Social issues in Online Social Networks (SSNN) have attracted the general interest, in part due to the broad usage of SSNN among people, organizations and companies as well as to the political climate of the world. The analysis and visualization of how SSNN are used by different people, communities and groups can provide useful insights on social practices, behaviors and needs that can be used for varied purposes. There are also many social concerns about the use of SSNN that can be faced using network analysis and visualization techniques, including information reliability, transparency, privacy issues, fraud detection, fake news propagation, or digital divides. The information in SSNN is heterogeneous, unstructured and spontaneously generated, but if it is made available in an interpretable and accurate way to decision makers the right actions can be undertaken. Well-designed analysis and visualization tools will allow also to understand better the real impact of SSNN and how they can be used to improve communication with users and communities, with social, cultural or economic purposes, or even to strengthen the social capital and make communities more resilient.
Contributions to this symposium are expected to deal with case studies, algorithms, analytic and visualization tools, methods and techniques that address topics such as:
