Hi Natalie,

SocioScope (socioworks.com) uses attribute and alter lists and tie lists that you type into it, to collect data directly in the software so there is no need to manipulate data formats to get data into a typical network analysis package. There are some† flexible visualization capabilities in it, but no analytical capabilities. This works very well for seminar-type sessions involving social networks, especially when you want to actually generate a social network from scratch but you're not going into the descriptive or statistical metrics that social network analysis algorithms generate. Good luck!

I think, that playing around with their Facebook ego-network should entertain them a bit. You should try Bernie Hogan's NameGenWeb application for that:

Another interesting tool for social network exploration is theyrule.net, which shows how companies are connected through common board members (and vice versa):

Hope that helps,
Alex.

Hi SOCNET-ers

We are hosting students from developing nations this summer and Iíve been tasked with delivering an intro to social network analysis session. The entire session is just 2 hours long, students are unfamiliar with SNA and have limited quants skills, and so I am looking for materials/activities that are straightforward, practical, insightful and fun!

Does anybody have any materials they would be willing to share?

I would be very grateful!

Best wishes

Natalie
