Although social networks have always been important for social scientists, the relevant literature has mainly focused on the structural specifications of networks. By constructing social network maps to define who is talking to whom, it has paid scant attention to the content of the conversations that connected individuals are having. In order to achieve a better understanding of the processes that underpin the emergence and evolution of social networks, this study attempts to combine social network analysis, respondent driven sampling and narratives in a unified research design, which seamlessly incorporates both qualitative and quantitative research methods. This approach for the elucidation of the dynamics and change of socially embedded networks is rooted in the complexity science paradigm of emergence and the network phenomenology of complex adaptive systems.
