We present a very efficient active learning algorithm for link classification in signed networks. Our algorithm is motivated by a stochastic model in which edge labels are obtained through perturbations of an initial sign assignment consistent with a two-clustering of the nodes. We provide a theoretical analysis within this model, showing that we can achieve an optimal (to within a constant factor) number of mistakes on any graph G = (V;E) such that |E| = \Omega(|V|^3/2) by querying O(|V|^3/2) edge labels. More generally, we show an algorithm that achieves optimality to within a factor of O(k) by querying at most order of |V| + (|V|/k)^3/2 edge labels. The running time of this algorithm is at most of order |E| + |V| log |V|.
