Social media networks are present in all forms of Web 2.0 application that connect people and objects together. While most systems author these directed graph network structures, few enable the extraction, analysis, and visualization of social media networks. This workshop reviews the free and open NodeXL (network overview, discovery, and exploration) add-in for Excel 2007/2010. Using NodeXL, attendees will be able to build networks of connections among people in social media systems like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, flickr, email, and the Web. Using NodeXL visualization and analysis features, it is possible to create ranked lists and visual maps of collections of connections that illustrate overall structures and key individual positions. Examples will be generated based on recent current events, topics of interest, and the CFP conference itself.
