Visone is a Java-based software application that enables you to analyze and visualize social networks. It's free to use and contains some advanced settings that you can quickly figure out.
No setup necessary, besides Java
As long as you have Java installed on your PC, you don't need to set up anything else. This means that you can save Visone anywhere on the disk or on a removable storage unit to directly launch it on any PC with Java. Unlike most installers, it doesn't modify Windows registry settings.
The GUI is user-friendly, represented by a large window with a neatly organized structure, where you can create a new empty network and fill it with nodes, establish relationships, zoom in and out, select neighbors or incident links, as well as delete nodes, isolates or all group nodes.
What's more, you can eliminate links, loops or bends, reverse the link direction, make directed or undirected links, toggle between edit, analysis and stress mode, as well as resort to analysis, modeling, visualization and transformation tools.
Evaluation and conclusion
We haven't come across any stability issues in our tests, thanks to the fact that Visone didn't hang, crash or display error messages. It had a good response time to commands and minimal impact on computer performance, thanks to the fact that it needed low CPU and RAM to work properly.
All in all, Visone comes equipped with powerful tools to help you analyze and view social networks filled with various nodes, and it's geared toward all types of users.
