Facebook Personal Network Size Limitation?

Apr 17, 2013 at 11:03 PM
Hi Tony (or other members)

A quick question about importing the GraphML Facebook Personal Nework file by using Dr. Hogan's Facebook app : Is there any size limitation?

I'm teaching how to use NodeXL and will give my students an assignment about visualizing and analyzing their FB personal network next week. A couple of students said that they have about 2,000 friends (!!) in FB, and I'm slightly worried if NodeXL wouldn't work for such a large network.

How would you think?

Thanks!



Best,

Hello, Hazel:

I'm afraid I don't know the answer to that. If Marc doesn't know, either (he reads these questions, too), then the best way to find out is to post your question at http://socialnetimporter.codeplex.com/discussions. That's the home of the group that created the Facebook importer. (The importer is actually a "plug-in", and not part of NodeXL itself.)
