I would like to know if there is any features in Sage to analise social networks like:

Social Network Analysis

Drawing on Mathematica's strong graph and network capabilities, Mathematica 9 introduces a complete and rich set of state-of-the art social network analysis functions. Access to social networks from a variety of sources, including directly from social media sites, and high level functions for community detection, cohesive groups, centrality, and similarity measures make performing network analysis tasks easier and more flexible than ever before.

I mean exactly anlysis of the real networks not graph theory.

Not at the moment. We have a couple of network measures like centrality betweenness, cluster coefficients and all this, but that's pretty much it.

Your quote does not say much about what Mathematica actually does. If you have specific features in mind it'll be easier to discuss.

Oh, and Sage is open-source. Which means that if a feature is not included, you can write it yourself :-P

If you want an open-source program for running social network analysis, try R.

If there are Sage features you want to access, you can run R within Sage, although passing data from one program to the other is not easy.
