With the increasing use of social networks recently, studies in this area have also increased. These studies are generally related to social network analysis and modeling. The social networks are modeled using graphs; however, graphs are static structures and cannot model the dynamic properties of social networks. Petri nets are a graphical structure and are used in the modeling of dynamic structures. In this study, Petri nets was used to model the dynamic behavior of social networks. The model obtained was analyzed in case of behavioral and structural properties and the major properties of the model were determined.
