There are many ways with which we can analyze Dynamic Social Networks. This project summarizes contemporary temporal considerations in social networks. Time accounts for changes in the social networks based on relationships between time vs. data, time vs. relationships, time vs. hierarchies, time vs. behaviors, time vs. density, and time vs. distance. We have observed how time relations, data, behavior will affect network size and density using real time Face book data.
