Social Network Analysis refers to the methods used for analyzing social networks or interconnections among individuals. The individuals are taken as “nodes” and are connected to each other based on their interconnections, which may be of various types (friendship, co-authorship, kinship, sexual relations, financial exchange, common interest etc.) SNA uses various techniques from Graph Theory, Game Theory and several other to study, explain and predict the network.
