Social Network analysis allows us to identify players in a social network and how they are related to each other. For example: I want to identify people who are involved in a certain topic - either to interview or to understand what different groups are engaging in debate.

 

What you’ll Need:

Gephi (http://gephi.org)OpenRefine (http://openrefine.org)The Sample SpreadsheetAnother sample DatasetBonus: The twitter search to graph tool

 

Step 1: Basic Social Networks

Throughout this exercise we will use Gephi for graph analysis and visualization. Let’s start by getting a small graph into gephi.

 

Take a look at the sample spreadsheet - this is data from a fictional case you are investigating.

In your country the minister of health (Mark Illinger) recently bought 500,000 respiration masks from a company (Clearsky-Health) during a flu-scare that turned out non substantial. The masks were never used and rot away in the basement of the ministry. During your investigation you found that during the period of this deal Clearsky-Health was consulted by Flowingwater Consulting and paid them a large sum for their services. A consulting company owned by Adele Meral-Poisson. Adele Meral-Poisson is a well known lobbyist and the wife of Mark Illinger.

 

While we don’t need to apply network analysis to understand this fictional case - it helps understanding the sample spreadsheet. Gephi is able to import spreadsheets like this through it’s “import csv” section. Let’s do this.

 

Walkthrough Importing CSV into GephiSave the Sample Spreadsheet as csv (or click download as → comma seperated values if using google spreadsheet)Start GephiSelect File → OpenSelect the csv file safed from the sample spreadsheet.You will get a import report - check whether the number of nodes and edges seem correct and there are no errors reported
