Social networks are a class of information networks, where the unit of exchange (acquaintance, knowledge, attention) is in terms of information, rather than physical material. Information networks are characteristically different from material networks. While material networks are primarily about transfer of energy, information networks are driven by the need to model or represent underlying semantics. In this talk, we will first look contrast information and material networks. We will then look into different kinds of semantics that can be discerned from the way information elements have been connected.
