The First Post

Social Networks seem to have taken off in the last few years. The aim of this blog is to document developments in the analysis of social networks from a Computer Science Perspective. With the large scale proliferation of computers, it is now possible to construct large scale social networks over a widely distributed geographical region but the type of analysis which was not possible due to lack of computational resources is now also possible. Also the role of different social media as a substrate for social networks cannot be ignored. This blog will focus on both online and offline social networks and chronicle some of the developments in the field.
