I am working on a University project where I am mapping Buy and Sell groups on Facebook. My goal is to map specific groups (in which I have membership), to see if I can find any patterns on when, where and in which quantity specific products are up on offer.
- I would need to sort out the adds in a facebook group offering a specific product. The option here is if I can search for text. For example: "nintendo". In order to see how many adds have that word in it.
- When extracting data from facebook, will I be allowed to extract archived posts and thereby access 'old' material'?
I am new to social network analysis, but my question is more broadly if you think that Nodexl could help me generate any interesting insights for my research?
Thanks in advance,
