Using graphs to understand social media networks

Francesca is a Mathematics Engagement Officer for the University of Edinburgh. In this Discover STEM video, Francesca explores how graphs can be used to show the networks that people have on social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. By understanding how people connect with each other on social media, we can identify which people might have the greatest ‘influence’ through having a larger social network.

Francesca has contributed to this Discover STEM video as a volunteer with the STEM Ambassador programme.
