(p.63) Chapter 4 Networks of information

M. E. J. Newman

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on information networks, consisting of items of data linked together in some way. Information networks are all, so far as we know, man-made, with perhaps the best known example being the World Wide Web. There are also some networks which could be considered information networks but which also have social aspects to them. Examples include networks of email communications, networks on social-networking websites such as Facebook or LinkedIn, and networks of weblogs and online journals.

Keywords:   information networks, World Wide Web, citation networks, email, Facebook
