sonSQL is a MySQL variant that aims to be the default database system for social network data. It uses a conceptual schema called sonSchema to translate a social network design into logical tables. This paper introduces son- Schema, shows how it can be instantiated, and illustrates social network analysis for sonSchema datasets. Experiments show such SQL-based analysis brings insight into community evolution, cluster discovery and action propagation.
