There are more functions and features extended from the capabilities of SNAPP, found in other applications. George gave a long list of similar applications to this "SNA", which I need to try out when I'm free later on...
Re: SNAPP look-alikes
Hi Bert - in your request for SNAPP-look alikes, I assume you are referring to tools that map social networks. If so, there are numerous options available (some free, some not):
The reason we went with SNAPP for the week 2 activity is that it's a simple browser plugin and doesn't require manually loading data. It demonstrates social network analysis without needing the techical skills of the tools listed above.
Bert also shared one application as well, called SaNDVIS - coincidently it has the features I suggested in my previous blog, such as tags/keywords that make the threads/connections, and such... Marvellous!! B-)
Thanks, guys! Really worth it joining this MOOC! ;D
