Seminar “Digital social networks”, organized by Francis Bloch.

The seminar brought together fifteen scholars from economics, sociology and computer science working on digital social networks. The participants discussed recent advances in the empirical analysis of Facebook and Twitter data and the influence of social media on economic and political outcomes. Other presentations were devoted to theoretical models of the platforms’ behavior.

Polarization of opinions in social networks was also studied by extending the De Groot model of opinion formation to allow for dissensus. Other presentations covered a diverse range of topics on conventional social networks. Due to the wonderful environment at Les Treilles, the seminar was an unmitigated success, with lively discussions and seeds of collaboration among researchers from three distinct academic communities.
