About this site

Social network analysis (SNA) is the analysis of relationships among entities including people, places and organizations. SNA can help journalists analyze relationships, visualize connections and understand central figures in a story. The Knight Lab's Untangled initiative aims to unite communities interested in the application of SNA to journalism. This could include analysts, journalists, programmers …anyone.

This initiative needs your participation and feedback to evolve. We want your ideas, input and contributions. Please email us at [email protected]!
