Readwriteweb discusses discusses what the "social graph" means and whether the classic social network is a better term.
I tend not to agree that social graph should be retired. I think it is more than just a mathematicians way of defining a social network. It describes the next race of capturing the structure of the global social network and leveraging the internet and graph theory to allow people to manage and utilize their network better. That was a long sentence.
