Abstract

In this paper, we propose to combine relational and semantic approaches toward studying online communities. In particular, we demonstrate how to integrate social network analysis data and semantic maps, both extracted from one data set. Integration yields insights that lead to more than just a combination of insights. Specifically, we find that individuals occupying central network positions use distinct word configurations and are concerned with very different topics. Thus, we provide a relational network with meaning, and discuss how this finding might be employed in future research.
