II. Background of the Study A social network is a theoretical construct useful in the social sciences to study social relationships. The theoretical approach is, necessarily, relational. An axiom of the social network approach to understanding social interaction is that social phenomena should be primarily conceived and investigated through the properties of relations between and within units instead of the properties of these units themselves. Some of the ideas of social network theory are found in writings going back to the ancient Greeks.

In the late 1800s, both¬†Emile Durkheim¬†and¬†Ferdinand Tonnies¬†foreshadow the idea of social networks in their theories and research of¬†social groups. Tonnies argued that social groups can exist as personal and direct social ties that either link individuals who share values and belief (Gemeinschaft, German, commonly translated as “community”) or impersonal, formal, and instrumental social links (Gesellschaft, German, commonly translated as “society”).

Durkheim gave a non-individualistic explanation of social facts arguing that social phenomena arise when interacting individuals constitute a reality that can no longer be accounted for in terms of the properties of individual actors. Georg Simmel, writing at the turn of the twentieth century, pointed to the nature of networks and the effect of network size on interaction and examined the likelihood of interaction in loosely-knit networks rather than groups.
