Online Game Technology Summit: Observing Changes: Time-Dependent Social Network Visualization and Community Behavior Pattern Analysis


The visualization of social network data has always faced the problem of being too complicated and lack of readability. This problem becomes even more acute when it comes to observing and analyzing how social networks evolve. The group explores visualization schemes and corresponding analysis methods for temporal social networks and analyzes the patterns of social behaviors of different players and groups in games. By distinguishing the different information densities of temporal social networks at the levels of groups and individuals, accordingly, they create highly readable visualization and analysis methods and analyze the actual data of a typical newly opened online game.
