Using a questionnaire survey and a smartphone-based social experiment, we conducted a study of private non-profit organizations aiming to supply public goods during three periods. Using the data obtained, we identified a dynamic change in the communication by temporal network analysis and elucidated the relevant factors by panel analysis. From the result of this paper, it was shown that having effect by the period on network structure, and sex and Face to Face Communication where there were scale-free characteristics were unrelated to the information dispatch by the ICT.
