In this workshop conducted by Dmitry Paranyushkin from Nodus Labs hosted at Berlin’s most important co-working hub betahaus, we will demonstrate how one can visualize and analyze a social network or a community (using an example from Facebook selected by the participants). We will find out how to identify the most influential nodes within a network, various subgroups within a community, and the most efficient communication strategies to spread information within a group.
We will also discuss what behavior within the network fosters stronger ties between the members and a more sustainable community.
We will use free open-source Gephi software for this demonstration, so it’s highly recommended to download and install it before the session from www.gephi.org
This event will also be first event of the Gephi Meetup Group in Berlin and we can move to betahaus cafe after to discuss further questions after the workshop.
