This is a milestone for NodeXL! Prof. Robert Ackland from the Australian Demographic & Social Research Institute (ADSRI) at the Australian National University has created a data provider for NodeXL based on the VOSON (Virtual Observatory for the Study of Online Networks) Project.
With the VOSON Data Provider Plugin for NodeXL, you can now access VOSON hyperlink network construction services from within NodeXL, an Excel 2007/2010 template for analyzing social media network data. So there are two ways you can use VOSON for analyzing hyperlink networks: (1) via the VOSON System (which you login to using a web browser); (2) via VOSON+NodeXL. The VOSON System is a special tool for hyperlink network construction and analysis. NodeXL provides access to various types of social media network data sources, e.g. Facebook, Twitter and, now, WWW hyperlink networks via VOSON.
