We are a group of social media researchers who want to create tools, generate and host open data, and support open scholarship related to social media.

Our Mission

Mapping, measuring and understanding the landscape of social media is our mission. We support tool projects that enable the collection, analysis and visualization of social media data.

Our Projects

Today, our primary projects are NodeXL and NodeXL Pro, the network overview discovery and exploration add-in for Excel (2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016) that extends the familiar spreadsheet so that it can collect, analyze and visualize complex social networks.

Our Network

The Social Media Research foundation is supported by a global network of network professionals from a wide variety of disciplines.
