[Objective] This paper proposes a new algorithm for influence maximization based on overlapping community, called IM-BOC algorithm, aiming to the low efficiency of greedy algorithm. [Methods] This method selects candidate seed set by combing propagation degree and k-core firstly, then it utilizes CELF algorithm to ensure the optimal seed set, which can improve both efficiency and accuracy. [Results] The experimental results show that running time of our algorithm can improve about 89% when facing Amazon dataset. [Limitations] Our IM-BOC algorithm allocates the number of candidate seeds only according to the number of community nodes, which has insufficient theoretical evidence. [Conclusions] IM-BOC algorithm is applicable to large scale networks under the premise of ensuring the influence spread.
