Analyzing social networks
This paper presents a meta-analyses of several approaches to network analysis using data collection, modeling, and visualization techniques used in data management and network analysis to derive conclusions about the structure of networks.
A General Theory of Network Governance: Exchange Conditions and Social Mechanisms

Network Analysis in the Social Sciences
The kinds of things that social scientists have tried to explain using social network analysis are reviewed and a nutshell description of the basic assumptions, goals, and explanatory mechanisms prevalent in the field is provided.
A Relational View of Information Seeking and Learning in Social Networks
A formal model of information seeking is proposed in which the probability of seeking information from another person is a function of knowing what that person knows; valuing what thatperson knows; being able to gain timely access to that person's thinking; and perceiving thatseeking information from that person would not be too costly.
On Network Theory
This paper analyzes two well-known network theories, Granovetter's strength of weak ties theory and Burt's structural holes theory, to identify characteristic elements of network theorizing and argues that both theories share an underlying theoretical model, which is labelled the network flow model, from which they derive additional implications.

It is found that off-the-shelf centrality measures are not optimal for solving either generic problem, and therefore new measures are presented.
What's Different about Social Media Networks? A Framework and Research Agenda
Several key differences between traditional offline social networks and online social media networks are outlined by juxtaposing an established typology of social network research with a well-regarded definition of social media platforms that articulates four key features.
