Social Network Data Analytics covers an important niche in the social network analytics field. This edited volume contains survey chapters contributed by prominent researchers in this field. The book spans a wide range of topics in social network data mining, and the coverage is designed to be comprehensive. This book is unique in focussing on the data analytical aspects of social networks in the internet scenario, rather than the traditional sociology-driven emphasis prevalent in the existing books, which do not focus on the unique data-intensive characteristics of online social networks. Emphasis is placed on simplifying the content so that students and practitioners benefit from this book.
