I will present a workshop at Predictive Analytics World in San Francisco on March 17, 2014.
Track 1: Social Media Analysis
Think Link! Network Insights with No Programming Skills
Networks are everywhere but collecting, analyzing, visualizing, and gaining insights into connected structures can require advanced technical skills. This session presents a free, easy-to-use tool for network analysis that builds on the familiar Excel spreadsheet called NodeXL. If you can make a pie chart, you can get insights into networks. The tool makes it easy to collect data from a range of social media (Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, etc.). Quickly create visualizations and reports on the shape of connected groups. Identify the key people, groups and topics in a community. Network analysis can reveal the hidden structures in streams of interactions.
