I'm doing something like this for my PhD work where I'm comparing the
social networks generated from mining vs. social networks that people
say they have from SNA surveys. I did correlations between the survey
and various centrality measures to determine if centrality measures
alone can determine the community members. For more information,
please refer to my publications at
I think it's interesting to compare behavioural measures with SNA
measures to get a better understanding of people and how they
Hope that helps.
