Dear Colleagues,
I have a very generic question, more prone to be a discussion. As you know, the number of papers devoted to modular networks (networks with communities or partitioned networks) is increasing. The majority of research is about detection of communities. My curiosity is the following: There are papers dealing with the problem of ranking nodes across communities. For instance, a generic ranking can be obtained as an aggregate form of rankings locally obtained within each community (using some centrality measures). When you aggregate rankings obtained within different communities, you can use for instance "primus inter pares" style. For instance, you can compare nodes in different communities only if they have earned the same rank in their different communities. This is a simple idea and, for sure, not the unique idea. I have been searching for papers dealing with those types of conceptualisation or applications on modular networks but I haven't found very much on this issue. For instance, Something similar is done when they compare teams in different European football leagues (communities) since they have to form "qualification groups" for the final part of the Champions league (across communities). But they use scores obtained within the specific football league. Thanks very much for your attention.

Have you looked into "social network analysis"? Lot of basics contained there that you would need to know regarding your questions. BTW, most human based networks are not very modular (i.e. disjoint) they are overlapping/intersecting(common membership)... so a whole new level of complexity is introduced which requires fuzzy set theory.

Answer
Hi,
To select an excellent thesis topic, see what others have done. To choose a topic, read reputable journals and conference papers to discover what others have done. By reading current articles, one may consider the studies' limits, what could be improved, and what other researchers have not done (because there is no point in doing the same thing again). Reading the literature is time-consuming and complex but essential for choosing a suitable topic. Young students should consult their supervisor throughout this process. The supervisor should offer relevant articles to read to validate research subject suggestions. The related work section and conclusion might highlight prior studies and suggest research ideas when reading a publication.
Also, the conclusion future section can be interesting to see.

Dear Colleagues,
We are currently working on a paper where we discuss how far the planning and interventions in cities nowadays ( masterplans, regeneration plans) include decisions based on the analysis/findings obtained from social media data. There is quite a lot of research that has been done, reports, and so on that concur on the fact that these data are rather helpful for the diagnosis and prediction of numerous urban dynamics and for decision and policy making... but so far we find only very few examples (to our knowledge) where these approaches have been indeed implemented in a master plan and executed.

The theory of social capital in the social sciences is well developed, considering not only sociology, but also political science and economics. However, in the modern world, which is called the period of formation and development of digital society, the question arises as to whether digital capital can exist? As a form of social capital, as a structure that reproduces social inequalities, as a mechanism for the institutionalization of social (and maybe digital?) Relations. What do you think about it? And how can digital capital be conceptualized in sociology?
Relevant answer
Answer
The operationalization of digital capital is crucial in order to research digital inequalities. Digital capital, according to the definitions of leading authors in the field of digital sociology, agrees very well with Bourdieu's analytical focus on how capitals convert into each other, which may explain how new forms are being created inequalities or maintain existing ones. As for concrete case studies in the digital sphere, digital capital offers some handy theoretical tools that are more appropriate and specific than classical Bourdieu notions such as habitus or cultural capital. Changing the nature of the Internet and modern technologies requires both flexible theoretical concepts, and existing one's definitions and conceptualizations of digital capital can serve as a potential response to challenges of digital case studies. However, digital capital needs to be further expanded to include elements of digital culture precisely because it could adequately encompass online culture and digital products, such as online memes that are becoming increasingly popular and diverse. Recent works dealing with digital inequalities in Europe and the world show that digital inequalities in many countries can be perceived through the same social factors.

Dear Rahman,
In recent years, research has been conducted on the sentiment of Internet users on various topics undertaken on Internet forms, in discussions on various Internet portals, issues entered in comments, posts, entries, and social media banners with the use of analytics carried out on Big Data Analytics platforms. The content of entries, comments, posts, etc. entered on specific, selected social media portals in a specific time range is examined. Most often, the first stage of this type of research is to collect thousands of entries, posts, etc. entered at a specific time and placed, for example, on a Tweeter with the use of specific keywords. Then, thousands of records of entries collected in this way are properly cleaned of unnecessary characters and processed in accordance with a specific algorithm for the preparation of research materials. Then, on the basis of the research material prepared in this way, a statistical analysis is carried out to diagnose the dominant specific phrases and phrases regarding a specific issue, topic, question, etc. In this way, the analysis of Internet users' sentiment regarding a specific topic is carried out using analytics carried out on Big Data Analytics platforms. . I have described these issues in the articles that I have posted on my Research Gate profile. I invite you to research cooperation.
Happy New Year 2022,

