The Social relationships of the pedestrians plays a vital role in crowd simulation, not only in the emergency circumstance but also in normal situation, which has been neglected in many researchers' study. The relationships among the crowds not only affect the modeling of the crowd simulation but also the pedestrian's behavior model. Additionally, social network provides a way of analyzing these pedestrians. In this paper, we try to build up a framework to integrate social network with crowd simulation for the modeling and analysis. This framework describes the way to build social network in crowd simulation and its impact to pedestrians' behavior model. We also display how social network visualization and analysis strengthen our understanding of the process of crowd simulation.
