Social networks in R

More of a reproducible example, called a reprex would be helpful in attracting more answers. I'm going to assume that you are using the network library, and not sna or igraph.

coworking.adjacency.matrix is defined as a matrix object, labelled with the same given names as columns and rows, with 1 indicating an edge and 0 indicating no edge.

The first thing you need to do is to create a network::network object, which has the following signature

network(x, vertex.attr=NULL, vertex.attrnames=NULL, directed=TRUE,
hyper=FALSE, loops=FALSE, multiple=FALSE, bipartite = FALSE, ...)

Where x is your coworking.adjacency.matrix.

n <- network(coworking.adjacency.matrix)

gives you a network object, which contains the vertex name attributes in n$val, and


will return the names of the vertices.
