Sociologists, psychologists communication researchers use term social networks to describe social relationships and flows between people, groups, organizations and other entities whereas mathematicians and computer scientists have used graph theory to explain graphs.
Social network is out, social graph is in. But what is the difference?
My answer is: nothing. The proponents of “social graph” my argue otherwise. For me the main problem with both social network and social graph is they are equally nondescript. Everyone involved vaguely knows what others mean by those terms. I think we don’t need more vague terms for overall concepts, rather clear terms for specifics. Easier said than done, of course.
