Social network analysis is a growing field used to measure connectivity and activity of people and communities. We develop a model that creates a network and measures the overall activity of that network. We then apply interventions to this model and measure the change in overall activity. Through an optimization process we are able to determine the best course of action that minimizes or maximizes the overall activity of the network.