Gabora, L., & Russon, A. (2011). The evolution of human intelligence. In R. Sternberg & S. Kaufman (Eds.),The Cambridge handbook of intelligence (pp. 328-350). doi:10.1017/CBO9780511977244.018
Literature about human intelligence often focuses on the evolution of the human brain. But the theory of intelligence and rate of thought articles mentioned above suggest that networking plays a more significant role. In that view, language is a means for harnessing the vast energy and neuronal resources of networked brains, permitting transmission, reception storing and reprocessing of ideas originating in one brain or one group of brains by another brain or group of brains.
What evidence supports the two alternatives? Do the alternatives both figure in the answer?
Relevant answer
Answer
I liked the idea that the left hemisphere Sylvian fissure is responsible for *co-ordinating* motor actions and also for expressive language (AKA "Broca's area"). Deaf-mutes who rely on sign language loose their communicative ability after deep trauma to this area. The thesis is that during evolution it was the motor area which expanded to give homo habilis the ability to make tools (eg the stone-age axe) and to throw over-arm (a complex action that chimpanzees cannot do). With that growth came not only the ability to control the extremely fine motor actions needed for speech (one bonus) but also the ability to parse syntactically (which is bonus two - and one which our unfortunate deaf-mutes loose after a Broca area trauma). The part of the brain which lights up when we make non-linguistic shouts and yelps seems to be located further back from the Sylvian fissure (as it is in monkeys) which kind of loosens the support for the thesis that human language developed out of our ability to employ non-linguistic shouts and yelps with increasing complexity while doing things that required social cohesion. Thus in answer to Michael my reading of the evidence would favour a Piagetian interpretation that cognitive ability ontologically at least precedes language: but it is a cognitive ability of an extremely specialised kind and most probably a chicken-and-egg situation: motor cognitive ability hosts language which in turn develops cognitive ability. I do believe that poor devil Vygotsky theorised this as well, although he wrote far too little in his short life to develop it.
One thing we may be extremely sure of: just throwing in networking at random to an over-worked bunch of neurones will not accomplish much more than current AI networks are capable of: basically modelling the training data, quirks and all.

For a few years now, I have dedicated a part of my research and publications to the problem of hate speech on social networks. I am currently outlining a new article on that. There is something that makes me worried. It seems obvious that there are easily labelable and traceable hate speeches (especially in cyberspace with the help of automatic word processing software). Many published works provide today relevant data that allows detecting hate speech and identifying potentially criminal users masked under pseudo anonymity.
My concern is whether there would be another way to better approach hate speech without departing from purely scientific objectives, without contributing to the materialization of a kind of Linguistic Court willing to rule on the acceptability of expressions, perhaps in order to cleaning, fixing and giving “splendour” to digital language, improving, incidentally, the public image of social platforms and regulating the coexistence in cyberspace in such a way that only “good people” could participate ?
The truth is that, in addition to those speeches that explicitly express hatred, there is an untraceable, ungrammaticalizable hatred that resists both Logic and Empiricism. The question I ask you is if there is someone else who, like me, fears the risks of such practices of identifying "bad speeches" that could be used to purify the language, limiting freedom of expression? (sorry for my English, which is a language I use very rarely)

But Homo online has prevailed, and Homo sapiens has become a species in extinction.

Species don't evolve that fast, they don't evolve from one generation to the next. However, it is only technological progress that is so dynamic and causes changes in people's behavior, e.g. in terms of the dominant communication standards. Communication is becoming more and more remote, realized via the Internet. In addition, the SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) coronavirus pandemic accelerated the processes of digitization and internetization of many spheres of human activity.

