Facebook Importer, New and Need to Use

Apr 17, 2013 at 2:17 AM
Hi there, and thanks for your time.

I need to use NodeXL's Facebook importer addon to make three different visualizations, and 'tell a story', etc. I have gotten my data loaded into NodeXL, but I'm having trouble understanding how to do much more. I have created a set of groups (I don't really know what they were based upon). Unfortunately I did most of the work about 2 weeks ago so I'm a bit hazy I what I did.

My main question is, are there any tutorials for using facebook data within NodeXL? It is sort of hard to just pick up and use. There are only a few YouTube tutorials, and they tend to be pretty poor and/or way too long to use.

Thanks, and if there is any beginner's documentation that would be appreciated.

Hello Nick,

actually there is no detailed and specific tutorial on how to use Facebook data in NodeXL, but there is a really good documentation about NodeXL here https://nodexl.codeplex.com/documentation and you can adapt the same ideas to the Facebook data. If you check this post https://socialnetimporter.codeplex.com/discussions/355491 there is an explanation of the network types supported by the importer.

Hope this helps!
