Analysis of Social Networks Using the Techniques of Web Mining
Web 2.0 technologies have brought new ways of connecting people in social networks for collaboration in various on-line communities. Social network analysis deals with the interactions between individuals by considering them as nodes of a network (graph) whereas their relations are mapped as network edges. Study of such structures lies on the intersection of different areas of research: sociology, graph theory and data mining. This paper studies issues around analysis of social networks using web mining techniques.
