#see power tuesdays: Network mapping
This week is dedicated to exploring networks in the inter-dependent, hyper-competitive world
we live in – the network society,
brought about by information and communications technology, as well
as economic globalisation. I am interested in networks within, and beyond states, which have siphoned power away from traditional actors such as states and their institutions.
Network mapping is a way to graphically depict who is connected to whom, to grasp and understand the logic of networks, and to identify key actors and linkages. Power resides in the capacity to mobilise network resources, and in the ability to connect to other networks.
You can try network mapping out for yourself – I am introducing you to Socilab, an application that can visualize and analyze your LinkedIn network.
