Social Network Analysis (SNA) Report
The main aim of this assignment is to start you thinking about social network analysis and strategy. Your first step will be to form a group of 3 or 4 members and to select an industry. Each group member will then need to pick one organisation (within the chosen industry) that is active on Twitter (please check on Twitter!). If a group has 3 members, then there will be 3 organisations, otherwise, if there are 4 members, then 4 organisations will be featured in the report.
Each group member will need to produce their own analysis before a summary of results is put together for the industry. Once the industry and organisations are selected, please consult your tutor for approval as your step 2. No two students should feature the same organisations in their analysis.
Step 3 is to understand the organisations social media footprint. Here, each member needs to review how many platforms the selected organisation currently exist on (e.g. Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, Instagram etc). Your team will need to understand how and what each platform is used for and how many accounts each firm has for each platform. Some firms have more than one account in each platform to represent different business streams. This will also include details such as likes, favourites, followers, following etc. For example, IBM may have 5 other (peripheral) twitter accounts apart from the main account. Groups will need to make a note of each platform and carefully observe/analyse each account and the interactions within to interpret the social media footprint.
Your 4th step will require you to map a SNA on your chosen organisation using NodeXL. Each member must be conversant with the software and be able to run analysis and interpret the data of their chosen organisation/Twitter account. Your group report should have the following (i.e. one for each member):
• Organisation background and social media footprint
• Agenda for each social media platform and account-specific
• An analysis on chosen account Twitter and the threads within
• What was the SNA based upon (and why)
• Number of network members and their interactions
• Clusters / Groups found
• Key network members
• Nature of interaction (in-degree and out-degree) within clusters and externally as well
The 5th step is to draw a summary and conclusion for the overall industry which should include a strategy section discussing what should be considered in future based on their current SNA mapping this could also include comments on the social media platforms. It is essential to show critical analysis and understanding to reflect and offer a strategy to the industry in general but also each organisation.
The 6th step is to present the data in class Week 11/12. This 15mins presentation is worth 20% of the final assessment.
