Facebook Page Affinity in Power BI Force Graph

Force Graph to visualize Pages that like other Pages

I love graphs, and was eager to explore Power BI Force Graph. Today I found a cool scenario to try:

Facebook pages can like other Facebook pages. Using Facebook Graph API, using a single API call, we can extract 3 levels of pages from a specific page, through its pages, to its pages’ pages. So I started with 3 Facebook pages: Power BI, Tableau and Qlik, and extracted the pages that they like. Then I extracted from the 2nd level pages, the 3rd level pages.

Here is the result:

If I get enough interest, I will write a detailed blog post with the steps to achieve this dashboard.
