The social network visualization challenge
Simply put, a social network is a structure of social actors joined together by connections.
If you understand this structure, you have a much deeper knowledge than if you assessed the social actors in isolation.
Powerful data visualization techniques cut through noisy social network data and reveal parts of the network that need attention.
Using our graph visualization and timeline visualization technologies, it’s quick and simple to design interactive visualizations that untangle complex social networks.
Social network visualization
To truly understand a social network, you need to visualize it.
Visualizing social networks interactively offers faster and more accurate insight. Using techniques like filters, styling, and node grouping and expansion, we can explore network dynamics and connections on a micro, meso and macro scale.
It’s easy to understand and explore a social network in graph format, using people as nodes, relationships as edges and additional information as properties.
Timeline visualization reveals relationships between events over time, showing cause and effect and highlighting time patterns that wouldn’t otherwise be visible.

Social network analysis
Social network analysis is a way to calculate the relative importance of nodes in a network, which helps explain how the network interacts. Using sophisticated social network analysis measures and advanced data visualization features, it’s fast and easy to understand how people, objects, and events interact.
Social network analysis measures such as degree, betweenness, closeness, PageRank and EigenCentrality are vital tools for understanding networks and identifying important nodes and relationships.
Combined with timeline view, analysts quickly see patterns of relationships as they develop.
Custom-built social network visualizations
We work with businesses, governments and software vendors worldwide to create the next generation of data visualization and exploration platforms.
Using our graph visualization and timeline visualization technologies, they’ve been able to build interactive applications that join the dots in complex critical social network data, revealing insight they need to understand.
