Understanding online-social-network (OSN) user behavior is an important challenge in the ﬁeld of social network analysis, as OSNs play a signiﬁcant role in people’s daily lives. So far, many studies considering only one OSN or, at most, comparing results obtained for a single OSN, have been provided. Nowadays, users typically join more OSNs and this is an important aspect that should be taken into account for user behavior analysis. In this paper, we give an important contribution in this direction, by analyzing the behavior of users belonging to both Facebook and Twitter. This way, the analysis is well-founded because it is conducted on a common set of users and, further, a number of speciﬁc analyses become possible (as common friendship). Our study is carried out on data extracted from the web, and allows us to ﬁnd important speciﬁcities of these users about their privacy setting, the choice of friends and the activity they do, which are generally consistent with the recent ﬁndings in this ﬁeld.
