<h2>Why Study Personal Networks on Facebook?</h2>
<p>The network of friends, family, neighbours, schoolmates and others is a highly meaningful set of friendships. Showing their relationships to each other can help you understand how networks work and maybe help you learn a little about how your social world fits together. Different people have different clusters in their networks, as well as different brokers that link everyone together. If you have a significant other, chances are they will be tied to several groups. If you have your high school friends on Facebook, chances are they will be tightly linked together as many of them are friends of friends.</p>
