In recent years, online social networks have grown in scale and variability and offer individuals with similar interests the possibility of exchanging ideas and networking. On the one hand, social networks create new opportunities to develop friendships, share ideas, and conduct business. On the other hand, they are also an effective media tool for plotting crime and organizing extremists groups around the world. Online social networks, such as Facebook, Google+, and Twitter are hard to track due to their massive scale and increased awareness of privacy. Criminals and terrorists strive to hide their relationships, especially those that can associate them with a executed terror act.
