News and Updates from the Social Media Research Foundation - 2017 Issue 6

Featured NodeXL Network

Facebook group

"Researchers of the Socio-Technical"

This month's featured NodeXL network highlights new Facebook Fan Page and Group reporting functionality in NodeXL Pro (v.387+).  The new "Network Top Items" feature in the Graph Metrics section of NodeXL creates a worksheet that summarizes the top contents in your network's content, like the top hashtags, URLs, Words and Word Pairs. 

Facebook network data sets should now be much easier to use with profile images, clickable links to profiles, URLs, hashtags, and words.

Check out the newly updated Facebook reports in the NodeXL Graph Gallery!

This network map is the user-to-user network within the open Facebook group "Researchers of the Socio-Technical". 498 people interacted in this group around the past 200 posts created by group members. Please take a look at the full report in the NodeXL Graph Gallery and feel free to download the options file at the bottom of the page to apply to your own Facebook Group and Fan page data sets.
