The technologies of communication, such as forums and instant messaging, available in the social media platforms open to the possibility to convey and express emotions and feelings, besides to facilitate interaction. Emotions and social relationships are often connected, indeed, emotions and feelings can make the users favorable or reluctant to socialize, as well, experiences of socialization can influence the behaviors. Being personal, emotions and feelings can be crucial in the dynamics of social communities, perhaps more than other elements, such as events and multimedia items, because the individuals tend to interact with the users with who have particular affinity or with who share sensations. In this paper we introduce the problem of tracking users who share emotional behavior with other users. The proposed method relies on a cyberspace based on emotional words extracted from social media posts. It builds emotional trajectories as sequences of points of the cyberspace characterized by highly similar emotions. We show the viability of the method on Twitter data and provide a quantitative evaluation and qualitative considerations.