Hello,
We are studying the Ministry of Health utilization of Twitter for communicating information about COVID-19, and assessing the tweets by using the Crisis and Emergency Risk Communication (CERC) framework.
My question is how to decide when the initial phase ends and the Maintenance phase starts and when does the resolution phase start? I could not conclude that based on the definition of each phase.
For example
“The maintenance phase generally begins when most or all of the direct harm is contained, and the intensity of the crisis begins to subside. As one crisis communicator commented, “You know you have reached the maintenance phase when you get to go home and take a shower.” Communication objectives during this phase include the following”.
“when most or all of the direct harm is contained, and the intensity of the crisis begins to subside”
How does this apply to coivd19 pandemic? when does the maintenance phase start ? Should we base it for example on the end of curfew and going back to work with (Masks, keeping distance ..etc.)? should we consider the number of cases ?
Pages 12-13
Relevant answer
Answer
Personally I think maintenance phase occurs when the number of cases have dropped to a level that is manageable by the country's healthcare and continues to stay at that level, or decreases, for at least one year. Other factors such as GDP picking up, employment rate returning to pre-pandemic level or close to pre- pandemic level, and so on are certainly helpful in your field of interest.

Microbrewing continues to expand across the globe with many US communities utilizing breweries as new social venues to meet-greet and participate in social activities. What do you perceive as interesting research questions related to brewing science as well as the interaction and impact to local communities?
Relevant answer
Answer
Although the cost of raw material in a brewery does not represent the main source of expenditure, studies that seek to reduce the amount of raw material (water, malt, hops and yeast) are important. If we look at hops, for example, the reduction in the amount of hops used in breweries directly affects environmental issues. Obviously without losing the quality of the beer.

Let's talk about what is our self else than your memories (if all set of information that we've got is a different type of memories)?
Relevant answer
Answer
The self is a complex interaction between memory and attention. In this case memory is facts we know about ourselves (self-knowledge), schematic structures built from our socio-cultural context and autobiographical memory. The Self is how we appraise, use, and prioritize not only information in memory, but also various interests and desires. These actions on memory, interests, and desires require varying degrees of attentional resources. Carolyn Jennings makes this point much better than I in her essay (https://aeon.co/essays/what-is-the-self-if-not-that-which-pays-attention). In sum, there is a bidirectional relationship between our Self and how we appraise, use, and prioritize what’s stored away in memory structures as well as our management of our interests and desires.

I am also conducting the same methodology for my PhD thesis. I think you need to justify why you will analyse contents from IG and FB. In relation to the previous answer, after your analysis of your content, you might discover contradictions in your themes and therefore might affect how you draw conclusions especially if these are platform specific (e.g. content on IG is more about the visual cue versus FB, length of media shared on IG versus FB). This will not be an issue if all your themes are not platform specific.

What exactly are border nodes in a social network? Any specific definition. Can somebody help me in understanding role of border nodes in information diffusion across communities in a social network?
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Shano,
In social networks, border nodes are those on the periphery of communities (or the network). They have an important role in spreading information among communities as they (communities) are connected through these nodes. They are usually used to take control of information propagation whether the objective is to keep or to inhibit the diffusion. I propose to see works of Pr. Dirk Brockmann on diffusion, for example, " The Hidden Geometry of Complex, Network-Driven Contagion Phenomena" and many others, you can get a good idea on diffusion in complex networks in general.

Seems like an easy technological solution, but it is a much harder sociological solution!

Relevant answer
Answer
Normally one would calculate betweenness by choosing pairs of vertices and incrementing a counter for each vertex on a shortest path. A randomized version might use a drunken walker. A random walk could express a genome. Two genomes, if they share a vertex, can produce offspring by a crossover there. In the end, you've got to sum up all occurrences of all vertices over all genomes of the pool.

Dear All,
I am writing my master thesis topics in the field of digital transformation. I would like to do a qunatitiative topic. However, most of the research gaps that I have found so far would require a qualitative research design. My initial research question was the following: how digital transformation influences the relationship between structural holes in social networks and the innovative performance of the firm. But I realized that it would be quite difficult to finish within the given tight time frame (3-5 months) as getting date on social networks can be quite difficult.
Therefore I would like to change my research questions within digital transformation. Does anyone know a great database from which I could get some data and investage the effect pf DT on it? (the effect of DT on firm performance could be an example, but this topic has been researched many times already.)
All the answers are highly appreciated.

