Just in time for sunbelt, I want to invite you to beta-test the new NameGen Facebook downloader. Its still in beta but it's pretty slick. It downloads attributes, exports to GraphML, GDF, DL and JSON and visualizes your network in the browser.  


This is part of a research study on the educational use of personal networks, so we would like to contact you afterwards. BUT that part is completely voluntary and not necessary for downloading your network. This work was done with my D.Phil student Joshua Melville. If you have any comments or questions seek me out at the conference. 

ALSO, this is in addition to the NodeXL Facebook plug-in, which also downloads Facebook networks directly into NodeXL. That program can download both egonets as well as comments / likes from Facebook fanpages (as both 1 and 2-mode networks). That work was done with Marc Smith and our collaborator from Aachen University, Arber Ceni. 


Take care,

Dr Bernie Hogan
