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.
