What can we learn about Somalis from their Facebook networks? by  KIMO QUAINTANCE published 22/08/2011

I found this on a blog that was awesome! Quaintance provided several examples of the same type of visualization showing with more points more clusters/patterns appear to a point and then the visualization became over saturated. I would definitely recommend giving the article a read.

“No subjects declined access to their network data or refused permission for the data set to be retained, and all were quite interested in the resulting visualizations. Many reported that they were impressed with the visual structure of their network, were surprised by finding unexpected friend-to-friend linkages during the analysis, and most requested a copy of the resulting visualizations, often so they could share them back on Facebook. There seemed to be a certain pride in seeing their friend networks, with comments such as “this is my universe”, or “my galaxy of friends” common.” -Quaintance

I love that people took their personal visualizations and showed them off. There is something really exciting about that.
