Has a social network analysis visualization been done using tools such as Gephi? If yes, can I see some examples?

SO isn't a social network, so how can you do a social network analysis on it? There's no concept of "friends" or even really linkages of any type. –  Daniel DiPaolo Apr 15 '11 at 21:15

for example, visualizing users - users via questions and answers asked. –  EquinoX Apr 15 '11 at 23:24

Just because the focus isn't social does not mean that there isn't a social component. Why else have chat? Visualizing a relationship between askers and answerers would be interesting. –  this.josh Apr 22 '11 at 19:38

I've just released an application which converts Stack Exchange data dumps to GraphML, which Grephi can read (though the Stack Overflow data is large enough that Gephi struggles with it -- but igraph in R works fine). Have at it!
