In this presentation we aim to give an overview of the field of personal network analysis. We will define personal networks, describe for which aims they are used, and describe briefly how they are being measured and what is known so far. The presentation will be illustrated with examples from our own research projects. We will pay special attention to the latest developments in the field, such as EgoNet's new features, clustered graphs, the longitudinal analysis of personal networks with RSiena, and combining egonetworks into whole networks. Finally, we will suggest some future directions of enquiry.
