Social network analysis software

Social network analysis software
Social network analysis software (SNA software) is software which facilitates quantitative or qualitative analysis of social networks, by describing features of a network either through numerical or visual representation. Overview[edit] Some SNA software can perform predictive analysis.[5] This includes using network phenomena such as a tie to predict individual level outcomes (often called peer influence or contagion modeling), using individual-level phenomena to predict network outcomes such as the formation of a tie/edge (often called homophily models[6]) or particular type of triad, or using network phenomena to predict other network phenomena, such as using a triad formation at time 0 to predict tie formation at time 1. Network analysis software generally consists of either packages based on graphical user interfaces (GUIs), or packages built for scripting/programming languages. GUI packages are easier to learn, while scripting tools are more powerful and extensible. See also[edit]

Home - GitHub Pipes is a dataflow framework using process graphs. A process graph is composed of Pipe vertices connected by communication edges. A Pipe implements a simple computational step that can be composed with other Pipe objects to create a larger computation. Such data flow graphs allow for the splitting, merging, looping, and in general, the transformation of data from input to output.

Mining social networks: Untangling the social web TELECOMS operators naturally prize mobile-phone subscribers who spend a lot, but some thriftier customers, it turns out, are actually more valuable. Known as “influencers”, these subscribers frequently persuade their friends, family and colleagues to follow them when they switch to a rival operator. The trick, then, is to identify such trendsetting subscribers and keep them on board with special discounts and promotions. People at the top of the office or social pecking order often receive quick callbacks, do not worry about calling other people late at night and tend to get more calls at times when social events are most often organised, such as Friday afternoons. Influential customers also reveal their clout by making long calls, while the calls they receive are generally short. Companies can spot these influencers, and work out all sorts of other things about their customers, by crunching vast quantities of calling data with sophisticated “network analysis” software.

2011 Social Network Analysis Report – Geographic – Demographic and Traffic Data Revealed 2010 was a rocky year in the social network space and many sites closed their doors including Propeller.com and Team Sugar, to name a few. Quite a few others continued their decline into yesterday’s news as we see more social network users consolidating their social profiles. Undoubtedly, Facebook’s continued growth worldwide has led to this as it becomes the de facto source for social networking. We added coverage of the following international social networks this year: Douban.comHyves.nlImvu.comKaixin001.comMixi.jpNK.plOdnoklassniki.ruQQ.comRenren.comSonico.comTagged.comTaringa.netTumblr.comVkontakte.ruWer-kennt-wen.deWeibo.com

Why Use it? Community mapping provides equitable development practitioners with accurate and unique information, effective visual tools, and the ability to understand and share their own experience in the context of their changing environment. Community mapping is powerful because of its capacity to democratize information-both what is recorded and who has access to it. When presented well, maps have the power to convey complicated information and relationships in a straightforward, accessible manner, enabling non-experts to participate meaningfully in community planning and advocacy. Seeing the Connections By looking at the map we created, people hot a sense why certain areas weer targeted to build housing, playgrounds, community gardens.

Metaprogramming Metaprogramming usually works in one of three ways[citation needed]. The first way is to expose the internals of the run-time engine to the programming code through application programming interfaces (APIs). The second approach is dynamic execution of expressions that contain programming commands, often composed from strings, but can also be from other methods using arguments and/or context.[1] Thus, "programs can write programs." Although both approaches can be used in the same language, most languages tend to lean toward one or the other. The third way is to step outside the language entirely. How To Monitor Your Brand Online (Without Losing Your Shirt) Let’s face it, in some cases monitoring your brand online through systems such as Radian6 might not just be out of your budget, they can also be overkill if you’re a personal brand or a small business. But don’t think for a moment that I’m about to craft a simple list of the usual free tools, if you have been reading this blog for a while you know that I usually emphasize in the importance of thinking as a serious entrepreneur and invest in your business, whatever that is. So if we can’t spend $600/month and can’t rely on free shit if we pretend to be ass-kicking entrepreneurs, it’s pretty clear that we need to find a balance that we can afford and can give us the necessary data in order to manage our marketing strategies.
