Homework Number 2
Homework #2: Social media/network analysis using NodeXL (Due on 11/8/2012)
Use NodeXL (http://www.codeplex.com/nodexl) to analyze and display your network. Get a network to work with (100-1000 nodes is reasonable, but larger or smaller ones like the class members are acceptable). You can get a network from any one of these sources:
1) Import part of your Outlook email using NodeXL
2) Import a twitter network using NodeXL
3) Get another network
4) Create a network, e.g. the partnerships in this course, your family/friends, or a citation network
Explore with NodeXL, then describe the data, create 3 screengrabs with 3 headlines of what you found. For each headline, add a paragraph of text explaining what you did and a paragraph of what you found that was an interesting insight. Close with a paragraph critique of your NodeXL experience, describing positive aspects, problems you encountered, and suggestions for improvements.
Link to your PDF report below in the wiki. Always include you names, emails, and the date. This is due by 10pm on Thursday November 8, 2012.
