Online social networks

This is the category online social networks. It contains 48 networks. Online social networks represent ties between persons in online social networking platforms. Certain social networks allow negative edges, which denote enmity, distrust or dislike. Examples are Facebook friendships (Ol), the Twitter follower relationship (TF), and friends and foes on Slashdot (SZ). Note that some social networks can be argued to be rating networks, for instance the user–user rating network of a dating site (LI). These networks are all included in the Social category. Online social networks may be undirected (such as on Facebook), or directed (such as on Twitter). For historical reasons, the internal name of this category is Social, even though it includes only online social networks.
