All social networks are made of interconnected nodes and edges (graph) where news, messages, and updates (stories) propagate around on the network. Anahita® is perhaps one of the first open source implementations that follows the correct mathematical model of nodes-graphs-stories architecture.
In Anahita everything and everybody are represented by the the nodes (people, groups, events, photos, topics, etc.) and relationships by the edges (graphs). Stories are the smallest unit of information that propagate around on the network of interconnect nodes and edges (the social network).
