The Moving Media project has been exploring social network analysis of mhealth tagged tweets to better understand the informal policy networks that are developing on Twitter – but we’ve come up with some big questions about the analytical processes we’re using.
So we’d like to start a discussion about some of the challenges of doing SNA and network visualisations with this type of data, including things like:
- The types of tools that DH are using for SNA (Gephi vs Node XL)
- How to slice big data
- How to locate the data across maps
- How to automate the data scraping process
- How to share the data back with the users
We’d also like to know what you’re doing in this space and what discoveries you’ve made.
