The problem of influence maximization has recently received significant attention. However, most studies focused on user influence via cyber interactions while ignoring their physical interactions which are important to gauge influence propagation. Additionally, targeted campaigns or advertisements have not received sufficient attention. To do this, we first devise a novel holistic influence diffusion model and then formulate a new holistic influence maximization query problem and develop three algorithms. Finally, we conduct extensive experiments to evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of the proposed solutions.
