#' @title Network embedding
#' 
#' @description 
#' Compute an embedding of a sociomatrix into a two-dimensional space. 
#' 
#' @param Y (square matrix) The sociomatrix. 
#' @param fm (logical scalar) If TRUE, the Fruchterman-Reingold layout will 
#' be used (requires the network package). 
#' @param seed (integer) The random seed (the FR layout is random).  
#' 
#' @details 
#' Coordinates are obtained using the Fruchterman-Reingold layout if the 
#' package \code{network} is installed, and otherwise uses the first two 
#' eigenvectors the sociomatrix. 
#' 
#' @return (matrix) A matrix of two-dimensional coordinates.
