The massive adoption of the Internet facilitates growth of online social networks, in which information can be exchanged in a more efficient way. Such as products, user accounts, web pages, there may be a variety of objects suitable to structurize this kind of networks. As a result, this gives the networks complexity and dynamics. The work in this paper is aiming to studying the topological property of online social network structure from the aspect of dynamics, and make clear the evolution processes of the networks. This is done by a Mean-Field analysis of network growth based on BA Scale-Free network model. Data resources come from the Chinese online e-commerce platform you.163.com and graphs are modeled through commentator and mutual comments by calculating degree distribution of the networks. We build a growing random model for forecasting dynamics of degree evolution. Finally, we use data set on Sina Weibo to test the model and the results are satisfying.
