The development of social networks provides numerous venues for customers to share their views, preferences, or experiences with others. Thus, the Referral programs have become the most valuable forms of marketing. Additionally, studies have emphasized the positive impact of referral programs on consumers’ intentions to purchase products or services, which increases the need for considering referral value as part of customer value. Hence, this study analyzed customers’ behavior in social media by extending the RFM model and proposing a new RFMRv model in which Rv is the referral value of customers. First, the customer graph of invitations was used to calculate customers’ referral value. Then, the K-Mean algorithm was used to cluster customers based on the CRISP-DM methodology. Finally, the CLV for each cluster was calculated. The results indicated that the referral-acquired customers are more valuable than other customers and proved that the RFMRv model provides better clustering and valuation.
