SocioViz is a social media analytics platform powered with Social Network Analysis metrics launched in 2014. Now was completely redesigned; actually analytics are available for Twitter only but in the near future will be extended to other main social media channels. The only prerequisite needed is having a Twitter account that will be used to query the Twitter API and gather results.
In addition to a new solid and secure infrastructure several new features was implemented:
- Search for any keyword, hashtag, emoji or user mention filtering by date and language
- Collect posts in real-time or search one week in the past (last 7 days) up to 50.000 tweets
- Various Social Network Analytics are available (users, hashtags, words, emoji)
- Export statistics and network data in various formats such as GEXF, GML, CSV, XLSX
A big news, two type of searches
Historical searches (in blue) allows you to search 1 week in the past with a maximum of 50.000 tweets for each query. Recurring searches (in green) collect tweets in “real-time” (new tweets are periodically collected and stored in groups of 100) with a maximum of 50.000 tweets per query. Please notice that number of concurrent searches and maximum of extracted tweets depends to your plan. Subscribe a free plan and click on upgrade my plan for more details.
