Request: Looking for Multi-Dimensional Social Network Datasets/Corpora/Collections

Is anyone aware of multi-dimensional social network datasets/corpora/collections where friendships are based on several attributes? For example, A is friend with B because they are co-author. Or, A is friend with C because they play badminton. Generally, Facebook-based datasets describe that A is related to B because A and B are friends on Facebook. We are currently looking for more complex relations.

We are aware of the following resources and studies:

1) Facebook Project i

2) The Facebook datasets, described in K. Lewis, J. Kaufman, M. Gonzalez, A. Wimmer, and N.A. Christakis, “Tastes, Ties, and Time: A New (Cultural, Multiplex, and Longitudinal) Social Network Dataset Using,” Social Networks 30(4): 330-342 (October 2008) ARE STILL OFFLINE (

3) J.H. Fowler and N.A. Christakis, “Cooperative Behavior Cascades in Human Social Networks” PNAS: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences 107(12): 5334–5338 (March 2010)

4) Fowler, J. H. and Christakis, N. A. (2008). Dynamic spread of happiness in a large social network:
longitudinal analysis over 20 years in the Framingham Heart Study. British Medical Journal.


6) SOCIAL SHAPING OF TWITTER, A comparative analysis of Twitter use by Dutch and American book publishers BY Annefloor F. Samsom (dissertation):

Can anyone suggest additional pointers to rich social network datasets and/or studies?

Thanks in advance
