Abstract: Not all friends have the same importance to an individual, and even the importance of a friend can vary over time. In order to keep friends close, online relational maintenance strategies can be employed. The knowledge about the tie strength of an online relation can be useful to social, technical or commercial purposes. In this paper, we define a metric for tie strength in online friendships. We investigate variables related to friendship maintenance as well as their relative importance. Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) is a decision method used to find the relevance of the selected variables. We conduct experiments that show a high acceptance of the metric based on assessments of real users.
