This chapter describes social network mining from the Web. Since the end of the 1990s, several attempts have been made to mine social network information from e-mail messages, message boards, Web linkage structure, and Web content. In this chapter, we specifically examine the social network extraction from the Web using a search engine. The Web is a huge source of information about relations among persons. Therefore, we can build a social network by merging the information distributed on the Web. The growth of information on the Web, in addition to the development of a search engine, opens new possibilities to process the vast amounts of relevant information and mine important structures and knowledge.
