SONDY: An open source social media data mining software


SONDY (SOcial Network DYnamics) is an open source software written in Java for collecting, analyzing, and mining data generated by social media. Its main focus is on event detection and influence analysis. The goal of this software is to provide a way to identify events to which people react, and to identify the most influential people inside these events. To this end, SONDY implements several state-of-the-art algorithms and various visualizations that allow for an efficient exploration of the data. SONDY also offers data pre-processing functionalities and features an advanced user interface.
