SocNetV (Social Network Visualizer) is a flexible, user-friendly free software application for social network analysis and
It lets you create social networks (graphs) with a few clicks on a virtual canvas or load networks of various formats (GraphML, UCINET, GraphViz, Adjacency, Pajek, etc) and modify them to suit your needs.
The application computes graph theory metrics, such as density, diameter and distances (shortest paths) in directed and undirected, weighted or non weighted graphs. It also supports node and network centrality and prestige indices, such as closeness, betweenness, eigenvector, information, power centralities and pagerank prestige.
Community detection and structural equivalence algorithms are included, such as triad census, clique census, hierarchical cluster analysis, actor similarity and tie profile dissimilarities.
Various layout algorithms (i.e. Kamada-Kawai, Spring-embedder, circular and in levels according to centrality or prestige) are supported for meaningful visualization of your network.
Furthermore, SocNetV generates random networks using various models such as Erdos-Renyi, Scale-Free, Small-World, d-regular etc.
The application also includes a simple web crawler to create a social network of web pages, where edges are the links between them.
