A huge amount of information has been shared in various social networking
platforms, due to the structural changes in information sharing processes. It is
possible to analyze these data by social network analysis. Social network analysis
is defined as a method that focuses on social relationship structures and the study
of mapping and measuring relationships among social actors in a social network.
Social network analysis allows us to define human relations and to examine ways
of connecting. Social network analysis has commonly been used in engineering
and computing, and has recently become an important method in social sciences.
This six-week course focuses on various social network analysis tools, and
provides sample cases of analysis. Participants can contact the instructor to ask
questions related to the course.
