Can I use NodeXL to make a graphic social network for an entire nation?

Nov 27, 2015 at 11:24 AM

I want to analyse the facebook/twitter social network of users in an entire country and their connections with those from other countries too. For example, I want to extract the data of all users based in USA and see how they are connected and assess it with centrality data. Then I want to do the same for India and China separately. Followed by a combination of all to see how well people are connected to those in the other two countries.

Is this possible with NODEXL? I need this information urgently, so please help.

The project you describe is ambitious: a national population of hundreds of millions of people would be far too large for an application like NodeXL to manage.

NodeXL can manage on the order of 10K to 100K edges in a typical 8GB Windows system.
