David Easley and Jon Kleinberg, both of Cornell University, have placed the contents of their social networking textbook online. All 24 chapters of Networks, Crowds, and Markets: Reasoning About A Highly Connected World are available for download. This could serve as a wonderful learning resource or an excellent reference tool. The material covered is quite extensive, and it provides many real applications of social network analysis. Not all the examples are online social networks.
