Analysts use collaborative filtering to find items or events that are frequently paired with other items or events. For example, an online store that tells a shopper, "Other shoppers who bought this item also bought these items" uses a collaborative filtering algorithm. A networking site that tells a user, "Those who viewed this profile also viewed these profiles" also uses a collaborative filtering algorithm.
