Recommender system is an effective tool to solve the problems of information overload. The traditional recommender systems, especially the collaborative filtering ones, only consider the two factors of users and items. While social networks contain abundant social information, such as tags, places and times. Researches show that the social information has a great impact on recommendation results. Tags not only describe the characteristics of items, but also reflect the interests and characteristics of users. Since the traditional recommender systems cannot parse multi-dimensional information, in this paper, a tensor decomposition model based on tag regularization is proposed which incorporates social information to benefit recommender systems. The original Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) model is optimized by mining the co-occurrence and mutual exclusion of tags, and their features are constrained by the relationship between tags. Experiments on real dataset show that the proposed algorithm achieves superior performance to existing algorithms.
