Generally true, I'd say, physicists often focus on non-social structures
like the WWW partly because of the ample availability of data, but there are
some interesting physics papers on social networks, e.g. the paper "Why
social networks are different from other types of networks", by Mark Newman
and Juyong Park, published in Phys. Rev. E and available at
http://www.arxiv.org/abs/cond-mat/0305612

Agreed. This school of network theorists seems to have little interest in
social structure which makes their work less relevant to social science
than it might be.
