Visualisations of temporal social network datasets have the potential to be complex and require a lot of cognitive input. In this paper, we present a novel visualisation approach that depicts both relational and statistical information of evolving social structures. The underlying framework is implemented by the usage of Hyperbolic Geometry to support focus context rendering. The proposed method guarantees representing prominent social actors through scaling their representations, preserves user's mental map, and provides the user to reduce visual clutter by means of filtering.
