Facebook Friend Graph
The purpose of this package is to generate a GraphML file which can be used to make graphs like the ones created by following the directions outlined in a presentation by Sociomantic Labs titled Facebook Network Analysis.
This software produces a file comparable to the one the Netvizz Facebook
app (referenced in the presentation) would provide. So if you follow the
presentation directions starting with "1. Gephi: Open", replacing
.gdf file from Netvizz with the
.graphml file this software generates,
you will get a graph like the one in the presentation.
