    S •Diameter - the largest distance in the (connected) network •Density - the proportion of all possible ties that are actually present •Reciprocity - the likelihood of edges in a directed network to be mutually linked •Modularity - the strength of division of a network into clusters •Degree Centrality – risk of node catching whatever is flowing through a network •Closeness Centrality – average length of the shortest path between the node and all other nodes in the graph •Betweenness Centrality - quantifies the number of times a node acts as a bridge along the shortest path between two other nodes •Eigenvector Centrality - a measure of the influence of a node in a network •
  9. None

  11. How many connections does each character have? How important is

    the character in connecting the network together? http://evelinag.com/blog/2016/01-25-social-network-force-awakens/

    T U D E N T Diameter: 7 Density: 0.0036 or .3% Reciprocity: 0.184 Large diameter Not very dense One-way connections Takeaway: A few key hubs related to the hashtag use with connection among and between. Definitely a conversation happening that’s worth fostering.
  13. # L I F E A S A J S

    T U D E N T Diameter: 7 Density: 0.0036 or .3% Reciprocity: 0.184 Large diameter Loose
  14. # G O D U C K S Diameter: 5

    Density: 0.004 or .4% Reciprocity: 0.015 Large diameter Loose More one-way connections
  15. @ G O D U C K S Diameter: 14

    Density: 0.0042 or .4% Reciprocity: 0.02 Large diameter Loose More one-way connections
  16. @ D U T C H B R O S

    Diameter: 10 Density: 0.00070 Reciprocity: 0.038 Large diameter Takeaway: Lots of diverse, unconnected conversations. But some clear hubs of people worth exploring to determine what they are talking about.
  17. @ K O B E B RYA N T Diameter:

    7 Density: 0.001073 Reciprocity: 0.001073 Large diameter Takeaway: Big, loose network with very few reciprocal connections.
