"Good Community Network Visualization Model"

What do you like best?

Gephi is an open source network visualization tool that can be installed on a desktop. It is extremely simple to use requires almost no coding to perform important tasks. The ability to calculate important variables and community models as well as instantly visualize them within seconds is unparalleled. The software is free which is a huge plus and the website has really good tutorials on how to use the software.

What do you dislike?

I had to install Java separately to get Gephi to work correctly. My recommendation is that as Gephi is being installed, the user should be prompted to install Java first before the Gephi installation can go through. Also, some of the locations of the buttons have changed from the previous versions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

My recommendation is that as Gephi is being installed, the user should be prompted to install Java first before the Gephi installation can go through. Also, it would be great if a possible Gephi library can be accessed using Jupyter Notebook as I can perform other non-visualization tasks on Jupyter Notebook and quickly carry it over to Gephi without having to write a file.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used Gephi is identify patterns in my data. I had a data set with similar movie pairs that I was able to extract from an API then I exported the file to a csv and imported into Gephi. I was then able to calculate the modularity and find out which movie/node was the most important of all the movie options that I had scraped.

"Pros and Cons of Gephi"

What do you like best?

Gephi is an amazing visualization tool. It is user friendly and the GUI is very self explanatory . It is the best tool for network analysis. It allows us to easily apply various filters on the network graph to make the graph more readable. We can calculate many statistical parameters such average degree, clustering coefficient, network diameter, modularity etc. We can then change the size and color of nodes according to the parameters for analyzing the network. It also allows us to save all graphs.

What do you dislike?

The layout algorithms when run on large networks, can really load your processor. It also has high battery usage. The worst drawback is that you cannot undo a change done to your network in gephi. If you did an unwanted change, you have to start over again. The filter application is also a little confusing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend using Gephi for visualization because of the various features it has to offer and the user friendly interface. The effective visual settings make the task of analysis much easy. It also allows you to save the graph.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There are various purposes for analyzing the network depending on the network itself. Some purposes are to detect communities in the network, checking network robustness, identifying the giant components etc. Gephi makes the analysis very handy and simple.

"Visualizing Social Networks"

What do you like best?

Gephi is great in terms of easily generating and manipulating social network visualizations. The UI is easy-to-use. There is a learning curve - but not too steep.

What do you dislike?

Gephi is not great for data manipulation or analysis. It helps you do basic descriptive analysis, but for any other statistical or network analysis measures, you will need a different software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Social network analysis is basically incomplete with visualization. Gephi is by far the easiest visualization manipulation software. You can also use the same dataset to create multiple visualizations. The add-on packages help you put more details into to the visualizations including geographic locations and world map.

"Excellent software analysis of quantitative and qualitative networks"

What do you like best?

Through this tool you can analyze quantitative and qualitative data. Personally I have been able to do text analysis and at the same time data of variables of level reason like velicidad of automobiles. The best thing about this software is to be able to apply filters, statistical models, analysis schemes and still opt for very interactive and pleasing visuals.

What do you dislike?

The application module of statistical models with color filters is not very intuitive. He preferred to perform the statistical models and then edit the graphic elements of visualization by hand. To improve this aspect would be more fluid use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is essential in statistical knowledge and a logic principle to be able to interact with gephi. You have many benefits in the area of application of statistical models doing analysis of nodes and networks.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was immersed in a qualitative research in which I had to analyze the content of a large number of interviews. The contribution of Gephi too relevant because I could give quantitative strength to establish the nodes and the relationship of the language based on the chains of relationship.

"Great visualizations for large social network dataset"

What do you like best?

I am competent in using R to do social network analysis, and even then I prefer to use Gephi to visualize large networks. Gephi also provides some important measure results such as closeness, betweenness and eigenvector centralities, and one does not have to know programming in order to get these results, which makes the program very convenient to use. With add-ons, it is also possible to create dynamic networks publishable on the web.

What do you dislike?

Unlike UCInet, it takes time to understand how to color-code nodes based on the characteristics you choose, or which button works for what.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you know how to use R or Python, use Gephi as a great tool for beautiful graphs, but for other analyses, turn to your programming skills.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a researcher, I find Gephi very useful because provides beautiful visual social network graphs which are essential for exploratory and explanatory analysis.

The ability to analyze users from social accounts

What do you dislike?

User interface is very technical; made for data scientists and less for marketers.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Influencer identification through our own methodology and formula. There are products like Traackr that do influencer identification but they use their own methodology. We wanted to classify our influencers via our own method.