Hi,
Your initial research question ("how digital transformation influences the relationship between structural holes in social networks and the innovative performance of the firm") appears conceptual in nature.

After that you can consult the libraries at your university and other sources to evaluate the relevance of databases available.

I'm recently working on a topic that requires an effective technique for social system modeling. What are the well-known techniques for modeling the social system in an organization?
Relevant answer
Answer
Hi, there are a number of authors who have developed social models for looking at organisations, going back at least 70 years. And there is a process of development leading from the one to the other in order of increasing detail and complexity.
First comes Kurt Lewin’s “field theory” (1940 and earlier) where he states that to study a group you need to look further than the individual and to make a map of all the important factors in the surroundings of that group.
Then comes the Socio-technical systems approach pioneered by the Tavistock Institute, from the 1950s and later, which postulates that organisations are more than social systems. They found you have to study how people function in combination with the technical systems that they use. Read the earlier work byTrist, Rice, Miller and Bamforth because later on this approach became more related to designing and organising the work itself and later it became the Quality of Working life movement which is a different thing altogether.
A third step is a model for organisational diagnosis and development, by Philip Kotter from 1979. That model is fairly comprehensive and is still used, recently in literature describing implementing changes in the educational system in Nigeria and other countries.
This three-step model of theories is my own work, one of the pieces of work I did for my research. Theories do not drop from the heavens, they build on previous work which often is not given that recognition in publications because everyone wants to demonstrate their own brilliance.
If you find this useful, I can send you the litetature references. Just let me know.

We are proposing a projected titled ``Framework for the mitigation of the spread of rumors in Online social networks.'' the main objective of the project is the proposal of a frame work that is able to mitigate the propagation of rumors in online social networks.The project requires several discipline from different field in computer science, where different compounds of project are illustrated in the proposed figure and listed as follows:
Data collection: As in any problem that deals with data mining, machine learning, or artificial intelligent, the data is the primary resource the investigate any problem. Thus, this step is one the first and significant steps in framework. The main objective is to develop method and algorithm to extract data from online social networks. Then, it requires structuring these data in order the facilitate their storage and exploitation.
Rumor detection: This step has the objective to detect rumors that are spreading in OSNs. In order to accomplish this task four steps as distinguishable, which are: Rumor classification, Rumor tracking, Stance Classification, and Veracity classification.
Study and analysis of rumor propagation process main objective is to study the dynamic propagation process of rumors in online social networks. this component highlights the the influence or the impact of different factors on the propagation of the rumors. These factors could be related the human factors such as: human individuals and social behaviors, or factors inherent to the networks structure.
Rumor influence minimization compounds aims to stop the propagation of rumors in online social networks.

A determinant of organizational performance is the ability to leverage expert knowledge: much of that knowledge is tacit and therefore difficult to capture, codify, and make available through search engines and database technologies. And so, when looking we usually turn to people we know for quick, reliable information (and chance conversations can help too.) However, in the connected economy, personal networks are no longer sufficiently diverse to identify all the right persons, much as reliance on random connections is a thing of the past. Staff directories are no longer adequate to the task: therefore, learning organizations thrive on rich and fluid linkages and use expertise location capabilities to put people in contact with one another.

In an information society environment, the Internet is being transformed from a communication channel into an environment for staying and interacting with consumers. By gaining unlimited access to products and being able to share consumer experiences, users influence each other's consumer behavior to a greater extent than before. The user actively accesses online and aggregator sites to find out pricing, product availability from the vendor, and additional service. The consumer also reads reviews on selected online merchandise sites. After reviewing customer reviews that have already tried the product, the consumer may overestimate the importance of the attributes of the product and, as a consequence, update the new need. When making a direct purchase, the consumer receives information from the manufacturer's or supplier's website about the terms of purchase, delivery and other technical issues. Once a purchase decision is made and implemented, the consumer can share their experiences through social networking sites, producer sites, and reviews, thus generating new content that will influence the behavior of other potential consumers.
