Studying Browsing Pattern

Feb 13, 2011 at 8:23 AM


This is Sohaib Naseem, First of all I must say that NODEXL is an excellent tool for students for social network analysis. It helped me a lot.

Now recently what  I am working is a project where i am analyzing the browsing pattern of the specified location. for example: Pakistan

I need to figure out that where [particular number of users (population sample)] are spending much of their time and in which sort of activities. Can I figure out this browsing pattern via NODEXL?

and what about the data of Facebook? any possibilities?

Any suggestion would be much helpful for me.

I'm glad you've found NodeXL to be a useful tool.

Can you explain more about the data that you are attempting to analyze?  Namely, where does the data come from, what does a vertex represent, and what does an edge represent?
