Walking in Facebook: A Case Study of Unbiased Sampling of OSNs
In this paper, we obtained for the first time representative (unbiased) samples of Facebook users by crawling its social graph. Expand
ergm: A Package to Fit, Simulate and Diagnose Exponential-Family Models for Networks.
We describe some of the capabilities of the ergm package for modeling networks based on exponential-family random graph models and the statistical theory underlying it. Expand
4. A Relational Event Framework for Social Action
We introduce a highly flexible framework for modeling actions within social settings, which permits likelihood-based inference for behavioral mechanisms with complex dependence. Expand
