Anyone using NodeXL for ONA (Organizational Network Analysis) instead of Social Media Network Analysis?

Would love your thoughts on this question.  Also, might there be any plans to normalize data from 0 to 1 (i.e. for betweeness & closeness centrality, etc.) and/or include a metric for the E/I ratio as well?

Thanks!

Josh:

On the metrics question, I would hesitate to add two more columns that normalize the existing columns, because we've had complaints about people being overwhelmed by the large number of columns we have already.  Given that not everyone wants the normalized versions and that you can add normalized columns without too much difficulty (you can automate the process with an Excel macro), I would argue against adding such columns to NodeXL.

I'm not familiar with the E/I ratio.  Can you tell me what that is?

Thanks,
