Hi guys,

I'm conducting Google+ research for a client of mine. I was wondering how I could get invites or get access to Circloscope when the account is not mine. Do you guys know any other Circloscope alternatives?

HELP Hi, I've just logged into NOD3x with my G+ account and was just wondering how long it should take for data to load - I thought it was in real-time?

I set up a simple project HDR-photography and used the keyword #photography (with the intention of adding more later).

However, nothing seems to be loading apart from the default food-drink project. Is it working?

Hi +Lee Smallwood and other Nod'ers! I'm just catching up here but decided that the best way to really get a handle on how +NOD3x works is to set it up with different pages. So I've started the 30 day challenge... a little late... on my personal profile, company page and two other +pages to try out different keyword combinations and to play with different project settings.

Can NOD3X do this?
If no, can I request it? :P
See here:
http://bit.ly/18R1cuw 
which was produced using:
http://inmaps.linkedinlabs.com/

I like that it shows me different groups of connections that I have, with auto-assigned colour categories. It also is a good way for me to discover the crosslinks between groups that I didn't realize had crosslinks.

I have many many many more people circled on G+ than I have connections on LinkedIn, but this means I want this type of analysis here so much more.

It would be nice to run this analysis on all of the people/pages I have circled, but I think it would be even more useful to be able to constrain the analysis to a prescribed set of circles. I would also like to turn off the in-direct connections. Only show my direct connections, and the connections between these people.

Keep up the great work! I love using NOD3X!

I really like the Google+ relationships tool. Is there any way I can limit the analysis to a subset of the people I follow by selecting which of my circles to analyze?

Today I'm exploring commonalities between cultured bacterium and social networks - nod3x.com (with an obligatory pint of cider) 

- The evolution of social behaviour in microorganisms [2001]  - Colony structure in Escherichia coliand other bacteria. Some bacteria exhibit complex spatially organized cellular differentiation in their colonies,  which might function to maximize growth rates and enhance survival and reproduction. - http://goo.gl/DOY5Lo [PDF link]

- Bacteria Exhibit Altruistic Behaviour [2012] - Bacteria can form social networks and have a partitioning of tasks. Bacteria are coordinating with one another, and they’re sharing resources. -http://goo.gl/BmavZj [WEB link]

Hope you're having a great wekend :)

Dude. your too much. :) I never knew that bacteria have altruistic behaviors. :) I'm a little worried about me because it makes sense. Survival of the fittest. ;)

Community Identification Using NOD3x

Following on from a post from +Thomas Power this morning on Interpersonal Ties aka Strong/Weak ties in #SNA  (social network analysis)

Here's an example of community identification using +NOD3x more specifically - identification of the weak ties that assist in increasing how content is seen by more people.

By mousing over nodes in our relationship graphs the edges (connecting lines) turn orange highlighting the how the content moves and becomes visible beyond the originators post.

+Lee Smallwood Basically, one network acts as the inspiration for others. Similar network effects are at play in the internet. While everyone can be connected to every one, some connections are more important. Random connections between nodes which are far apart leads to improved network performance (how a message or information flows within the larger network). One key (widely accepted) difference between Google plus and Facebook is that Google plus connects relative strangers while Facebook helps people communicate with their regular social connections in a social context. 
So if we are considering "social network" as a network of people as opposed to network of users of a particular service, the people connected by G+ are farther apart than those connected by Facebook. If active G+ users share their content on FB, G+ will be a huge influencer on G+. 
In order to do a good analysis, we will need information and correspondence between users G+ and facebook accounts. 
Therefore you will have to have a system to encourage users to trust you with their facebook, why not even twitter, ids 
Let people have full fledged user profiles for Nod3x so that they can save data such as user ids of other network and let Nod3x visualize the cross connections.

1st February Update

We're back after 2 weeks off (thanks for your patience) to optimise our servers (it's an ongoing process!) but now results are being returned under 5 seconds rather than 30-40 seconds...

Also, we've made it easier for you to find your saved searches. `I know several of you have searches in excess of 400 key terms (approx 25 pages) so we've added a column filtering process - when clicked orders the searches alphabetically, date started or by grouped tags.

