I've been using the Newman Girvan algorithm [1] to identify communities within networks of individuals, however, I've been told by someone who I respect greatly that Newman Girvan isn't the best algorithm to use for identifying communities when dealing with human networks.  So, the question I have for the group is: what algorithm would you recommend for identifying communities when working with networks of people.

All the best,
Steve
