We present a new approach to the quantifying changes in an email social network illustrated by the data from the Enron dataset). The Triad Transition Matrix containing the probabilities of transitions between triads is defined, then we show how it can help to discover the dynamic patterns of network evolution. The compatibility of the TTM approach with the existing methods of characterizing the local topology (network motifs) is discussed as well.
