Reaction: Balancing Systematic and Flexible Exploration of Social Networks

The paper talks about a system called SocialAction that help visualize Social Network Analysis measures. What I found interesting about the tool set is that it allows the user a wide range of choices in measures. Usually, analysis of a social network graph can get so complicated that extracting approprite data to visualize it become difficult. The several ranking of interests that a user can choose from also helps make the process easier. The process of finding cohesive groups of nodes and how SocialAction makes the process easier was an interresting read.
