Sociability and networking

Posted on | February 7, 2014 | No Comments

I’m currently analysing a couple of Twitter chat events aimed at learning professionals. The analysis will mainly be qualitative but to make sense of what are often a messy and chaotic events, I’m currently doing some pattern searches on the nature and functions of participants’ interactions. This image is of a social network analysis of both communities over a three month period. Now I really wasn’t expecting something like this – more that two distinct groups would emerge with a few boundary spanners. What I’m seeing is a densely networked professional community with few distinct clusters and stronger ties between the two event communities than a casual read through the event archives would have suggested.
Network ALL2_BCMore analysis is needed on the types of exchanges being seen but its an interesting image nonetheless.
