Download network data

This network is in the collection of Miscellaneous Networks

Visualize slashdot-threads's link structure and discover valuable insights using our interactive graph visualization platform. Compare with hundreds of other networks across many different collections and types.


NameSlashdot threads
CategorySparse Networks
ShortSlashdot threads
Vertex typeUser
Edge typeReply
Edge weightsMultiple unweighted edges, Edges have timestamps
DescriptionThis is the reply network of technology website Slashdot. Nodes are users and edges are replies. The edges are directed and start from the responding user. Edges are annotated with the timestamp of the reply.

Interactive Visualization of Node-level Properties and Statistics

Tools for Interactive Exploration of Node-level Statistics

Visualize and interactively explore slashdot-threads and its important node-level statistics!

  • Each point represents a node (vertex) in the graph.
  • A subset of interesting nodes may be selected and their properties may be visualized across all node-level statistics. To select a subset of nodes, hold down the left mouse button while dragging the mouse in any direction until the nodes of interest are highlighted.This feature allows users to explore and analyze various subsets of nodes and their important interesting statistics and properties to gain insights into the graph data
  • Zoom in/out on the visualization you created at any point by using the buttons below on the left.
  • Once a subset of interesting nodes are selected, the user may further analyze by selecting and drilling down on any of the interesting properties using the left menu below.
  • We also have tools for interactively visualizing, comparing, and exploring the graph-level properties and statistics.
