Abstract:
Systems and methods for enabling the formation and analysis of social structures, such as groups, in real-time among a number of participants.

Embodiments of the invention may be applied to better understand the opinions and dynamically changing membership and characteristics of social structures in a variety of settings, including but not limited to educational, business, political, marketing and related environments.
