But what have the physicists contributed to theoretical advancements in study of human behavior?  Besides the claim of physicists fathering/mothering the advent of SNA which is flawed st best, what have they done to advance any theoretical explanations of human behavior, particularly at the individual level? Just asking?

Ha!

Yes, lot of bad info out there... even in Wikipedia, and in those big data sets!

At least they are not calling it "social networkING analysis" yet!

Hi - Good to know.

Remember, too, Facebook invented the social graph.

Social graph "...was popularized at the Facebook f8 conference on May 24, 2007, when it was used to explain that the Facebook Platform, which was introduced at the same time, would benefit from the social graph by taking advantage of the relationships between individuals." -Wikipedia

Gee-whiz! I didn't know that.

Of course you should all know --

"One of the earliest known forms of the social graph was created in 2002 by Harvard student Philippe Bouzaglou in a paper published on the Harvard Department of Economics website." -Wikipedia


G-o-l-l-y, Sur-prise, sur-prise, sur-prise! Itís fun learning something new every day.


Letís be sure to give credit where credit is due. These deserve the double WTF-WTF.
