  • This paper aims to analyze the meaning and conceptual tension contained in the definition of social services prescribed by recently amended Framework Act on Social Security(FASS) by examining various terminologies of social services in Korea. In Korea the term of social services has had at least four meanings since it has begun to be used during Participatory Government. Of these, the meaning of social services in FASS is closest to 'social serives as social-jobs'. While, as has this meaning, social services in FASS is defined as very comprehensive one, it also has its conceptual tension. On the one hand, FASS comes to have the orientation to include immensely wide fields such as welfare, health, employment, housing, culture and environment within social service. However on the other hand FASS still has the orientation to limit social services to traditional social welfare services. Unless re-amending the recently amended FASS, the conceptual tension resulted from these two conflicting orientations will be likely to continue. And this might raise the need both to reform the organization of Ministry of Health and Welfare and exiting delivery systems of social services and to develop theoretical and practical principles providing basis for tailored social services, which in turn poses important challenges to social welfare discipline. To meet these challenges it is necessary to cooperate between micro and macro approaches.

  • The social services for the elderly have been expending in order to respond to the rapid speed of aging. However, low utilization, exclusion and duplication have been pointed out as significant problems in service utilization of the elderly. This study tried to find out the utilization patterns of social services for the elderly: what kinds of and how many social services the elderly receive from what kinds of and how many organizations, and factors influencing utilization of the social services. It surveyed the entire population of the public assistance recipient elderlies at Kyonggi province in 1999. The results show that duplication is not so significant problem as the low utilization of social services. However, the fact that more than forty five percent of the elderly receives social services from more than two organizations requires the efforts for service linkage and coordination in social service delivery system. The factors, which have relatively big influence on the number of organizations which the elderly use for each social service, were sex and age among the predisposing factors, "living alone" and place for residency among the enabling factors and the number of illness, Activities of Daily Living, Instrumental Activities of Daily Living and inconvenience of housing among the needs factors. These results call for expansion of social services for the elderly especially in the way of achieving distribution balance between the rural and urban area and activation of case management practice and local association of social service delivery agencies for service linkage and coordination.

Collaborative Filtering is one of the most widely adopted recommendation approaches, but recommendation technique that use explicit or implicit social network information from social networks has become proposed in recent research works. In this paper, we reviewed and compared research works about recommendation using social network analysis and collaborative filtering in social network sites.

It is expected that graph-based analysis on the semantic social network and systematic comparative analysis on the performances of social filtering and collaborative filtering are required.

  • Recent development of information technologies produces a lot of community services. Social Network Service is one of the community services on the world wide webs. In the Social Network Service, a user can register other users as friends and enjoy communication through a virtual message. Previous researches show a few social service methods using manually generated tagging. However, the manual social tagging is not widely used in many social network services. Moreover, they do not consider ubiquitous computing environment. We propose a recommendation method for social service using contexts in ubiquitous environment. Our method scores documents based on context tags and social network services. Our social scoring model is computed by both a tagging score of a document and a tagging score of a document that was tagged by a user's friends.
