Social networks conceptual analysis

Social networks conceptual analysis

> By Bénédicte Le Grand These figures represent Galois lattices built from two samples of online social networks (Myspace and DailyMotion). Galois lattices, from Formal Concept Analysis, cluster data (here the members of a social network sample) according to their common properties (here the members’ contacts). Each node of the lattice is called a concept; […]

Empreintes conceptuelles et spatiales pour la caractérisation des réseaux sociaux

Bénédicte Le Grand, Marie-Aude Aufaure et Michel Soto

In this paper, Formal Concept Analysis and Galois lattices are used for the analysis of complex datasets, online social networks in particular. Lattice-inspired statistics computed on the objects of the lattice provide their "conceptual distribution". An experimentation conducted on four social networks' samples shows how these statistics may be used to characterize these networks and filter them automatically.
