This slide gives a high-level introduction to how data has been collected and analyzed for the study. Update the heading to reflect the purpose of your study.

Social graph example with highlighted characteristics

Use the graph example to introduce and explain network roles, clusters, and network characteristics that are central to your study. This simple example is good for introducing concept before showing your own social graphs.

To capture screenshots of your own social graphs, navigate to your project and click 'Save Graph as PNG' or 'Save Graph as SVG' underneath the 'Actions' menu to either generate a static image or a rescalable image of the graph.

Table with group level interaction for a social network analysis

Showing collaboration within and between groups is often very helpful. To update the data on this slide, click the table and choose 'Edit data' from PowerPoint's menu. Here you can copy the data over from Socilyzer's page.

In the example, two sets of cells have been highlighted to show that there is an unbalanced level of collaboration between certain groups.

Listing individuals in a SNA

As for the table with group level data, the graph listing individuals by a graph measure (such as betweenness) can be update by editing the data. Sorting the data using Excel's filter function also sorts the list of people in the graph.

The list of the three highest ranked individuals has to be updated manually.

Key players within a social network

If one of your objectives is to identify key players within a network it can be helpful to create an overview of individuals listed by highest closeness, betweenness and occasionally degrees. Doing this allows you to highlight who occur on multiple top lists.

Identified pairs

For some questions, it can be benefitual to list the people who have a mutual relationship. The example shows a list of people who have identified each other as someone they'd benefit from working closer together with.
