One quick tip: you need to make sure that you are actually creating a real network object before you calculate appropriate network statistics.

The first missing step in your code is you need to tell the network creation function that you are working with an edgelist.

This should work:

net1 <- as.network(net1.df, matrix.type="edgelist")

Where 'net1.df' is your dataframe based on the CSV file, and 'net1' will be your new, directed network object.

However, this will not read in the Friend valued ties, that will require more work.

I would encourage you to understand what the betweenness centrality scores are telling you with the non-valued ties first. I myself find it much harder to interpret betweenness of valued-ties.

Hope this helps,
