user by time and the interests of the most similar users. The proposed scheme analyzes the activity information of a social media user in order to take into account the recent interests of the user. And then the proposed scheme improves the satisfaction and accuracy of search results by combining the interests of similar users with the analyzed information and performing ranking, It is shown through performance evaluation that the proposed scheme outperforms the existing scheme.
