This paper is a preliminary account of my research on the connections between social networks and space. In the first place I will try to show how the introduction of space and time concepts can give some new ideas to network research enabling us, at the same time, to look at spatio-temporal modifications in a more concrete and operative way. On this purpose three important meanings of space, having different explanatory powers, are discussed: space as a constraint, space as a frame organising social relations, and space as a form of experience. Secondly I will suggest the concept of intersubjectivity as a possible interesting outcome of networks and space and time approach partnership. In particular I will briefly discuss how the link between networks and experience (in their relation with space) can be an interesting field of application of this challenging and controversial concept. Keywords: space; time; social networks; intersubjectivity
