Progress through the main story until Week 1, Day 4. The Social Network is unlocked at the beginning of that day. To access the Social Network, go to the Thoughts menu by pressing X (Switch) or Triangle (PS4), as it has its own tab there.
The Social Network tab has a web of connections featuring characters you meet across your playthrough. The characters on the web are made up of players in the Game, Reapers, shopkeepers, etc. Unlock missing connections by meeting and interacting with these characters through the main missions or the Side Quests.
When and where you can meet these characters or do their Quest is listed under their Timeframe in their profile. If their circle and line are blinking with a blue highlight, that means they have an Active Quest and you can currently form the connection with them.
Each character has their own Reward, which you can purchase by spending Friendship Points. These rewards are either Threads, hidden Food, or new game features to help you on your journey.
To gain Friendship Points and unlock Rewards, you need to complete the Side Quests listed under each character. Additionally, you need to be connected via a blue line to the character in order to purchase the reward for them.
Completing all Side Quests and all Gold Dives throughout the main story will not be enough to complete the Social Network. You need to finish Gold for Rhyme's Dive in Another Day to earn the last 15 Friendship Points. Rhyme can be found in Dogenzaka, near the intersection.
Rhyme's Dive consists of 10 reduction chains with various Noises and Emotions, making this the hardest Dive battle in the game.

|Character||Yoshiya "Joshua" Kiryu|
|Description||Makes battles even tougher, but provides even more EXP and an even wider variety of pins.|
|Timeframe||Week 3 | Final Day|
Just like the HARD Difficulty, you get more EXP per Noise defeated and access to a wider selection of Pin rewards. If you want to complete your Pin Collection in Records, you'll need to play through the game on Ultimate difficulty.

|Characters||Kohei Toyohashi / Ayano Kamachi|
|Description||Reduces the amount your maximum HP dcreases when you lower your level.|
|Timeframe||・Day 4 - Dogenzaka (Kohei Toyohashi)

・Week 2 | Day 1 (Tsugumi) - first connect with Susukichi on Week 3 | Day 6
This reward makes it particularly easier to barrage enemies with Rapid-Tap attacks and chain beatdrops using a singular button. This also makes it easier to focus on other Pins that require Charging or Holding their buttons. The drawback is that you can only choose one Input to Multi-Wield, and it does not apply to two Uber Pins of the same Input.
|Description||Causes blue Boss Noise symbols to appear when revisiting previously completed days.|
