I will be speaking at the next Predictive Analytics World in San Francisco– March 14-15, 2011 about measuring and mapping social media networks with NodeXL:
Networks are the common data structure that unify the otherwise diverse range of social media services. In this session learn how to extract social networks from various social media systems and analyze and visualize the structures found in collections of connections. Learn to use the free and open NodeXL add-in for Excel 2007/2010 to analyze email, twitter, facebook, youtube, www, flickr, and wiki networks.
Here is an example – a map of the connections among the people who recently tweeted the string “#pawcon”.
Connections among the Twitter users who recently mentioned PAWCON when queried on March 14, 2011 including tweets from the period 3/10/2011 15:13 to 3/15/2011 3:51, scaled by numbers of followers.
NodeXL is available from www.codeplex.com/nodexl