And just for good measure we've enabled a search by keyword function as well :)

Thanks for your continued support - we've a lot of updates being rolled out over the next 7 days so watch this space :)

Cheers

Lee

Visualising website architecture and navigation

So last week I showed the result of crawling a Google search using +NOD3x (http://nod3x.com) ... now we're able to index sites (internal and external links ), visualising how internal linking structures are optimised for an enhanced visitor experience or not in some cases...

The example below is using +SEOmoz site

Image 1 shows linking structure
Image 2 shows detail on clicking / hovering over nodes
Image 3 shows linking structure with additional detail of unique anchor texts used in internal linking.

Hi +Lee Smallwood Trying to find my way back to the 30 day challenge but it isn't showing up in my list of communities, this on isn't either but I found it through search.  Can you direct me to it please?

I wanted to ask about this:  It would explain some things for me. I found this as a comment on a YouTube video:

"activity" means users opening the Google+ homepage and scrolling, commenting, and clicking on things.

Does NOD3x also measure scrolling? That would explain something for me.  That is why I have some people all over me (possibly problem users) that never engage.

Thanks,

Rusty

Google+ Relationship Analysis Question
Would it be easy for you to indicate in the CSV download which profiles/pages are I already have circled, and which ones I don't?

I would like to do an eigenvector centrality analysis, but then only look at a list of those I don't currently follow, or vice versa.

hi Lee, can you talk about the distances of each cluster relative to each other. For example, the position of Tuberculosis in the center, vs. HIV and eColi on different ends of the diagram. thank you

Is there an indication given for when my Eigenvector Centrality analysis has ended? (Or any of the other options)

The graph currently still says "Loading Circles". will I be told when the analysis is done? Its been running for hours. (Though I do have a lot of people circled)

Am I just being impatient?

Also, once the analysis is finally done, is there a way for me to save the result so I can keep coming back to it later without having to run the analysis again?

Thanks for this awesome tool!

+NOD3x Is it finished when the "loading circles" goes away?  Took me a while before I noticed that. i wondered why things kept jumping around on me. LOL

Network: Chromecast

I've not observed a network quite like this for sometime!

The conversations people are having in relation to #Chromecast  is interesting. However, what's more interesting is the amount of engagement these posts are receiving and those same people  are engaging on a multitude of related posts. 

Why is this happening?

The topic is trending - due to people posting about it - no rocket science there...! However, that doesn't explain the interconnecting network example in the image below.

One observation is that people are researching as much as they can  - therefore the increased high closeness centrality instances (i.e. how the spread of information relating to Chromecast has risen) is due to shortest path connections.

If you'd like to see this network  #dataset  use this link -http://goo.gl/QUnE9T

If you want to view the NOD3x dashboard for this data -http://goo.gl/avD5wQ - I've made it public.

To access, when prompted just click 'Google Sign-in'

As we're approaching v2 launch of +NOD3x, it now feels right to awaken this community.

Here's a great post from +Thomas Power discussing network ties

#sna   #socialnetworkanalysis  
 
The most powerful sentence ever written on the web from Mark Granovetter's 1973 PhD ...Weak social ties, it is argued, are responsible for the majority of the embeddedness and structure of social networks in society as well as the transmission of information through these networks. Specifically, more novel information flows to individuals "through weak rather than strong ties". Because our close friends tend to move in the same circles that we do, the information they receive overlaps considerably with what we already know. Acquaintances, by contrast, know people that we do not, and thus receive more novel information.

Hi +Lee Smallwood , This last week I came back to try NOD3x again after not having used it for a few months, because most of my queries especially any on my own profile were failing. I find however I'm still having much of the same problems, most queries just hang and I have yet to make one successful query of my own profile showing all the nodes. As one of the early admirers of this system, I feel it's really a shame that such a great idea can't get the resources needed to make it successful. I don't believe most people would have as much patience as I and keep retrying after so many failed queries, so probably wouldn't come back.

So I'm wondering if it's possible and if you looked into bringing a server resource rich partner on board that can perform the kind of large volume queries and data crunching that is needed to make something like this work. A great idea is only that, if we can't get the power behind it to make it work.

So what what do you think, am I just doing my queries all wrong, or is there a way we can get a much more functional system out of this which can handle the increased data from all these G+ profiles that are growing far more rapidly than they used to be?

we're currently prepping our servers (all 11 of them) ready for production launch next week. 

So apologies for lack of updates and communications over the last few days...

Normal service with improved (not seen before) functionality will be resumed after the weekend ;)
