One of the hottest topics in social network analysis is community detection. Community detection or community discovery is the task of clustering individuals into homogeneous communities based on their networked structure. In this talk, we first present some difficulties in cleanly separating out different clusters of a social network due to their natural properties. We then provide a review of typical algorithms for community detection with discussions on their methodological and analytical results.
