The Knight Lab at Northwestern University recently announced a new microsite for analysts, journalists and programmers interested in exploring social network analysis in journalism. The new tool – Untangledprovides users with search tools and databases for conducting network analysis, a catalog of stories and news apps based on network analysis, and original case studies and suggested books for learning more about network analysis.

For those of you new to the topic, social network analysis (SNA) is the analysis of relationships among people, places and organizations engaged in social media networks. According to the Untangled site, “SNA can help journalists analyze relationships, visualize connections and understand central figures in a story.”
