Using hybrid networks for the analysis of online software development communities
Social network-based systems usually suffer from two major limitations: they tend to rely on a single data source (e.g. email traffic), and the form of network patterns is often privileged over their content. To go beyond these limitations we describe a system we developed to visualize and navigate hybrid networks constructed from multiple data sources ? with a direct link between formal representations and the raw content. We illustrate the benefits of our approach by analyzing patterns of collaboration in a large Open Source project, using hybrid networks to uncover important roles that would otherwise have been missed. Author Keywords Online communities, social networks, natural language processing, visualization. ACM Classification Keywords H5.m. Information interfaces and presentation (e.g., HCI): Miscellaneous.
