Dr.Mamta Madan, Dr.Meenu Dave, Ms. Meenu chopra

Abstract


In this paper, we explore and use different social networking analysis applications to have network description, layout, framework and exploration. We test these network analysis and visualization applications with the online social media graph network data set fetch from the ego (personal) social network or online higher education social media groups. We will display how these network analysis software applications (NASA) work with a sequence of operations starting data import to the calculation of network metrics and processing of network presentation through classification, cleaning, and assembling functions. These various actions will disclose important patterns or motifs of interactions between participants in the online social media group on Facebook. At last, we discuss case studies related to Facebook higher education groups by using and exploring these software applications for network analysis.
